Research Topics


The overall goal of the project is to design and develop an interactive display system (a Watchboard) which integrates real- time information from a variety of sources. The Watchboard is used to track casualty movement, optimize utilization of resources, and enhance medical decision-making. The Watchboard would be an integral component of a medical information system designed to reduce combat related mortality. The computer science and multimedia capabilities of Moberg Research, Inc. will be combined in this project to produce and easy-to-use, interactive Watchboard. A feature of the Watchboard is the presentation of an increasing level of detailed information as one proceeds through the graphical "layers" of the Watchboard. Thus, part of the Phase I effort is a classification of information using object oriented techniques and the linking of object attributes to the various layers. A proof of concept prototype will be built to demonstrate these characteristics.
