Paper Abstract

The effect of two new satellite tools on a battlefield information data base is investigated. These tools are the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) and the use of the Global Positioning System (GPS) after the elimination of Selective Availability (SA). These two Twenty-first Century developments will significantly enhance the accessibility of detailed geographical information about battlefield settings around the world. The wide availability of this data, may significantly degrade the battlefield information superiority of our forces.
