  1. 1. Aim

  1. To carry out detailed study and analysis of issues related to Integration of GIS (Geographical Information System) with Network Management System (NMS) in Tactical Communication System (TCS).

  2. Design and Implement integrated system (NMS-GIS) for planning and administration of communication network.


  1. 2. Scope

  1. Study the capabilities of current open source GIS.

  2. Analyze Issues and Challenges for integrated system in TCS.

  3. Study Architecture and Data model for integrated system in TCS.

  4. Suitability of existing Digitised Military Maps in Vector and Raster formats (such as .dgn, .cnr, .tif, .shp, ,dt2 formats ).

  5. Design and Implement integrated system (NMS-GIS) for planning and administration of communication network.


  1. 3. Present Status of Project

    1. Study: Completed

  1. Study the characteristics of Tactical Communication System (TCS).

  2. Study the requirements of an Integrated GIS-NMS system in TCS.

  3. Study the basics of a GIS System including vector and raster data formats.

  4. Study various file formats to store GIS data including military formats like dgn, dted and tiff.

  5. Installation of various Open Source GIS System from source and Compare them. Also compare them with Proprietary Software.

Implementation: Completed

  1. Design and implement recommended system for monitoring, configuration and planning of communication.

  2. Specify the requirements and design the system and simulate database.

  3. Select the platform, language, databases and other tools.

  4. Study various outdoor propagation models.

Features of software system designed

  1. Web Based GIS-NMS integrated system.

  2. Monitoring of network using database.

  3. Configuration of network.
