Paper Abstract

COTS components provide an affordable solution for land mobile display requirements. However, most military programmes require that components be available for an extended period of at least 10 years. Industrial COTS components are typically available for about 3 years, causing severe problems in supportability, with attendant cost implications. This paper will describe a COTS based solution for the M1A2 SEP Commanders Tactical Display and the problems encountered and overcome over an operational period of 8 years.
