Abstract: Situation awareness is a critical aspect to any operation’s success. It is being aware of the surrounding environment and its elements. It is the perception and analysis of elements surrounding a unit and the ability to comprehend these elements with respect to time and space. From this information, the unit responds to situations to achieve its goals and objectives. However, when information is insuffiencent or incorrect, accidents may occur. Thus it is important to assist ground operators in assessing situations. The recent rise of mobile equipment has provided a platform to tap into. In addition, as robotics have vastly improved and become part of many military and civil operations, it is important to integrate them with the system. The iphone/itouch series is powerful enough to support a system that is able to graphically represent a situation at a glance. This project investigates the conceptual solution of building a Situational Awareness System to support the SCDF by researching on existing solutions, different methods to represent critical information within limited screen space as well as to implement a software prototype on the itouch/iphone series that can be used by operators in their operations.
