Abstract:

This article presents a proposal for structuring a command and control system to cope with the adversities of Amazon environment, especially the poor communications infrastructure toward large distances involved. Initially it is described the Amazon environment for the area characterization, followed by a contextualization of the C2 approaches under the C2 tools developed by the Brazilian Army, as well as the experiences gained from the use of these tools in the military environment and cooperative environment with civil segment. In a second part, we discuss the systems engineering process for development of the proposed system, with studies employing Tethered Aerostat technology as communications support, alternative to satellite, HF and VHF communications, integrated to fixed and mobile wireless sensors network.
