Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9935585A1] A system for crew location and task assignment comprises an enterprise computing system (50), a mobile field unit (52), and wireless communication network (54) which supports transmission control protocol (TCP/IP). The enterprise computing network (50) comprises application programs (80) through which data related to the position of a mobile field unit (52) may be requested, various server machines (84) for storing position data, a local area network (LAN) connecting the server machines (84), and a gateway to the TCP/IP wireless network. A mobile field unit (52) comprises a receiver (97) for receiving position data from a positioning service, a processor (98) having instructions thereon for processing the position data, and a radio modem (86) for communicating the position data over the wireless network (54). The mobile field unit (52) and each machine in the enterprise computing system has a unique IP address assigned to it. Accordingly, commands and data can be communicated freely between all machines.
