Abstract
Dignitas Technologies"Phase I approach combines our industry-leading experience with terrain reasoning algorithms with our growing technology suite of tactical decision aids running on mobile and embedded environments. Our Phase I SBIR effort focuses on combining these two threads to develop a common planning and tactical decision aid capability that benefits small unit soldiers. Dignitas has conducted extensive related research for RDECOM, including NSRDEC, which will provide us a strong head start on this SBIR. Dignitas has already developed capabilities allowing complex terrain analysis algorithms to be run on resource-constrained devices. This underlying capability making high resolution geospatial data available to soldiers is a critical underpinning to development of effective methodologies for routing, soldier load, and more. Dignitas can also leverage experience developing routing methodologies for NSRDEC, mobile devices, and major Army computer generated forces applications. This ability to leverage existing work will allow Dignitas to push well beyond requested Phase I scope, including the ability to prototype sample methodology implementations so as to support practical experimentation with SMEs and soldiers on usability and input.
