Abstract:

This Final Technical Report discusses the accomplishments of a research effort to develop technology that enables more effective collaboration among computer system operators in a Command and Control environment where both conventional desktop systems and wall-sized displays are used. A Bluetooth LED pen system was developed to allow multiple operators to interact with a wall-size display simultaneously. A capability called micecursors without borders was developed which allows a user to move a mouse into another computer, interact with it, and perform copy and paste operations between two computers. To facilitate the development of multi-pencursor applications in Java, a Java package was developed to help subscribe to the service. Also, commercial-off-the- shelf frame grabbers have been used with some custom software developed under this project to achieve desktop sharing.
