With increased adoption of the mobile/handheld (M/HH) computing environment (CE), the Army equips our soldiers with M/HH devices to assist with their mission on the ground. However, the M/HH CE is experiencing challenges in the areas of obtaining a common operating picture and geospatial capabilities optimized for the M/HH CE.
Reinventing Geospatial is helping the M/HH systems, such as Nett Warrior, to identify and develop solutions improving the operational workflow to provision maps, optimizing geospatial content management and usage, and delivering new capabilities to support the Soldier. Reinventing Geospatial is working with the US Army Corp of Engineers – Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) to deliver an open source dismounted routing solution enabling Soldiers to plan routes based on key factors (e.g., caloric burn, shortest path, exclusion areas, etc.), and OGC GeoPackage solutions improving the delivery and usage of maps and geospatial data from Enterprise to the end user device operating within a disconnected, intermittent, limited-bandwidth (DIL) environment.
