As a result of dramatic growth in the capabilities of C41 systems, commanders have an immense amount of information available to them. Increased bandwidths and improved speeds in our communications systems can overload our commanders with data. One solution is improved methods of presenting information to the commander. The same advances that threaten to overload the commander with data provide a solution. Improved technology now allows us to present the information in an easily assimilated graphical, 3D or "picture" form. These new types of displays can present the information in an intuitive style that eases the commander's cognitive workload and speeds comprehension. Recent studies comparing different types of displays support this theory. Because commanders in airborne command and control platforms require a detailed understanding of a three dimensional environment, they should adopt some type of 3D display. Perspective or 2V% displays are not perfect for absolutely every situation the commander will face; but the added understanding of the action, tactics and intentions 0 friendly and enemy forces demand its adoption
