About MAP 21...
“MAP 21” system - is a software complex with following main purposes: advance operations planning, putting reconassistance info on the map, and coordination of operational groups during execution of orders. Operations planning means creating waypoints and current mission goals, marking different map areas using geomitric figures (look above), using layers for grouping map objects and mass processing of them (look below). Reconassistance of territory means marking enem, friendly, neutral and unknown unins on map, writing their quantity, group type, direction of movement or...
Автоматизированная система управления войсками в США
Работая над проектом персонального компьютера для хардболиста, я ковырял тему персональных компьютеров для солдат. Подобные разработки ведутся в России с оглядкой на США, мол, у них всё давно работает и используется. Ниже будет собранный в кучу материал с больным количеством картинок. Если Вы собираетесь читать статью через мобильный интернет - будьте осторожны, трафик! Современный стационарный пункт управления оперативно-тактического звена: Мне пришлось перелопатить достаточно много материала как русскоязычного так и англоязычного. Из англоязычных источников у меня были в основном отчеты и доклады, таких корпораций как Nortrop Grumman и Lockheed Martin, а из...
Сценарные игры, основы организации и реализация на Map21
Этот материал представляет собой обобщенный опыт организации сценарных мероприятий и, возможно, будет полезен как начинающим организаторам, так и уже бывалым.  К плюсам сценарных мероприятий можно отнести следующие качества: — Возможность моделирования различных ситуаций в процессе игры; — создание сюжетов с тактическими планами для каждой группы, и как следствие больше времени отдается на действие и меньше для разработки плана действий, которая обычно отсутствует вовсе, так как для большинства участников не представляет интереса; — оптимальная занятость участников дает возможность свести к минимуму количество...
Faster, More Precise Airstrikes Within Reach
Persistent Close Air Support (PCAS) program aims to improve air-to-ground fire coordination, but could revolutionize military tech development and deployment as well  Air-ground fire coordination—also known as Close Air Support or CAS—is a dangerous and difficult business. Pilots and dismounted ground agents must ensure they hit only the intended target using just voice directions and, if they’re lucky, a common paper map. It can often take up to an hour to confer, get in position and strike—time in which targets can attack first or move out of reach. To help address these challenges, DARPA recently awarded a contract for Phase II of...
Обновление системы Map 21
Сегодня расскажем о продолжении нашего проекта, а точнее о его новой версии. Несмотря на то, что система появилась в конце страйкбольного сезона, она успела пройти полевое тестирование на нескольких больших играх. По отзывам участников, было выбрано направление модификации, и вот мы рады представить Вам результаты нашего труда — обновленную версию программы Map 21. Что же ждет Вас в новой версии? Простой и понятный интерфейс Исчезло понятие режима работы программы, теперь просмотр, добавление и изменение делается в основном окне программы без лишних действий.

System control, intelligence and coordination Map 21
Dear airsofters, we want to introduce you to our project of management and exploration. Surely many of you still remember BattleTac and its failure. We are serious about bringing the topic back to life and accomplishing it. The system has been under development for six months, and the other day we did finally bring it to the alpha testing. We would be happy to receive your feedback! Those who will have questions please write in here, we will check the stability of the system. System features: - Your raster maps download with reference to the coordinates - Information synchronization on the map of the players of one side - Ability to work offline on the already...
Complex of reconnaissance and communication "Sagittarius"
Recently, in the 5th infantry brigade near Moscow they have begun to develop a complex of reconnaissance, control and communications (CRCC) "Sagittarius." The complex is produced by a domestic enterprise "Radioavionika." The tested individual set is a kind of a mobile type computer. It connects virtually any device.• When creating a network of individual complexes, the commander’s computer will display all the necessary information about the people under his command, as well as the information about the enemy coming from them. An ordinary soldier needs only to press a couple of buttons and the coordinates of his location or the enemy’s location...
NASA set to launch cheap Android-based satellites with Nexus hardware later this year
Faced with a shrinking budget, NASA will in many ways need to reinvent itself if the agency hopes to continue leading the charge in space exploration. There's perhaps no better example of that "do more with less" mantra than the PhoneSat project, the goal of which is to build the lowest-cost and easiest to assemble satellites ever placed into orbit. To create such a thing, engineers have turned to off-the-shelf consumer gadgets for parts, harnessing the internals of Google's Nexus hardware as the brains of the operation.They're starting small, however: the mission of PhoneSat 1.0 — powered by a Nexus One — is merely to stay alive for a short period...
U.S. Army Considers Remote Operations For Sky Warrior
Looking to maximize capacity, the U.S. Army is investigating options to operate its largest unmanned aircraft remotely while still directly supporting ground commanders in combat, according to Army officials.The U.S. Air Force already flies its unmanned aerial vehicles remotely, with operators located in the United States controlling unmanned systems flying in Iraq and Afghanistan. Up until now, the Army has insisted that UAV operators need to be in theater to be fully responsive to what is happening on the ground.However, in an effort to get more capability to theater faster, the service is now considering remote or "split-based" operations for its largest...
