Abstract : The Corps of Engineers is responsible for the management of ALBE, a program designed to focus and coordinate Army technology base efforts in the areas of atmospheric, terrestrial and topographic sciences. This program will develop, evaluate and demonstrate Tactical Decision Aid (TDA) software and products capable of integrating weather and terrain in the prediction of battlefield environmental effects. It will provide the decision making tools needed by field commanders to assess and exploit battlefield environmental conditions on a timely manner for tactical advantage. This paper will provide a summarized overview of the ALBE initiative with a description of the TDAs that will be incorporated in the system.
