In the contemporary world, characterized by sophisticated battlefield warfare as well as dense urban warfare, information and intelligence become a major resource. When the main threat is terrorism, a-symetric warfare, the Terrain Dominance concept is vital to any modern and advanced army.
Terrain Dominance is an operational intelligence concept based on advanced technology aimed at a complete intelligence command within a defined area for a prolonged period of time. It is intended for achieving superiority at a certain territory, whether it is a border area or combat area. It relates to places where a complete knowledge is required continuousely regarding what happens in a certain area.
Terrain Dominance is achieved through a multi-layered approach covering vast territories using C4I – Command, Control, Communications, Computers, & Intelligence. This means the use of a variety of advanced sensors mounted on different platforms – on the ground, sea, air and space – in order to supply threat alerts and offer wasy to combat the threats.
The sensor systems include visual, radar, acoustic, seismic, electro-magnetic and other sensors, they update the military units on real time and enable the detection and surveillance of people or vehicle movement, early warning regarding aerial threats and UAVs for detection and identification missions.
Among the systems:
- Motion Control systems
- Electro-optics and Surveillance
- Components and Electronics
- Navigation system via satellites
- Power Control systems
- Rugged Systems
- Applications and softwares
- Inertial sensors
- Cyber Defense systems
- Real-time operating systems
These and other technologies supply data and enable a thorogh and comprehensive analysis regarding a defined territory.
The sharing and fusion of the products create the continuous intelligence situation report – Terrain Dominance.
The analysis of data for operational insights is based on the identification of patterns and changes in the defined territory – changes in the ground, people’s behavior, land cover etc.
Military technologies can be used not only for military applications. Many commercial and industrial companies are all around the military technology industry, whether in manufacturing the technology or by actually using it.
The upcoming iHLS Conference on C4I Technologies for Terrain and Urban Dominance on December 20th, 2016 will focus on all these aspects and on the latest innovations in this field.
