Abstract: Information superiority equals combat superiority on the battlefield, according to Network Centric Warfare. Today's battlefield requires Soldiers to be able to gather and process large amounts of data to successfully complete their mission. Shadow Force is a test to see if information displays can change mission effectiveness. This iteration of Shadow Force focuses on testing 2 different display methods, map-based display and text-based display, to see which is more effective and would allow Soldiers to complete the mission with a greater degree of success.
