MACCS van with satelite dish MACCS interior display arrayIn order to increase its experimental capabilities, operational demonstration abilities, and outreach efforts, the Humans and Automation Laboratory has designed and built the Mobile Advanced Command and Control Station (MACCS). This mobile unit, a large cargo van, features a multi-operator replica of the U.S. Navy’s Multi-Modal WorkStation (MMWS). Alongside this advanced computer equipment, this vehicle includes a reconfigurable seating area to accommodate for a variety of experimental and meeting settings. MACCS is equipped with the latest satellite internet and positioning technologies, allowing for realistic, joint operations research as well as teaming scenarios.
