This paper studies the basic methods of using big data to enhance the capability of the battlefield situational awareness. In the paper, the big data structure of the battlefield situational awareness is built based on the idea of confirming representation dimension of the big data of the battlefield situational awareness, defining their memory granularity, distinguishing their update frequency and establishing their association graphs. The big data sources of the battlefield situational awareness are expanded through pre-war basic data preparation, dynamic data acquisition, implicit data mining. The paths of effective use of the big data of the battlefield situational awareness are put forward such as the general-purpose Operations View via broadcast, Sub-domain publishing local situation, direct pushing priori data, and customizing personalized data.
