The Battalion Tactical Operations Center BnTOC workstation provides a capability for passing electronic messages, tracking friendly vehicles, and relaying status information of simulators on the SIMNET network. Part of the SIMNET Combat Vehicle Command and Control CVC2 system, it is designed to support experiments and evaluation of the soldier-machine interface and to ease task loading on staff at the battalion headquarters level. In addition to being designed to interface with the CVC2 system, it will eventually interface with a simulation of the Maneuver Control System MCS. The BnTOC workstation must also support an interface with a NATO Portable Computer Unit, or suitcase version of CVC2. Each of the workstations resides on a TOC local area network LAN and will share data with the other workstations on the LAN. The software for each workstation is unique however, many of the individual routines will be resident on more than one workstation to permit individual staff sections to manipulate data as necessary to perform their duties.
