Tactical Ground Reporting

Definition/Scope: The Tactical Ground Reporting (TIGR) system is a multimedia reporting system for soldiers at the patrol level, allowing users to collect and share information to improve situational awareness and to facilitate collaboration and information analysis among junior officers. With its geo-spatial user interface, TIGR is particularly suited to counterinsurgency operations and enables collection and dissemination of fine-grained intelligence on people, places, and insurgent activity. TIGR complements existing reporting systems that focus on the needs of users at Battalion or Brigade level and above being focused on used at the Company level and below. TIGR’s graphical, map-referenced user interface is highly intuitive, and allows multimedia data such as voice recordings, digital photos, GPS tracks to be easily collected and searched. The system also uses a state-of-the-art data distribution architecture to minimize load on the tactical networks, even while allowing digital imagery and other multimedia data to be rapidly exchanged.
