Army Tests Command And Control In 3D Software In Field Exercise

Software developed by CG2 Inc. is being employed in the fall Air Assault Expeditionary Force (AAEF) C4ISR On-The-Move experiment at Fort Benning, Georgia. The software was developed under a Phase II contract from the U.S. Army Communications Electronics Research, Development, and Engineering Center (CERDEC), Fort Monmouth, New Jersey, under the Small Business Innovative Research program. The Command and Control in 3 Dimensions (C3D) technology demonstration combines FBCB2 VMF messaging, a Quantum3D GeoScapeSE commercial-off-the-shelf McKenna MOUT geospecific terrain database, high-resolution digital map imagery, and Mil-Std-2525B symbology into an innovative C4ISR application designed to provide warfighters with an enhanced, real-time view of the battlefield environment. The system includes 3D terrain and culture combined with an intuitive, game-style 2D/3D user interface that is designed for use in high-stress environments across multiple tactical platforms.
