Esri’s ArcGIS software has been embedded into an engineering planning and control system – MAKEFAST - used by the Royal Engineers to help it build bridges, manage minefields and arrange demolitions in combat zones. GIS helps teams to complete tasks more quickly, make better decisions and enhances overall operational efficiency.
Read the case study for information on how:
- The inclusion of GIS in the Royal Engineers’ MAKEFAST system improves situational awareness and makes information available to inform critical decisions.
- Engineers in hostile situations can locate tasks and resources with precision to save time in the completion of assignments.
- MAKEFAST promotes greater collaboration by enabling the sharing of data and processes.
Major Clive Nodder of the Corps of Royal Engineers (RE) talks about the MAKEFAST BISA (Battlefield Information System Application), a major new GIS-based application designed to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of military engineer tasks.
