Abstract
The objective of this topic is to rapidly and efficiently develop mobile applications (apps) for handheld devices and to demonstrate their utility in a number of military domains. Remcom proposes to develop within the TIGR environment a handheld app for the Android device that will provide real time mapping of various RF propagation (communications) performance parameters in urban, rural and littoral environments for fixed and mobile assets. The app will provide maps of communications/jammer coverage and link analysis to known remote assets from the user"s location. The app will update periodically based on movement or planned routes and the user will be able to toggle views. The app will leverage compass and GPS inputs and provide location-sensitive and heading-sensitive map data containing overlays of various real time data in the form of color-coded regions and icons. The objectives of Phase I are: assess the Android platform for EM modeling performance; research the requirements, capabilities and API of the TIGR environment; determine the required client/server architecture; determine the mix of C++ and Java modules needed to support the application; create a design for the non-TIGR version of the app; create a preliminary design for integration into TIGR; and implement and test the non-TIGR prototype app. Phase I option objectives are: produce a final design of a prototype TIGR version of the app; and begin integration of the RF propagation app into TIGR.
