Digital Terrain Analysis System (DTAMS)

Primary Purpose Mobile terrain analysis system for support of

forward deployed units. Produces, in hardcopy

and softcopy, special mapping products and

geographic intelligence in support of MAGTF


Sub-Functions Geographic Information System (GIS) collection

and processing. Terrain analysis support for

Intelligence Preparation of the Battlespace.

Component of the topographic set fielded to each

Topo Platoon in 1995.

Equipment Requirements The DTAMS is a stand-alone workstation with its

own input, output, and mass storage capabilities.

The DTAMS is the deployable workstation

designed to support the MEU, MEFs, subordinate

commands, and special-purpose MAGTFS. The DTAMS

workstation will host one Winchester FlashDisk

RAID with approximately 450 GB of storage. An

8-mm Mammouth tape, CD-RW, 250 MBZIP drive, and

JAZ drive will provide data backup and archival

storage. A 36-inch color scanner will provide

scanning capability for the DTAMS. Each DTAMS

will host one HP 1055CM plotter and a small

format printer. An Ethernet switch will manage

connectivity for the DTAMS. Each MEF Topographic

Platoon will receive seven sets of this DTAMS


Connectivity Requirements LAN Network/SIPRNet

Crypto Requirements None.

Normal Locations Primary location: MEF Topographic Platoon.

Attached to MEF G-2, MEU S-2, or GCE/ACE/CSSE

G-2/S-2 when deployed.

Information Managed Provides geospatial intelligence for the MAGTF

Commander throughout all phases of an operation.

The system will supplement normal mapping, by

preparing up-to-date map substitutes. It will

exploit National Imagery and Mapping Agency

(NIMA) geospatial data.

Products Created Special Mapping (enlargements/paneling) and

geospatial intelligence for Intelligence

Preparation of the Battlespace (IPB).

Lead Service/Contractor USMC/Litton-TASC

Current Fielding Status Fielding of the TGIL/DGIL/DTAMS to the MEFs is

scheduled to be complete in the 3d quarter of FY


Known Problems File format handshake with current Intel Systems.
