Abstract : Modeling, simulation, and display of information and situations have helped people make decisions since the first diagram was drawn in the mud. Today, computer hardware and software developments have advanced to allow very sophisticated and nearly real-time displays. The introduction of virtual reality simulations into the C3 environment can significantly improve the amount and display quality of information. World Tool Kit developed by Sense8 Corporation has been used to produce a simulation. The scenario has two opposing battle groups closing the distance of ocean between them, to demonstrate some of the potential advantages of this new and mostly untapped potential. The focus is on introduction of the technology into the C3 environment and will deal with some of the fundamental advantages and difficulties.
