Mission planning and rehearsal in the modern battlefield and Military
Operations in Urban terrain (MOUT) require in depth knowledge and
familiarity with the battle zones down to the basic details. MPRDS
provides a "digital sand table" supporting operations from company to
brigade level. The system enables the planners and participating
forces to prepare the mission and choose battle positions and rehearse
on the enemy's virtual territory before the mission. The system
enables users to observe and study the area from friendly or enemy
point of view. The system can be integrated with Computer Generated
Forces (CGF) to take part in war-games at any level.
The MPDRS is designed and build especially to satisfy these demands.
Mission planning superimposed on digital 2D maps and viewing the
battlezone topography in realistic 3D synthetic view enable the
commander to plan, rehearse and perfect the mission planning and
execution. The planning products can be used as the Common Operating
Picture (COP) for real-time operational assessment and for After
Action Reviews (AAR) and debriefing.
Friendly and hostile troops and vehicles can be positioned on the map
enabling the commander to plan, brief, debrief and analyze operational
missions, training sessions and safety aspects of routine activities.
Rehearsal of raids and missions through the various phases of ingress,
attack and egress can be examined, inspecting friendly and hostile
suspected locations, concealment, avoiding potential kill zones and
obstacles, ensuring mutual support and lines of sight for the relevant
forces. Specific locations such as observations, advance routes etc.
can be inspected in 3D views showing topographical features and
reference points to assist orientation.
