Abstract

Currently, there is no straightforward solution to facilitate control of a rapid and deployable solution to track movements of military personnel and their associated gear. Most implementations rely on utilizing local copies of tabulated data, such as a spreadsheet application software, to monitor local movements, which creates disconnected, small pockets of vital troop data. Moreover, as these local copies get written over, the capability to track the overall progress of troops to optimize military logistics disappears with each update. Some troops utilize cloud-based document management applications, but due to minimal user access management and shared administrative accounts, tracking changes is exceptionally challenging. To tackle this, we have implemented an application that utilizes distributed, cloud-based databases with a simple management interface [1]. Using the Battle Book, troops can cut down on time maintaining standardized military troop movement forms and improve communication time with the chain of command. Battle Book also provides a reliable, redundant, and scalable system to serve the needs of the military maneuvers in various sizes.
