Information needed to support ground mobility decision making is critical to the success of ground operations. The ability to rapidly obtain and process relevant information in a network-centric environment will empower warfare planners. In addition, future network centric operations that will include autonomous unmanned ground vehicles as envisioned in the Future Combat Systems program will increasingly require the exchange of well-structured information between human forces and robotic systems. Addressing this operational challenge begins with a clear understanding of the information content needed for ground mobility planning. The purpose of the Mobility Common Operational Picture M-COP project is to specify a standardized vocabulary and conceptual relationships for the expression and transfer of ground vehicle maneuver data, planned routes, trafficability assessments, and other parameters associated with Future Force assured mobility across Modeling and Simulation MS systems and Battle Command BC systems. The scope of the project was limited to ground vehicle mobility and ground vehicle maneuver information. The project identified terms and concepts across relevant data representations that will enable the M-COP capability to be achieved in the current and emerging network centric architecture.
