LATHAM - New York Army National Guard Spc. Christina Sammons and Staff Sgt. Eduardo Ortiz, from Headquarters and Headquarters Company of the 42nd Combat Aviation Brigade get some hints from Daniel Aldrich, a field system engineer for General Dynamics on the best way to use the Army Command Post of the Future (CPOF)system.
The use of 3-D mapping gives the user the ability to operate the CPOF in a tactical operations center environment by creating and displaying and playing out different battlefield scenarios.
According to Aldrich, the 3-D mapping benefits aviation to a large extent because of the availability of 3-D aerial graphics.
