Abstract
To remain effective, commanders must maintain situational awareness regardless of where they are. In addition, their absence from their main headquarters must not have a negative impact on both the tempo of operations and the timeliness of the planning cycle. Wireless handheld devices could be used to enable the concept of “Commander on the move” by allowing a real-time exchange of information with key DND systems. By supporting situational understanding, decision making, directive dissemination in a designated HQ as well as on the road, they will allow commanders to be virtually present at any required decision points. A prototype called CHESS (Commander HandhEld Support System) has been developed to demonstrate such concept. This paper describes the different functionalities that have been implemented into CHESS.
