Command, control, communications, computers and intelligence (C4I) is the management infrastructure for any large, complex and dynamic resource system.1 Examples range from the relatively mundane (the coordination of railway maintenance activities) to the military. A project currently underway at Brunel University’s BITLab provides a unique opportunity to use large screen displays in novel ways to design a new form of command and control interface. The design process proceeds according to human factors criteria. That is, not according necessarily to what technology can do, but according to user need. To this end we present an exploration of the hardware and software configuration needed to support our novel interactive, multi-screen, 2D & 3D command and control interface test-bed. This C4I test-bed is being used empirically to define these user needs.
