The IDF decided to field a LIC oriented
Command and Control version of DAP using the standard interface of the
future system. Therefore, TORC2H provides valuable field experience
for commanders and important feedback for the system's designers.
TORC2H has an embedded battle command system, both vertical and
horizontal. It Support all command and control processes, including
planning, execution and debriefing for all modes of operation.
The information layers provide the heart of the system. Targets and
relevant intelligence is presented on the "red" layer. Blue and red
situational pictures and Course Of Action (COA) are displayed with
locations of friendly forces, order of battle strengths (depicted over
a combat effectiveness overlay). Gant charts showing actual progress
compared according to plans The battle management overlay supports
operations, combat support, fire support, reconnaissance and
surveillance, logistics and communications. Information entered by
each user can be reflected over all relevant remote displays that have
"need to know", regardless to their location.
The system is not limited to helping commanders and staff with the
workflow. When fully matured, it will be able to perform simple and
automatic decisions, such as target acquisition, waypoint and
situational reporting, navigation guidance. However, current
technology is not yet sufficient to implement complex decisions. These
are left to the user, who can pick-up the favored option from a list
of recommended courses of action.
TORC2H systems are supported by Elbit's Battlefield Enhanced Smart
Training (BEST) architecture providing integral training of
simultaneous and synchronized training of live, skeleton exercises and
virtual units. BEST gateway is implemented at each C3I system, to
enable collaborative training mode of operation with the operational
systems. BEST is also implemented with real sensors, integrating and
facilitating realistic training of air force elements, UAVs and ground
sensors. As part of this training support, the IDF is planning to
deploy a 'virtual battalion", which will provide intensive training
for commanders, without the need to recruit the rest of their troops.
The system also supports the IDF battle lab.
