This thesis designed, developed, and implemented an integrated data collection and display system for supporting After Action Reviews (AARs) for tactical exercise participants. Data is collected with small, inexpensive, and easy to use computers. The exercise is immediately replayed during the AAR by depicting unit locations, actions, interactions, and dependencies dynamically over a digital map on a computer display. The system is intended to increase the learning of the tactical exercise participants and ultimately improve their performance in combat. Conventional range instrumentation systems (RIS) are expensive. Tactical Exercise Review and Evaluation System (TERES) can meet the principal RIS requirements for a fraction of the cost and provide the flexibility to function at any location. The data collection subsystem utilizes commercial Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers and handheld personal computers (HPC) to collect data. The HPC is programmed to passively record positions and time along with specific mission-essential tasks inputted by an observer. The display subsystem utilizes digital military maps to provide an event step animation of the collected exercise data. NATO standard military symbols are used to represent unit identities and locations. With TERES, leaders and subordinates can more easily learn valuable lessons about synchronizing maneuver with direct and indirect fire. Questions about mission accomplishment, individual performance, and command and control can now be discussed with an objective tactical picture.
