The final aim of C2 system is to make better decisions faster

Geographic Information System (GIS) have become more than just a specialist’s tool. It is being used by defense organizations around the world to create powerful spatial information infrastructures. Commanders are discovering that digital maps and spatial analyses help users make better decisions faster.


The GS-920 is used by military users to create tactical spatial information infrastructure, integrated into geographical database.

The GS-920 is a high performance tactical mapping system. The functionality includes track management, layered drawing tools and several analysis tools such as radar/radio coverage, elevation profile analysis and time/speed calculations.

The motivation for designing GS-920 is to develop a fast map system, which did not necessitate a high level of user interaction or systems knowledge. The GS-920 is designed and able to act in a real-time environment. The map system can be used to display tactical data, such as radar tracks, drawn objects and database information. The toolbox also enables the user to analyze both geographical and tactical data.

The purpose of the design is to also provide a simple method of interfacing with a vast number of communication methods and protocols to cover Command, Control, Communication and Intelligence (C3I) functions, relating to geographical information in a dynamic environment.

The GS-920 uses spatial databases to store information such as reference positions, place names, track data and drawn objects to store, analyze, share and review the tactical data relating to geographical information. It supports various spatial database, such as PostGIS and SpatiaLite.

Although initially designed to satisfy military response requirements, the GS-920’s versatility, user friendliness and high performance have all become key factors which now also make it ideally suited for many unclassified civilian roles where high speed interaction and flexibility are of importance.
