Title Army Develops Smart Phone Framework, Applications for Battlefield Operations.
Publication Date 2011

Abstract Leading his team of paratroopers en route to capturing a high-value target, SPC Hao Bui encountered obstacles - enemies, streets, roadside bombs. He pulled a smart phone from his uniform and entered the information into an app, immediately transmitting warning graphics to his buddies and higher headquarters. If we see an enemy up front, we could put it in the GPS system, said SPC Bui, a member of the 3rd Brigade Combat Team of the 82nd Airborne Division. Even though they (fellow Soldiers) can t see it, you can mark it for them. The device, known as a Joint Battle Command-Platform, or JBC-P Handheld, is the first developed under an Army effort to devise an Androidbased smart phone framework and suite of applications for tactical operations. The government-owned framework, known as Mobile / Handheld Computing Environment, or CE, ensures that regardless of who develops them, applications will be secure and interoperable with existing mission command systems so information fl ows seamlessly across all echelons of the force.
