Abstract
IN SUPPORT OF THE REDEFINED "NON-LINEAR BATTLEFIELD" AND AIRLAND BATTLE STRATEGY, THE ARMY'S NEW COMMAND AND CONTROL DOCTRINE EMPHASIZES A MAJOR SHIFT IN TECHNOLOGICAL NEEDS FOR THE SERVICE WITH GREATLY INCREASED EMPHASIS ON INTELLIGENCE FOR AN INTEGRATED PICTURE OF THE BATTLEFIELD. UNDERLYING THIS NEED IS AN INTEGRATED INTELLIGENCE DATA FUSION SYSTEM, WHICH AUTOMATES THE CURRENT MANPOWER INTENSIVE CORRELATION, ASSESSMENT AND MISSION MANAGEMENT FUNCTIONS, AND INTEGRATES THE DATA FROM MULTIPLE SOURCES. THE UNDERLYING BASIS FOR FUTURE INTELLIGENCE DATA FUSION SYSTEMS WILL BE A SPATIAL DATA BASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM THAT ENCOMPASSES THE GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEM AND TACTICAL DECISION AIDS. THESE BASES WILL PROVIDE A FRAMEWORK FOR 3-D DISPLAYS AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE APPLIQUES. THE PROPOSED APPROACH, MAKING USE OF ADVANCED PROCESSING TECHNOLOGY AND IMAGE PROCESSING ALGORITHMS WILL PROVIDE 3-D SYNTHETIC TERRAIN MODELS AND TACTICAL DECISION AIDS WITHOUT THE LABORIOUS EFFORTS AND RESULTING STATIC DISPLAYS OF TODAY'S APPROACHES. THE PROPOSED EFFORT, IF SUCCESSFUL, WILL PROVIDE BOTH AN ENABLING TECHNOLOGY AND NEAR TERM SOLUTION TO PROVIDING REAL TIME, REALISTIC RENDITIONS OF THE COMBAT SITUATION.
