GAO questions digital battlefield plan
. Money says DOD By Bill Murray GCN Staff supports digitization The Armys bid to field a digitized division by the end of 2000 to efforts as part of an ok a hit last month from the General Accounting Office.. We believe the acquisition strategy of fielding FBCB2 before completing operational testing exposes the overall digitization initiative to greater risk, GAO said..

William Bond, director of the Army Digitization Office (ADO), last month sent an action plan to Congress detailing how the service will field its first digitized division by October 2000 and its first digitized corps by October 2004.. The Office of the Secretary of Defense prevented a delay in the digitization schedule by earmarking $261 million to cover an anticipated funding shortfall in fiscal 1999..

IAT -- Education & Training -- University XXI
. The current focus is to provide digitization research in support of the development of a digital battle staff trainer for Army battle staffs using the new Force XXI digital C4ISR (Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) systems, collectively called the Army Battle Command System, or ABCS.. This digitization research effort, itself named University XXI, is a joint effort between the University of Texas at Austin and Texas A&M University, and brings to the Army two world-class academic organizations with applied research in state-of-the-art software methodologies pertaining to software agent technology, knowledge representation, and modeling and simulation.. Sponsoring agencies include the Army Digitization Office (ADO), the Simulations, Training, and Instrumentation Command (STRICOM), the National Simulations Center (NSC), and the Central Technical Support Facility (CTSF) at Fort Hood, Texas.

ARMY DIGITIZATION OFFICE GEARS UP FOR 21ST CENTURY by Alan Beck, editor in chief 03/07/97 Washington, D.C.. -- The "front line" in the US Army's effort to evolve the decisive technical superiority needed on the digital battlefield of the 21st century is the ADO (Army Digitization Office), which oversees and coordinates the integration of Army battlefield digitization activities.. The ADO is the VCSA's instrument for digitization activities across the major commands.. Likewise, the ADO is the AAE's instrument for providing guidance, assistance and coordination in acquisition matters related to digitization.. Currently we are participating in multinational projects which address these two challenges." HPCwire: What applications will characterize the digitized battlefield of the 21st century, and what kind of computing platforms will be required for them? How far are we from meaningful implementation? WHITE: "There are three key applications which will characterize digitization.
