Abstract : This report presents a modular collection of applications that provide situational awareness using standard combat net radios. Communications bandwidth is limited, while computers continue to become more powerful. Global Positioning System (GPS) devices allow a unit to pinpoint its location and get the current time. In order to integrate this equipment, model-based battle command must be employed instead of traditional message-based techniques. A fully automated system is described that uses preplanned sequential objectives with information distribution technology (IDT) to determine the locations of friendly units.
