Paper Abstract

As proven in Desert Storm, the confusion of a rapidly moving air-land battle involving multinational forces is a situational awareness (SA) nightmare. Current methods of communication require traversing layers of networking or searching for frequencies to reach users in different outfits, which is time consuming and frustrating. The digital data link increases realtime SA in the digitized battlefield by providing mechanized platoons with a wireless horizontal local area network SA data passing capability. This increased real-time SA data acts both as a force multiplier and helps reduce the incidence of fratricide.
