The relevance and necessity of the implementation and use of geoinformation systems for military purposes is due to the general increase in the requirements of the troops (forces) for the efficiency, completeness and quality of the information support of the management process. The armed aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine creates new challenges to the state’s information security and necessitates a review of the requirements for information support in general and for geoinformation suppo rt in particular.
The paper determined that the foundation of the Unified Geoinformation Environment of the Armed Forces should be a service-oriented architecture (SOA) of distributed geodatabases, that provides a common platform for all subjects and users to access the resources of the Unified Automated Management System of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The Unified Geoinformation Environment (UGE) of the Armed Forces should be formed as a set (network) of interconnected geoportals, the purpose of that is to consolidate information on spatial data available in the Unified Automated Management System of the Armed Forces, that are processed and provided for use in the form of geoservices as well as creating a single-entry point of users into this environment. UGE of the Armed Forces of Ukraine should provide access to data stored in the system of distributed geodatabases. The format and method of using the services should be based on the use of national, international and military standards, that are a single, agreed and approved set of data presentation standards, interfaces, as well as computer programs developed according to the principle of service-oriented architecture for all types of armed forces.
