Welcome to the documentation for Debrief NG. Debrief was developed by the Maritime Warfare Centre in Portsmouth UK in the mid 90's, to support the analysis and reporting of maritime tactical exercises.
There's lots more Debrief goodness on the Debrief Home Page: http://www.debrief.info
In December 2000 the Maritime Warfare Centre decided to give Debrief an Open Source status, opening the application and its source code into the public domain. Debrief has been made Open Source to facilitate its wider use, encouraging adoption of standard file formats, presentation and practices between analysis agencies.
Debrief provides the following features:
2-Dimensional (top-down) view of vessel tracks
Ability for user to step-through exercise serials
Full formatting of data presented on screen
Palette of tactical, vector map and chart-related features for insertion onto plot
Export of plot images for insertion into word processor
X-Y plotting of relationships between tracks
3-Dimensional view of tracks using height/depth data
Gridded database of bathymetry/elevation
