Abstract:

This project explores the feasibility of networking Windows CE based handheld devices using inexpensive off-the-shelf hardware and software systems to provide Midshipmen with a tactical training system simulating the FBCB2 system - Force XXI Battle Command, Brigade and Below Blue Force Tracking. In conjunction with the YP Tactical Data Simulator, Midshipman Blue Force Tracking is intended to be used as a pedagogical tool for educating midshipmen in the concepts of Network Centric Warfare and operations.
