Claims

1. A situational awareness system comprising:
a first local network having a plurality of digital communication devices, each device capable of gathering information pertinent to an area in proximity of the devise and providing information to a local control station capable of collaborating the information and provide such information to the devices on the local network;
a first regional network having a plurality of local networks, including the first local network, within an area of responsibility, the first regional network having a regional control station capable of collaborating information from the local control station and provide said information to devices on the local network; and
a central network having a plurality of regional networks including the first regional network, the central network having a central control station capable of collaborating information from the regional control stations and provide the information to devices on a local network.
2. The situational awareness system as recited in claim 1 wherein the local network is a digital audio radio satellite system having a plurality of mobile satellite transceivers capable of communication with each other through a satellite.
3. The situational awareness system as recited in claim 1 wherein the information includes global position system (GPS) location information of a digital communication device.
4. The situational awareness system as recited in claim 1 wherein the digital communication device is disposed within a moving vehicle.
5. The situation awareness system as recited in claim 4 wherein the moving vehicle is an aircraft.
6. The situation awareness system as recited in claim 4 wherein the moving vehicle is a tank.
7. The situation awareness system as recited in claim 1 wherein the information includes data, video, navigational and audio information.
8. The situation awareness system as recited in claim 1 wherein the local network is a terrestrial repeater network having a plurality of transceivers capable of communicating with each other using geographically dispersed repeaters.
9. The situation awareness system in claim 1 wherein all of the collaborated information is communicated to the regional control system.
10. The situation awareness system in claim 1 wherein selected portions of the collaborated information is communicated to the regional control system.
11. The situation awareness system in claim 1 wherein the regional networks are connected using one of the techniques including land lines, radio links and satellite links to provide regional collaborated data to the central control system.
12. The situation awareness system in claim 1 wherein the central control system broad casts the collaborated data to any communication device who has requested the collaborated data.
13. The situation awareness system in claim 1 herein the first local network includes a combination of a terrestrial repeater system and a digital audio radio satellite system.
14. A situational awareness mobile space broadcast system comprising:
a first local network having a plurality of digital communication devices, each device capable of receiving information pertinent to an area either by unit type, geographical location, hierarchy, or precedence in proximity of the devise and also provide such information to the devices on the local network;
a first regional mobile broadcast network having a plurality of local networks with entertainment broadcast services, including the first local network, within an area of responsibility, the first regional network having a regional control station capable of collaborating information from the local control station and provide said information to devices on the local, regional, or global broadcast network; and
a central network having a plurality of regional networks including the first regional network, the central network having a central control station capable of collaborating information from the regional control stations and provide the information to devices on a local network or in local, regional, or global satellite mobile broadcast over entertainment channels.
15. The situational awareness mobile space broadcast system as recited in claim 14 wherein the local network is a digital audio radio satellite system having a plurality of mobile satellite receivers, alternatively satellite receivers with local GPS, alternatively satellite receivers with local GPS location broadcast, alternatively satellite receivers with satcom or line-of-site radios capable of communication with each other through a satellite or other networks.
16. The situational awareness mobile space broadcast system as recited in claim 14 wherein the information includes global position system (GPS) location, timing, or reference information sent via a common reference hub as an GPS augmentation signal to subject entertainment receiver wherein said signal is reintroduced to standard GPS users.
17. The situational awareness mobile space broadcast system as recited in claim 14 wherein the digital communication device is disposed within a robot.
18. The situation awareness mobile space broadcast system as recited in claim 14 wherein the moving vehicle is an aircraft.
19. The situation awareness mobile space broadcast system as recited in claim 14 wherein the moving vehicle is a tank, alternatively a ship, or alternatively a submarine.
20. The situation awareness mobile space broadcast system as recited in claim 14 wherein the information includes data, video, navigational and audio information.
21. The situation awareness mobile space broadcast system as recited in claim 14 wherein the local network is a terrestrial repeater network having a plurality of transceivers capable of communicating with each other using geographically dispersed repeaters.
22. The situation awareness mobile space broadcast system in claim 14 wherein all of the collaborated information is communicated to the regional control and net management system.
23. The situation awareness mobile space broadcast system in claim 14 wherein selected portions of the collaborated information is communicated to the regional control and net management system.
24. The situation awareness mobile space broadcast system in claim 14 wherein the regional networks are connected using one of the techniques including land lines, radio links and satellite links to provide regional collaborated data to the central control system.
25. The situation awareness mobile space broadcast system in claim 14 wherein the central control system broad casts the collaborated data to any communication device who has requested the collaborated data or receives data in a scheduled broadcast.
26. The situation awareness mobile space broadcast system in claim 14 herein the first local network includes a combination of a terrestrial repeater system and a digital audio radio satellite system.
27. A situational awareness system comprising:
(a) a plurality of local communication devices capable of providing device dependent information to a regional information center, the regional information center capable of integrating and collaborating the device dependent information to provide global situational awareness information;
(b) a digital audio radio satellite system to commute the global situational awareness information to mobile transceivers; and
(c) a digital audio radio satellite system to commute the navigation augmentation signals to mobile transceivers utilized for improved GPS performance.
