Paper Abstract

Affordable performance and survivability is the key to providing displays for new Army programs. The Towed Artillery Digitisation (TAD) program applies COTS computers and communications to traditional artillery functions in order to increase lethality and effectiveness at minimal expense. The human interface requires the flexibility of displays to facilitate the decision loop and to implement the gun interface. GDC is tasked with providing two different displays for the TAD program and this paper will focus on how functional and performance requirements were met at affordable cost. The TAD displays operate in extreme environmental conditions and we describe both the functions of these displays within the TAD system and how GDC addressed the environmental issues.
