Abstract
This experiment investigated available technologies to address and enhance aspects specific to planning and siting a Platoon (Pl) defensive position in the woods at night, within the context of a larger integrated Company defensive plan. This study also assessed the tactical feasibility and usability of the tools in the digital condition. Results from this experiment demonstrated that the main benefits that were observed in using the digital condition compared to the non-digital condition were in the overall planning and siting of the Pl defensive position, as well as in the consolidation of the range cards at the Section and Pl levels. However there were concerns with the current configuration in terms of the time, tactical feasibility, and ease of use of the digital systems, specifically regarding the laser rangefinder and Trench View software.
