This study investigates an application of the Navstar Global Positioning System (GPS) in Naval Exercise reconstruction. It examines the feasibility of combining Navstar GPS, via Naval Tactical Support Activity (NTSA) data collection methods, with the Mini-Reconstruction System (MRS), a portion of the Tactical Information Management System (TIMS). The study describes Naval exercise reconstruction in general. It describes the Mini-Reconstruction System and exercise reconstruction using this system. Navstar GPS is described in detail. The methodology and the theoretical background for this application is discussed. Finally, the impact of GPS input on exercise reconstruction is examined in a comparison of operational characteristics of competitive navigation systems.
