Before we realize it, military battles will be fought by a single unified combat machine composed of soldiers, platforms, and sensors, all operating in complete synergy and in real time.
Real-time information has the power to keep a military force one step ahead and assured of victory. Technologies already exist to increase the combat effectiveness of soldiers, vehicles and sensors by fusing them into a single warfighting instrument, operating in complete synergy and in real time. We are entering the age of collaborative combat.
Land Forces gain a critical on-the-ground tactical advantage with collaborative combat. By networking combat vehicles and combined arm units with all the sensors and effectors they carry, forces can share information in real time and reduce the process of detecting and neutralising a threat to a matter of seconds.
Collaborative combat combines vetronics (vehicle and electronics), optimised firepower, smart sensors and software-defined radio to enable forces to engage in collaborative protection, observation and engagement.
The next generation of situational awareness sensors and self-protection systems significantly increase the survivability of vehicles and their crews. The new generation combat and command system, the Combat Digital Platform, delivers smart services for collaborative combat from brigade level to dismounted soldiers. Tactical levels benefit from combat cloud services including distributed processing and artificial intelligence to accelerate the decision-making process.
With collaborative combat, armoured combat vehicles combined with UAV/UGV and air support, become intelligent platforms designed to support multi-domain operations.
