Abstract:

The tactical operations system TOS is being developed to provide field commanders and their staffs with accurate, current information concerning military operations, intelligence, and fire support coordination. This on-line, near-real-time system will consist of mobile computer complexes, inputoutput devices, storage and retrieval units, display equipment, control consoles, and other peripheral equipment, all linked by communication networks that will make data available very rapidly. With the tactical fire direction system TACFIRE and the combat services support system CS3, TOS makes up the massive overall program called automatic data systems within the army in the field ADSAF. TOS will interface with the other two systems so that data can be interchanged. Currently in the concept formulation stage, it will make considerable use of hardware and procedures being developed for TACFIRE, which is about 2 years ahead in development.
