In a contested environment, faster decision-making, better accuracy and greater efficiency are the keys to a decisive advantage for land forces in the battlespace.
Command Posts are a strategic link of the military value chain as they are the brain of field operations. The command post is a critical nerve centre for achieving information and tactical superiority, accelerating the pace of operations and ultimately providing a Collaborative Combat experience.
However, due to its highly-strategic function, the Command Post is also a high-value target.
The changing geostrategic context has led to a resurgent risk of high-intensity conflict with near-peer adversaries. In today’s increasingly complex battlespace, these hostile forces have the capabilities to act in every domain, including cyberspace, and allied theatre-level and tactical command centres can be considered priority targets.
To maintain freedom of manoeuvre and achieve operational superiority, joint forces will need ever more sophisticated Command Post systems.
The Command Post of the future must provide military commanders with the advanced systems they need, to have better situational awareness, decide faster and act more effectively than the enemy, while reducing physical and cyber vulnerabilities through better discretion, resilience, protection and mobility.
Commanders need agile, distributed Command Post systems that are quicker and easier to deploy and ready to interconnect operational command centres and tactical units. By networking assets in the field, these Command Post systems create a dedicated cell of information services that leverages all available information to optimise situational awareness.
THE COMMAND POST IN HIGH INTENSITY CONFLICT
