Military personnel, command systems, special forces...

You need to acquire geographical tools to know the geography and strategic points of the areas in which you will be intervening, to prepare your missions and better coordinate your teams on the ground.

The Geographical Information System (GIS) is an indispensable decision-support tool for all defense branches: map production, preparing for missions and trials, intelligence and command systems, crisis management, logistics and tracking mobile teams…

Knowledge of the ground and map production

The quality of your strategic and operational organization depends on perfect knowledge of the terrain in which your military forces are training or intervening.

The GIS enables you to position, analyze and display all the geographical data and operational and technical objects of interest to you: relief, dwellings, road networks, natural or artificial obstacles, the location of your infrastructure and teams, by-passes, mines areas, etc..

You also have to share and disseminate this data interoperably with your various information systems (USRP/ASRP, military raster maps, VMAP vector products, THD aerial and satellite photographs  Spot, Ikonos, QuickBird , scanned images).

Military activities also require the GIS to include the third dimension (3D). By taking account of altitude differences, the 3D view offers a better understanding of the terrain for calculating routes and simulating an operation.

It also enables you to perform intervisibility calculations (optical) from observation points or lines while taking account of aerial range and height. It also enables you to calculate distances and firing ranges, areas, slopes or longitudinal profiles along a route. 

Mission preparation

Mission preparation

Geographical Information Systems and territorial analysis and visualization tools are also necessary decision support tools for preparing your military interventions and your intelligence gathering, surveillance and reconnaissance missions or logistic movements.

They provide key information for calculating optimal routes and movements, simulating scenarios or strategically distributing your intervention forces throughout the territory while taking account of the real situation on the ground.


Crisis management and real-time tracking of military operations

Your units on the ground also possess on-board command systems based on GIS which enable them to interpret the environment in the area in which they will be operating in order to decide on their movements and respond to unforeseen situations.

For units deployed in mainland France or abroad, the combination of GIS and GPS helps to calculate their position in real-time (position, speed, direction, map trace of the route covered) and find the nearest resupply points.
