Paper Abstract

The RMS-1000 Reconfigurable Mobile System is a highly mobile ground station with direct application to the needs of users requiring real-time access to information gathered by airborne reconnaissance platforms. The system combines high-performance computing and image processing workstations with command, control, and communications capabilities in a lightweight self-contained shelter. The RMS-1000 provides a capability for receiving and processing many forms of intelligence data, including imagery. Background information is presented which shows the RMS-1000 as the culmination of over 38 years of tactical ground station development. The motivation for development of the RN/IS-1000 is further discussed in the context of military requirements in a European conflict.
