Abstract:

The concept of Command Post Anywhere is to be able to disperse the Brigade Command Post CP footprint to the forces so that command is everywhere and the Command Post is no longer a place for the enemy to detect and destroy. Every functional cell of the Brigade CP operates physically apart from each other over wide distances in an area of operation, but is still connected wirelessly with one another via TeamSight - a collaborative environment consisting of a team operating picture and a suite of communication tools. This idea was fielded in an experiment in conjunction with an Armoured Brigade CP exercise conducted from 21-23 Oct 2004. In evaluating the feasibility of CPA, several aspects were considered sensemaking ability, situation awareness, operational tempo and survivability. The findings from this experiment, as determined by three measures communication activity, situation awareness assessments and contextual inquiry successfully demonstrated that CPA supported by TeamSight is indeed a viable concept.
