Submission + - Department of Defense Releases FalconView as FOSS (

iammrjvo writes: "As part of a high-level effort to promote software quality, the US Department of Defense has paid Georgia Tech to release an open source version of the FalconView mission planning software. FalconView has been used by the military for years for military flight planning, for intelligence analysis by ground forces, to fly the Predator drones, and for other military mapping needs. Now "Uncle Same wants You" to help them to make their software better. There has been prior mention of military open source efforts on Slashdot. It seems that the time has actually come. You can even download a windows binary and plan your next mission."
