Research Institution
The goal of the project is to develop an innovative and cost effective technology, that makes the local Common Tactical Picture (CTP) available to warfighters in all echelon theaters through a hands free heads-up display and Windows based computer system.Voice recognition software and touch screen software will serve as the main input devices. By collecting, plotting and updating all warfighter's GPS coordinates, the Common Tactical Picture's Friendly Overlay is updated in real time as echelon shifts takeplace in the battlefield. Video capturing capabilities aid in providing an integrated tactical picture to all warfighters through virtual data exchange capabilities between Global Command and Control System (GCCS) main CTP who serves as server andAdvanced Personal Communicators acting as clients. This relationship will maintain every warfighter's CTP updated. Physiography, political and mission specific feature overlays are generated from Global Command and Control System (GCCS) data sets. PhaseI develops the system architecture and demonstrates the feasibility of the proposed techniques. Phase II builds and delivers an engineering prototype system to the Navy.The proposed Low Cost Advanced Personnel Communicator has great potential for use byall branches of the military and real-time information exchange businesses. It provides accurate, updated information, creates a common tactical map and makes mission specific information available when such information is imperative.
