Using Simulation for Prediction of Units Movements in Case of Communication Failure
Command and Control (C2) system and its interfacethe
Common Operational Picture (COP) are main means that
supports commander in its decision making process. COP contains
information about friendly and enemy unit positions. The friendly
position is gathered via tactical network. In the case of tactical
network failure the information about units are not available. The
tactical simulator can be used as a tool that is capable to predict
movements of units in respect of terrain features. Article deals with
an experiment that was based on Czech C2 system that is in the case
of connectivity lost fed by VR Forces simulator. Article analyzes
maximum time interval in which the position created by simulator is
still usable and truthful for commander in real time.
