Abstract:

The U.S. Army Topographic Engineering Center TEC awarded a Small Business Innovative Research SBIR contract in July 1990 to Horizons Technology, Inc. HTI for the development of an advanced Terrain-Based Mission Planning Workstation TMPW. The TMPW will apply terrain visualization techniques with advanced decision aid algorithms and related technologies to support the battlefield commanders mission planning processing needs. The TMPW is intended for use at the brigade, battalion, or lower echelons to provide the commander the capability to visualize a battle area and perform a wide range of analyses using terrain data, current operationsintelligence data, weather information, and planning support templates. Operationally, the system is being designed to support the Army Command and Control System ACCS community and is being implemented on the Armys Common Hardware Software CHS equipment.
