Research Institution
Deploying a world wide force that is strategically responsive and dominant at every point on the spectrum of conflict involves the cooperative system development and use of advanced technologies that yield revolutionary capabilities to support the war-fighters needs. One of the advanced concepts being developed and deployed to our Future Forces is the ability to remotely locate, track and predict the movement of enemy targets on the battlefield using unmanned sensor systems and advanced tracking algorithms. This research proposes to advance these technologies and take them one step further by automating the hand-off of these tracked targets to the Unit of Action (UA) that provides fire support for the unit. Future Forces will possess a wide range of organic and highly deployable fire support systems than can deliver advanced and fused fire support effects out to operational distances. Capabilities outlined in this proposed work will allow our Forces to harness the balance of these Fire Support Assets. This will ensure mission success, improve Situational Awareness, and greatly increase the Soldiers lethality and survivability. These capabilities will support the unit’s success of early entry, forced entry, shaping decisive offense/defense, and SASO operations.
