Traditional military command control C2 usually evokes images of operators in command centers. We consider mounted or dismounted Soldier going from points A to B in interconnected, information rich battlefield. This is C2 on a different scale. While the digital battlefield provides a tremendous amount of information to gain a tactical advantage, there are challenges to meet. The challenge is to sift through this information and identify critical information to help plan or re-plan the mission. The team of 21st Century, Inc. and University of Missouri - Rolla is developing an agent-based decision-aiding system and technologies to train and assist the Soldier through that challenge. Our research examines planning and interactive terrain analysis incorporating spatial and temporal terrain details and dynamically changing intelligence information through battlefield networks. When given the mission intent, the system will be able to provide dynamic guidance for interactive terrain analysis and mission planning. Our system will be for the Soldier of the future trained in virtual, scenario-based simulation environments. Rather than developing specialized training environments, the emphasis of our system is embedded training of the Soldier so that the training interface is created around the Soldiers actual combat vehicle and systems.
