Abstract:

In recent years military security forces have operated in a climate of increasing mission complexity and diversity. As a response to such challenges, the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command TRADOC approved a concept for a Family of Integrated Tactical Security Systems FITSS involving integrated security sensor systems to support future operations. In support of this concept the Defense Special Weapons Agency DSWA, at the request of the U.S. Army Product Manager - Physical Security Equipment, initiated two exploratory development projects at SPAWAR Systems Center, San Diego, to develop an Advanced User Interface for Tactical Security AITS and a Tactical Sensor Internetting and Integration TS2I2 capability. These projects are complementary in approach and application. AITS addresses the human factors and display technologies needed to effectively support tactical security personnel with sensor information in a clear, intuitive manner while TS2I2 is focused on a protocol architecture to support control of multiple tactical sensors using current communications resources. The concepts behind these projects and their current progress are described in this paper. 10 refs.
