Abstract

Typically, the development of tools and systems for the military is requirement driven; systems are developed to meet specified requirements and evaluated on compliance with those requirements. The real question we should ask about tools and systems in development is, “what benefit does the system provide to the warfighter? ” The U.S. Army Topographic Engineering Center (TEC) is sponsoring a series of rigorous experiments designed to answer this question and thereby help to focus its research and development efforts. The first experiment in this series, which was presented at the 12 th ICCRTS, demonstrated the value of a Geospatial Decision Support Systems (GDSS), Battlespace Terrain Reasoning and Awareness – Battle Command (BTRA-BC), in a strictly terrain analysis scenario. This second experiment in the series, building upon the results of the first experiment, evaluated the value of BTRA-BC in a realistic planning environment with a scenario that requires more complex decisionmaking. This paper discusses the experimental design (presented at the 13 th ICCRTS) and the preliminary results of this experiment. 1. Backgroun
