Austin, Texas - -(Ammoland.com)- Our new video teaser has arrived, and it is a promotion for how TrackingPoint’s technology can help create a Networked Battlefield that will impact the future of war.
The battlefield is changing, the technology of today will soon be the history of tomorrow. At TrackingPoint, we spend significant time thinking about the Networked Battlefield, where data will serve as a force multiplier. As additive manufacturing, cyber warfare, autonomous systems and more begin to change the way we think about war, we’re changing what small arms are capable of, and how soldiers can communicate on both strategic and tactical levels.
Increased Command and Control
Smart rifle technology is more than just making shooters more accurate – it can form the core platform for a networked battlefield with its internal sensors, computing power, and communication architecture. Dynamic, interactive common operating pictures using something as simple a commercial off the shelf tablet, inter and intra-squad target handoff, a constant stream of near real time critical data running between squad members, units and command structures – these are no longer concepts drawn from science fiction or the latest video game – these are real capabilities that are months, not years away.
Just as GPS changed warfare at the turn of the century, the next changes will occur via smart weapons at the small unit level, where massive increases in baseline lethality and situational awareness, with the least amount of training will be possible.
You can view the promo below, and afterwards you can check out the microsite where we explain more of the concepts of the Networked Battlefield and how TrackingPoint technology will impact the next generation of soldiers.
