Abstract : Within the RNLA a new light reconnaissance vehicle (LVB) will be introduced. This vehicle will be equipped with a Battlefield Management System (BMS). This report contains the functional specifications for such a BMS by giving answers to the following five questions: What functionalities should the BMS provide? Are the functionalities technical achievable? How do the functionalities relate to other (international) BMS programmes? Does the introduction of a BMS have any implications (technical or ergonomical) for the platform it is supposed to be embedded in? Which ergonomical aspects are of importance when BMS functionalities are introduced? Furthermore recommendations are made for future research and activities within the field of battlefield management systems for the Dutch Army.
