Out with the Old and In with the New: A Comparison of Distributed Situation Awareness Using Analogue and Digital Mission Planning Systems
Pages 26

The findings derived from the study presented in the previous chapter indicated that there may be significant issues associated with the design and implementation of future digitised NEC-based warfare systems and the impact that they have on DSA during warfare mission planning and execution activities. This research now moves towards the consideration of how warfare support systems should best be designed to enhance, rather than inhibit, DSA and focuses specifically on a newly developed land warfare digital mission support system that is currently being tested and refined in the UK military domain. This chapter presents a DSA-based analysis of the digital mission support system and a comparison of DSA when using the new digitised system and the old analogue paper map system.
