Terra Base II Status
Terra Base II was a training system based on MICRODEM to expose soldiers to:
There no plans to field another version of Terra Base II. The Terra Base II home page no longer exists, and no longer distributes any of the resources that complemented the help file.
Terra Base II was not updated after Version 6.03 was released in May 2003. There is no official program for testing changes as MICRODEM continues to evolve. Without independent testing, we cannot envision that an "official" release will be made, and all users must be aware that MICRODEM may have bugs. The current version has many significant improvements relative to 6.03.
The TBII name has been removed from the program to emphasize that there is no input or testing in the program from the owners of the TBII designation, and that the current MICRODEM is solely the work of one person and is being designed for education and science research.

TerraBase II was the direct descendant of Terranal, the first fielded Army microcomputer terrain analysis software for the MICROFIX. TerraBase II is the cousin of TerraBase, also derived from Terranal, but TerraBase II had independent code development as MICRODEM. TerraBase II was originally a modified version of the MICRODEM program, and later became a selectable set of menus choices from within MICRODEM .
People who contributed to code in this program:
Testing of the TerraBase II software was done by the TRADOC Terrain Visualization Center at Fort Leonard Wood, especially Mark Adams, whose assistance was invaluable.
