THE MIL C4I BATTLE SYSTEM
MIL Sistemika Battle C4I Battle System focus on Command & Control process, covering all levels from the individual soldier to the top (planning) levels of military command structure. It covers Sensor & Weapons integration, GIS navigation and mapping system, Communications suits, and integrated training tools. MIL C4I software is designed on true mission requirements, and feedback from the soldiers. MIL software can act as a true force multiplier when used in correct manner. Command and control refers to the ability of military commanders to direct forces. The addition of communications to the grouping reflects the fact that communications is required to enable this coordination. In modern warfare, computers are also a key component.
MIL C4I System is divided into several products, each tasked with a special role in relation to the level of the command and control system for which it is designed. Functionality vise, products are divided into three areas:
- Planning (C4)
- Execution (C2 / C1)
As user requirement are widely different on C4 and C2/C1 layers, software functionality is organized in the same way: C4 level product have emphasized planning related functionalities, while C2 level products, focuses on execution, weapon sensor integration, and reporting. The main goal of the whole MIL C4I Battle system is to provide support for uninterrupted digital chain of command and control, from the individual soldier, up to top level command.
SUPPORTING THE FIGHTING SPEAR
Logistics is high on a list in any modern army. Yet support specialists are hard to find, and readiness preparation times are growing shorter. MIL C4I Battle System was designed to be robust as possible, simple to use, and easy to deploy and maintain.
Based on true mission requirements, with state of the art technology is built with a fighting soldier in mind. With simple and intuitive user interface enabling the users to unlock the full potential of the system, while keeping it simple for the support personnel to deploy, upgrade and maintain.
Mission requirements dictate the required performance of the system and required resources. Low requirements for the infrastructure services, makes the MIL C4I system easy to deploy configure and support.
- No Installation required for majority of components
- Runs from USB stick memory or external disk
- Unified GIS system, eliminating the need for map conversion and special tools
- User roles, access security and encryption are built in the system. Active directory or IP Sec infrastructure is not mandatory.
- No requirement for 3rd party software (MS/Oracle databases or Office tools)
Technology built in military systems and weapons platforms is reliable and complex. This also means that its modernization cycle differs from civilian IT rules. Milsistemika has a decade of experience in supporting military IT, and has put its experience in building MIL C4I Battle System.
- MIL C4I software doesn’t require latest and greatest hardware to operate on
- Can be remotely deployed over the network
- Quality is paramount as lives depend on the operation of the software
- Compatibility is retained between versions for easy upgrades
- Older CNR and sensor equipment is supported through drivers
- Old hardware is easy to change, and new is easy to integrate
Users must focus on a mission. C4I system (and especially C2 and C1 segments) is a part of a weapons platform. Everybody expect the weapon to work every time they pull the trigger. Weapons must be simple to use, and simple to maintain. MIL C4I Battle System was designed with this goal in mind. User interfaces are specifically designed to be intuitive, and easy to use under stress. This not only improve soldier’s overall performance, but put less strain on support (less training required).
Training and Support, often threated to a lesser degree, is a key success factor in C4I System deployment and exploitation cycle. To maximize the effect of training, and minimize the time needed MIL C4I Battle System software is connectable to various training and simulation systems such as VBS3 or JCATS. For maximum flexibility connectivity is supported using DIS standard, or in some cases directly, for maximum performance.
