Abstract:

In 2001, the Naval Research Laboratory NRL was approached to investigate, develop, and demonstrate software on commercial off the shelf COTS hardware to electronically display precise lane navigation information. The navigation information should provide both a primary and an alternative means to guide landing craft drivers through an assigned lane to the beach during an amphibious assault in the presence of mines. Specific needs have been outlined based on input from both the mine countermeasures and the amphibious community.
