Author: William R. Clemons, Clausewitz Technology

Synopsis:

An examination of the major warfighting applications used by the Army and how duplicate functionality is unnecessarily divided between tactical and operational systems. Applications reviewed include:

  • Join Automated Deep Operations Coordination System (JADOCS)
  • Portable Flight Planning System (PFPS)
  • Force XXI Battle Command Brigade and Below (FBCB2)
  • Command and Control Personal Computer (C2PC)

Observations include a review of the duplication of maps, drawing functions, three-dimensional viewing functions and common operational picture display. Recommendations are presented for the incremental scaling and streamlining of applications to provide required functionality.
