Supporting military forces in mobility decisions is the aim of this project involving scientists and professionals from geotechnical, remote sensing and decision-making system domains. A prototype has been developed, named ECORS, intending to characterize operations theatres from Earth observation data. Observation devices, involved as input sources, include either remote sensing or soil characterization techniques. For each kind of operation, decisions are oriented from a strategic, operative and tactical point of view. The prototype takes into account several time scales for climatic data, several space scales ranging from the few hundred square kilometers to the few hundred square meters depending on the operational level, and several kinds of information from physical to observed field parameters. The project has realized a state of the art on the possibility to use existing geographical data and remote sensing techniques that could be highly valuable for mobility performance prediction. Data collection has been done and full prototype operation tested during validation campaigns.
