Abstract
This document defines the requirements identified by the author for map based tactical situational awareness visualization in armoured fighting vehicles. It focuses on functionality that is directly required for the crew to fight the vehicle in direct contact with the enemy. The information displayed, options, and overall functionality are deliberately minimized to reduce cognitive burden associated with the interpretation of the information and to allow a robust user interface to be designed that is fully effective on a small format display. Functionality is further constrained to allow routine user interaction to be completely implemented on a resistive touch screen (single point capable) while the vehicle is in motion. The intent is to provide sufficient functionality to support the operation of small groups of vehicles (nominally up to four) in conjunction with dismounted soldiers. Command requirements beyond that level would require a more comprehensive battle management solution.
