Battlefield Internet

The Army will introduce a VICTORY system to streamline the networking of our combat vehicles:

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 C4ISRsystems including targeting, weapons and electronic attack applications.

A secure tactical internet will allow the Army to operate more effectively. As long as it is hack-proof, this will be a huge asset.
