This lightweight radio (weighing only 250-500gr.) is available as...

Grouping in Constellations

Start < Page 9 of 11 > When employed in constellations of coordinated and interconnected multiple vehicles, UAVs offer much improved efficiency compared to current systems concept of operation. Multiple tasks can be dynamically allocated between the constellation's platforms, assigning the most suitable sensor for every user and target; furthermore, several sensors can be harnessed to focus on a single, high priority...

Ground Forces Digitalization Program Israel Defense Forces (ZAYAD)

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) "Ground Forces Digitalization" Program (Hebrew acronym ZAYAD) aims at linking the "sensors" and "shooters" across all command levels, down to the single soldier. The program will improve inter-networking of task forces and units operating throughout the theater of operation, enable flexible formation of combined task forces and improve the coordination and situational awareness at...

Battle Command on-the-Move – Operation Iraqi Freedom C4ISR Lessons Learned part VIII

Start < Page 8 of 8 > US forces fully expected that movement of combat formations from the Kuwaiti border to the city of Baghdad would be swift. This speed of maneuver produced distances that exceeded the capability of today's tactical radio systems normally assigned to these formations and hindered effective communications between tactical headquarters. The Army, in response to this...

Command Vehicles get a Haircut

Cobham introduced today an Integrated Communications Environment (ICE) that allows for an optimised integration of multiple radios on command vehicles, improving communication effectiveness and reducing antennae count on such vehicles.

Cubic Defense Applications is developing a new multiband digital data link system for the MQ-8C Fire Scout unmanned helicopter.Cubic is developing the new datalink under a $3.7 million contract awarded by the MQ-8C prime contractor Northrop Grumman.

Infantry Combat Systems – Computers & Communications

Start < Page 5 of 5 > Traditionally infantry operated in small units such as squads, companies and platoons. While ancient armies used larger formations to aggregate firepower, enhanced communications and devastating firepower of the modern age empower the infantry leader to use different tactics. In practical terms, allocation of communications determines the smallest size of combat element, which can be controlled...
