In a traditional use, during surveillance missions, sailors drew and annotated maps and tactical situations, by hand on tracing paper. The operational tool "I2MAP" is the result of the digitization of these behaviors, increased by digital and systems capacity to merge multiple data collected by the "operation center".
The transition to a digital tool, on a large and collaborative touch area increases the interactivity and the speed of data processing while giving operators the possibility to understand a situation in its whole complexity. Deployed on touch table and used in operational environment, this prototype managed to fit with its users expectations!
Intactile DESIGN realized the user centered participatory design and the graphic design closely with Ingenuity i/o that developed the tool. This « operational center of the future » project was created for and with the DCNS.
