Military iPad App Makes War Look Like A Video Game

Most of us have played an RTS game before such as Red Alert or Starcraft, allowing us to have a top-down view of the battle field and defeat our friends with our tactical prowess. Now it looks like the real pros will be getting in on the deal too as a new military iPad app has been developed by Textron Systems, allowing soldiers to keep track of troops from a similar angle, turning a real-world situation into something like a scene from Starcraft. The app is running through SoldierEyes, a secure cloud that runs many little applets for intelligence, command-and-control and battlefield awareness. This makes for an easy way for soldiers to monitor where friendly forces are at any given time. Too bad there isn’t a way to drag-and-select multiple troops and command them from the iPad, eh?
