Abstract
The Battle Management Information System (BMIS) is the Air Force operational management system deployed at several headquarters in Canada. It is implemented and managed with the Cognos Powerhouse application development fourth generation language and is based on Digital Equipment VAX computers, with VT320 terminals for text display and Macintosh computers for graph displays. The purpose of this project is to supplement BMIS capabilities without modifying the operating version of BMIS itself. More specifically, the basic objectives of the project are to a) develop an advanced generic Command and Control Information System as a foundation for building new functions to supplement BMIS operational capabilities and b) to include the development of a local area network based on PCs with Microsoft Windows, a Unix data base server, a message server, a Geographic Information System (GIS) package for the display and manipulation of map data with overlays of dynamic information linked to the database. A multi-media environment supports multi-media data and exchanges between users. The document presents the technological foundations of the advanced CCIS segment of the deployable command post, as targeted within the scope of this project. TRUNCATED
