One of the main tasks of a command and control system is to present commanders with a basis for understanding the tactical situation. A system that transforms a large volume of data into a comprehensive picture that can then be used for situations assessment can aid the commander's decision making process. A system capable of preforming this task has, until recently, required the dedication of vast amounts of computer resources. This report suggests a structure for a commander's display system that relies on recent advances in computional power in the form of a small high-powered, dedicated graphics workstation. A prototype system is included as part of the research effort.
