In conclusion, the transformation of geospatial engineering began in the late 1990s with the fielding of the DTSS and the increase in size of the geospatial teams.
Editor's note: please also see the articles on pages 9 and 12, respectively, for more on IMETS and DTSS.
DTSS Imagizer, TerraExplorer[R], and TerraVista[R] are systems that are capable of exporting standalone files to "any PC" (for example, a mainstream Pentium(r) computer purchased in the last couple of years).
The All-Source Analysis System (ASAS) is another ABCS component interoperable with DTSS. DTSS supports ASAS by providing maps that intelligence analysts overlay with the enemy situation (templated, analyzed, or raw data).
The Interim Brigade Combat Team (IBCT) has a 118-man sapper company that supports 80 percent of the mobility tasks (1) required for the IBCT and has specialized engineer equipment, including an engineer variant of the Stryker interim armored vehicle, the Rapidly Emplaced Bridge System (REBS), the Volcano scatterable mine system, the small emplacement excavator (SEE), (which will be replaced by the high-mobility engineer excavator [HMEE]), a downsized version of the Mongoose explosive standoff minefield breacher, the deployable universal combat earthmover (DEUCE), and access to the Digital Topographic Support System (DTSS) which is located at the brigade headquarters.
The Engineer School developed the Digital Topographic Support System (DTSS) to provide engineer terrain teams at the brigade, division, corps, and echelon-above-corps levels with automated assistance performing terrain analysis and creating topographic products.
The fielding of the series of Digital Topographic Support Systems (DTSS) is still on track, and we are dedicated to continue to keep topographic engineering a state-of-the art combat multiplier (see article, page 14).
