Abstract:

The automated displays experimentation program examined candidate automated display technologies to evaluate system technical requirements and to ascertain how automated display systems can best support the planning and control of tactical operations. Three automated display systems were evaluated. Each system differed in the technology used to rear project dynamic symbology military unit symbols, alphanumerics, and graphics onto a large screen. The systems had similar hardware configurations. The operation of each was controlled by a minicomputer which processed displayable data and caused the appropriate symbols to be displayed on the large screen and on a cathode-ray tube CRT display console. Each system displayed map backgrounds and formats on the large screen by means of slides. Each system also included a CRT display console and a number of other devices for the input or output of data.
