A digital mobile ground C4I system, developed by Ness technology, provides tactical units and maneuver forces with access to images, maps etc, via ruggedized computers and hand held PDAs. The system enables field commanders to locate enemy targets and identify friendly forces in real time. Ness introduced special algorithms for decision support, including assessment of optimal forces for rapid response, and prediction of shortest rout. The system can be employed in command vehicles and with dismounted troops. The system utilizes a powerful mapping and graphic tool developed by Ness, navigation (GPS) and orientation module, rout planning and display and auto-centered moving map.
