Digitized Mapping - Moving from Grease Pencils and Paper Maps to an Embedded Command and Control 2001-01-0890
In the future, one of the main goals in transforming the Army is the process of moving away from the use of paper maps and grease pencils into more embedded and computer orientated forms of command and control. There are currently many weapons platforms trying to achieve this function; however, each platform is developing their own solution that meet individual needs. The Army as a whole needs to standardize on a single path forward to ensure that all systems can use to communicate across the digitized battlefield. Therefore, each platform will have a “common picture”, and software reuse will be promoted across the Army.
