Paper Abstract

A prototype combat decision aid software suite (CDAS) is described which provides the mounted/dismounted warfighter/commander with a fully integrated and scalable decision support capability to support network centric fires and effects based operations. CDAS is based on an open architecture, software back plane concept which maximizes flexibility in tailoring CDAS functionality to meet the requirements of any sensor, shooter or command and control node within an FCS unit of action. The architecture and back plane methodology will be described in section 2 followed by a description of major application component plug-ins in section 3. CDAS has been extensively tested in a number of battle lab Concept Evaluation Program (CEP) Experiments and successfully configured to support a number of technology insertion experiments. These results will be summarized in section 4.
