The TAMMAC DMC (Tactical Aircraft Moving MAp Capability Digital Map Computer) is a system-level solution that offers the highest overall performance. In addition to the feature-rich software and high-performance graphics accelerator, it bundles in mass storage and processing speed to provide the aircrew with an easily assimilated graphical presentation of the aircraft’s present position and the relative positions of targets, threats, terrain features, planned mission flight path, no fly zones, safe bases, and other objects. Its advanced map capabilities that increase mission effectiveness include presentation of contour lines, slope shading, dynamic elevation banding, threat inter-visibility, cultural features, variable scaling, and overlays.
