How the U.S. Army Wants to Go Super High-Tech (And Wage Electronic Warfare)

Kris Osborn Security, The C4ISR and electronic warfare integration, called the “VICTORY” initiative, is aimed at correcting problems created by a “bolt-on” approach to putting multiple pieces of equipment on combat vehicles. The Army plans to have this new architecture implemented on a wide range of vehicles by next year. VICTORY will be engineered into Joint Light Tactical Vehicles, Strykers, Abrams tanks and Bradley Fighting Vehicles, among others. Aimed at improving what Army developers call “precision, navigation and timing (PNT),” VICTORY will also make combat vehicles more resistant to jamming and electronic attacks. The Army is integrating sensors, weapons, computers, communications gear and display screens into its tactical and combat vehicles to lighten the load, streamline otherwise disconnected technologies and strengthen an ability to launch electronic attacks, service officials said. The new “open architecture” on board the vehicles uses ethernet technology to connect C4ISR systems including targeting, weapons and electronic attack applications. The VICTORY effort, called Vehicular Integration for C4ISR/EW Interoperability, is intended to lessen the need for multiple disparate GPS, sensor, display screen and communications “boxes” built into a single vehicle.   The C4ISR and electronic warfare integration, called the “VICTORY” initiative, is aimed at correcting problems created by a “bolt-on” approach to putting multiple pieces of equipment on combat vehicles.

Aimed at improving what Army developers call “precision, navigation and timing (PNT),” VICTORY will also make combat vehicles more resistant to jamming and electronic attacks. “Having a common architecture will let us share PNT with all the boxes on a platform so we only need to buy one or two receivers for that platform,” Maj. Gen. David Bassett, Program Executive Officer, Ground Combat Vehicles, said last year. VICTORY provides a phased set of standard specifications covering the capabilities needed to integrate C4ISR/EW mission equipment and platform applications. It is a set of standards and specifications with common terminology, systems, components and interfaces,” Army officials stated. Read full article

США успешно испытали бронемашину с боевым лазером

Американские военные провели испытания новой боевой техники MEHEL 2.0 (Mobile Expeditionary High Energy Laser — мобильный экспедиционный высокоэнергетический лазер). Это бронетранспортёр, оснащённый боевым лазером. Он предназначен для поражения небольших беспилотников противника, сообщает Defense Aerospace. В ходе испытаний MEHEL 2.0 успешно поразил несколько видов беспилотных летательных аппаратов, в том числе и коммерческих квадрокоптеров. Это очень актуально для армии США в связи с тем, что террористы на Ближнем Востоке уже несколько раз использовали любительские дроны для поражения живой силы и техники противника. Машина выполнена на базе броневика Stryker и оснащена боевым лазером мощностью пять киловатт, а также системой обнаружения и идентификации малых беспилотных летательных аппаратов. Кроме летательных аппаратов MEHEL 2.0 сможет дистанционно подорвать обнаруженные самодельные взрывные устройства. Американские военные хотят уже в начале 2018 года испытать новый боевой лазер мощностью 150 киловатт корабельного базирования, для этого им понадобится установить на судне более 26 000 аккумуляторных ячеек. Лазер планируют размещать на эсминцах с мощной силовой установкой или авианосцах.

America's M1 Abrams Tanks are Getting a Big Upgrade: 'Shields'

Kris Osborn Security, The Army has purchased an emerging technology for Abrams tanks, Bradleys and Strykers.  The Army has purchased an emerging technology for Abrams tanks, Bradleys and Strykers designed to give combat vehicles an opportunity identify, track and destroy approaching enemy rocket-propelled grenades in a matter of milliseconds, service officials said. Called Active Protection Systems, or APS, the technology uses sensors and radar, computer processing, fire control technology and interceptors to find, target and knock down or intercept incoming enemy fire such as RPGs and Anti-Tank Guided Missiles, or ATGMs. Systems of this kind have been in development for many years, however the rapid technological progress of enemy tank rounds, missiles and RPGs is leading the Army to more rapidly test and develop APS for its fleet of Abrams tanks.  “The Army is looking at a range of domestically produced and allied international solutions from companies participating in the Army's Modular Active Protection Systems (MAPS) program,” an Army official told Scout Warrior. The idea is to arm armored combat vehicles and tactical wheeled vehicles with additional protective technology to secure platforms and soldiers from enemy fire; vehicles slated for use of APS systems are infantry fighting vehicles such as Bradleys along with Stykers, Abrams tanks and even tactical vehicles such as transport trucks and the emerging Humvee replacement, the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle. DRS Technologies and Israeli-based Rafael Advanced Defense Systems are working with the U.S. Army to consider acquiring their recently combat-tested Trophy Active Protection System, a vehicle-mounted technology engineered to instantly locate and destroy incoming enemy fire. Army has purchased a number of Trophy APS systems, and a number of another kind of system as well, to evaluate them, including one called "Iron Fist," also from Israel, and another from a U.S.-based manufacturer called "Iron Curtain," service statements said.  The Army aims to put Iron Curtain on a Stryker, Iron Fist on a Bradley, and Trophy on an Abrams tank, to evaluate their effectiveness.  "The one that is farthest along in terms of installing it is ... Trophy on Abrams," Lt. Gen. John Murray, Deputy Chief of Staff, Army G-8, said in a written statement. "We're getting some pretty ... good results. It adds to the protection level of the tank. Trophy has an interesting capability, slew to cue. We're finding that we can incorporate that into the installation on the Abrams."  Read full article

EUCOM Commander Calls For Larger "Enduring Armored" Force To Deter Russia

The commander of U.S military forces in Europe told lawmakers Tuesday that he needs a larger combat force, including an armored division and increased naval power, to deter Russian military forces on the continent. Military.com's Matthew Cox reports that Gen. Curtis M. Scaparrotti, commander of U.S. European Command, testifying before the House Armed Service Committee, said: "We need a greater force there, I think, potentially in the land component," The general said he needs the "enablers of an armored division -- a fires brigade, an engineer brigade, air defense -- those kinds of systems in the numbers that I need there." Currently, the Army has one armored brigade combat team on a continuous rotation to Europe to bolster the Stryker and airborne infantry brigades stationed there permanently. "I am suggesting an additional division because ... I need armored and mechanized brigades," Scaparrotti said.   "The reason a division is so important is at that level you can then have the command and control, communications capability to integrate the different domains in the way we fight. And that division brings the enablers like appropriate artillery, engineers, air defense, etc. that fill out a proper defense." Scaparrotti said he could also use an "additional naval component on rotation through Europe to deter specifically with respect to anti-submarine warfare," an area Russia continues to modernize. "It would be wonderful to have a carrier support group with amphibious forces, more than I have now," he said. In addition to modernizing conventional ground, naval and air forces, Russia is refining the capability of its nuclear arsenal, Scaparrotti said. "One of the things that you see that is disturbing is the fact that they are using similar weapon systems that can either be conventional or nuclear, which then makes it difficult for us to clearly understand what they have employed," he said.   "And secondly, within their doctrine, they have made the statement openly again that they see a use for nuclear tactical capabilities within what we would consider a conventional conflict, which is very alarming." Rep. Mike Turner, a Republican from Ohio, asked Scaparrotti if he believes forward stationing an armored unit on a permanent basis rather than rotational would be helpful in deterring Russia. Though that is a U.S. Army decision, "I would prefer to have an enduring armored force in Europe," Scaparrotti said. ... Scaparrotti said the "real trigger" was Russia's 2014 annexation of Crimea. "The occupation of Ukraine, for instance, was an act that clearly set out that we have Russia as a competitor that is willing and did break international law," he said.   "And I think what you see in their activities today often is pushing whenever they can against the international norms. They still occupy Ukraine and Georgia with troops without invitation." Russia has also been behind cyber-attacks that are "criminal in some cases," such as the attack on the Ukranian power grid and attempts to impact elections in the United States, France and Germany, Scaparrotti said. "So I think if you look their actions, it tells us that we have a nation here that we need to be very sober about," he said. "We don't seek conflict with them; deterrence in fact has its mission to prevent conflict of war. But at this point, Russia has not been very responsive to the international community." *  *  * And the scaremongery, fake facts (Ukraine hack disavowed by CrowdStrike now, and power grabs will continue.

How America's M1 Abrams Tanks Will Defeat One of Its Greatest Foes

Kris Osborn Security, Rocket-propelled grenades.  Army Abrams tanks, Bradleys and Strykers are being outfitted with high-tech, vehicle-mounted systems which can detect, track and destroy approaching enemy RPG fire within milliseconds. The Army is fast-tracking an emerging technology for Abrams tanks designed to give combat vehicles an opportunity identify, track and destroy approaching enemy rocket-propelled grenades in a matter of milliseconds, service officials said.

General Dynamics Land Systems, maker of Abrams tanks, is working with the Army to better integrate APS into the subsystems of the Abrams tank, as opposed to merely using an applique system, Mike Peck, Business Development Manager, General Dynamics Land Systems, told Scout Warrior in an interview.  Peck said General Dynamics plans to test an APS system called Trophy on the Abrams tank next year.  Read full article
