Abstract:

With the advent of World Wide Web technology, and in particular web browsing, and its increasing use in Australian command support systems such as the Joint Command Support Environment JCSE, it is essential that a capability within C3I command, control, communications and intelligence simulations such as the Distributed Interactive C3I Effectiveness DICE Simulation be developed. Over a period of three months, a suite of tools for reporting on simulation data, using a web browser as the basis for the user interface, was developed. The end product is called WEBSTAR WEB based Simulation Tools for Analysis and Reporting. WEBSTAR is now in use within the DICE environment. A set of criteria for evaluating web applications is suggested. Insights into the issues associated with the use of web technologies in C3I simulation have been gained from the development of WEBSTAR and additional research. This has provided valuable information for future web technology research and development in DICE.
