Abstract:

As the Army continues its movement toward NetCentricity, the need for face-to-face collaboration remains. Although commanders will eventually have the ability to utilize large bandwidth pipes and robust software services to collaborate remotely, there is no indication commanders will loose their desire to conduct localized planning sessions eyeball-to-eyeball. However, little is currently being done to provide computer assistance for in-person collaboration. This paper advanced user interface discusses the use of advanced user interface technology to create a computer enhanced multitouch command and control collaborative environment. The COMET Command and Control Multitouch Enabled Table team out of CERDEC C2D Communications Electronics Research Development and Engineering Center Command and Control Directorate is building and researching the system discussed in this paper.
