One of the most critical challenges faced in a congested and contested battlefield is the ability to connect and securely communicate across all domains. Additionally, the battlespace has multiple diverse and dynamic data sets with which to interoperate and base decisions on, while data consumption and demand continues to grow. For multi-domain operations it is about having the right information at the right time, enabling the execution of operations with well integrated and resilient capabilities.
To respond to these challenges we are striving for a more integrated, more digitalised, more collaborative and agile operational environment across all domains. Our roadmap for developing new technologies and solutions is focused on and evolves to meet the needs of our customers.
The Multi-Domain Combat Cloud is about enhancing defence power through information superiority.
It is a decentralised, cyber-resilient, collaborative information network across air, land, sea, space and cyber domains using cloud-based technologies. It connects nodes for all forces across all domains, enabling real-time intelligence and exchanges. The Multi-Domain Combat Cloud increases effectiveness by providing the right information, at the right asset, at the right time.
The Multi-Domain Combat Cloud means cross-domain integration of heterogeneous platforms, including existing legacy platforms in its evolutionary path.
The Multi-Domain Combat Cloud, based on its system-of systems design, will be the strategic game changer for future warfighting, providing a holistic response to threats. It is a step-by-step approach utilising existing elements and solutions to bridge towards future solutions by combining domains from cloud to edge.
The Multi-Domain Combat Cloud enables collaborative combat with manned and unmanned teaming assets across all domains under human supervision, making military operations more efficient and effective.
During mission execution, we ensure higher flexibility and dynamic reactivity to real-time situational change.
The Multi-Domain Combat Cloud enables digitalised, collaborative operations for agile combat across all domains offering:
The OODA Loop is a situational awareness theory emphasising different phases of the mission cycle: Observe, Orient, Decide and Act.
The Multi-Domain Combat Cloud enables faster loops of the OODA cycle and dramatically improves mission efficiency by impacting each phase of the mission cycle.
