The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency DARPA developed the Flying Carpet System to help tactical commanders plan and prepare for future battles. The system integrates combined arms simulation and other technologies to display a simulated Middle Eastern battleground with static force displays. U.S. Army Research Institute personnel assisted the Armor School with an initial assessment of the systems utility in January 1991, focusing on division-level planning activities. Results indicated that the Flying Carpet has several potential applications in the tactical planning and training arenas, but numerous refinements are needed prior to fielding.
