Abstract:

The Naval Research Laboratory NRL is testing and demonstrating a prototype moving-map system on amphibious vehicles and landing craft to aid the location neutralization and navigation around mines and obstacles in the surf and beach zone. NRL proposed that a moving-map would improve crew situational awareness and communications thereby improving precise lane navigability and reducing the requisite lane width. Two platforms were targeted for moving-map tests Landing Craft Utility and Amphibious Assault Vehicles.
