Paper Abstract

The paper reviews future Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance (ISTAR) concepts being explored for the Canadian Army. These concepts build upon the realities of battle-space digitisation and the opportunities of a network-centric approach. The paper presents experimentation underway to flesh out and validate these concepts. The vision of the future ISTAR capability is driven by the information requirements to support a commander's decision- making in attaining mission effectiveness. The system environment is characterized by multi-user interaction in which the exchange of real-time information and collaborative work is the norm. This common environment is well suited to support the multifunctional complexity required by the different actors within the system and the diversity of the missions that they serve.
