Abstract : The U.S. Army recognizes WEATHER and TERRAIN as the two most important factors effecting the outcome on the modern battlefield. The AirLand Battlefield Environment (ALBE) Demonstration and Evaluation Program, a joint effort involving the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the U.S. Army Materiel Command, is developing and demonstrating the software, sensors and methodology necessary to integrate a priori and near-real-time environmental data into map products. These map products, or Tactical Decision Aids (TDA), will provide the battlefield commander an increased capability to make tactical decisions and thereby defeat the enemy.
