Abstract
In a military context where commanders have to move regularly out of their offices, and other static or mobile Command and Control facilities, the need to remain connected is of critical importance. Therefore, mobile technologies are vital for allowing commanders to maintain access and internet with command support tools and processes necessary for them to exercise their authority under a wide range of operating conditions. A prototype called CHESS - Commander HandhEld Support System, running on a wireless handheld device, was one of the important elements of a joint command decision support system for the 21st century (JCDS2 l ). This prototype demonstrates how exchanges of information can occur between a wireless handheld device and Situational Awareness tools (COMMAND VIEW, Incident Management System), a planning system (Collaborative Operations Planning System) as well as decision support tools developed by JCDS21 TD. This report describes the main aspects of CHESS system design.
