Terrain Analyst Work Station (TAWS) Demonstrations.
ARMY ENGINEER TOPOGRAPHIC LABS FORT BELVOIR VA
Pagination or Media Count:
The Terrain Analyst Work Station TAWS project was initiated by the U.S. Army Engineer Topographic Laboratories USAETL to develop a prototype system to meet the Armys requirements for providing accurate and timely terrain and environmental information used in making critical military planning and operational decisions. TAWS is designed for use by Army terrain analysts and is being demonstrated in the laboratory and in conjunction with a series of Army Field exercises. During each field demonstration, soldiers are trained in the functional operations of the system and allowed to test its capabilities for digital terrain data extraction, analysis manipulation, and synthesized product generation with minimum supervision by USAETL personnel. Test and demonstration results as well as feedback from various Army elements involved in each exercise are designed to assist scientists and engineers in the development of requirements and specifications for future Army digital topographic support.
