Paper Abstract

Command and Control (C2) environments require several key decision-makers to visualize, interpret, and analyze voluminous static and dynamic information of varying complexity originating from multiple sources. The challenges in providing a paramount display solution for today's mission planning relies heavily on building a large, high resolution, and collaborative display system which foster better information management, and heightened situational awareness. The Advanced Visualizations and Interactive Displays (AVID) team at the Air Force Research Laboratory Information Directorate addresses the needs of the present C2 environment, and has designed, developed, and deployed versions of the Interactive DataWall (IDW). The IDW is a contiguous large display solution equipped with multiple methods for application interaction, and the ability to receive numerous sources of data in real time. Fostering a collaborative environment, the IDW architecture enables multiple users to engage simultaneously with the display via camera-tracked laser pointer interaction, in combination with personal digital assistants (PDA). Decision-makers share the large-screen display area together by sending their applications to the IDW, originating locally or remotely. Simultaneous and multiple cursor support are fully functional without requiring any special modifications to the operators' existing applications.
