Commanders need to be continuously aware of the evolution of the operations under their areas of responsibility in order to provide directions. They also need to know the tempo of their planning staff as well as the evolution of the plans in order to provide guidance as required. Even if, in order to accomplish the different aspects of their work, commanders are often outside of their offices or their command posts, they need to continually have access to information and knowledge related to the current operations and the operations being planned. JCDS21 TDP demonstrated how wireless handheld technology can be used to allow a commander to participate in the planning and the monitoring of operations while being away from his headquarters (HQ). This document’s purpose is to provide specifications for the components that would be required to implement the wireless handheld tools defined in the Statement Of Work (SOW) for their use on the JCDS Test Bed project. This System Requirements Specification (SRS) is a preliminary report that will serve as a foundation for future efforts with regards to wireless technologies. The product, Commander’s HandhEld Support System (CHESS), is a proof of concept that helped refine the requirements for this type of technology in a military context.
