We used a highly capable, high altitude U-2 as a vital communications and processing node, connecting a web of systems across multiple domains and enabling complete battlespace awareness
This greater battlespace awareness
is conceived as a comprehensive and complete view in space and time; using assured, secure and responsive information; and resulting in the capability to predict enemy intentions and actions.
Under terms of the contract, the TASC team will work on several key mission areas of the Space Based Infrared System (SBIRS) program, the nation's missile early warning and defense system, including missile defense, battlespace awareness
and technical intelligence.
Afloat (CVN, LHA, LHD, LCC) or Ashore (Maritime Headquarters /Maritime Operations Center), DCGS-N's tools are critical to the Operational Commander's battlespace awareness
and Net-Centric operations.
Through the planning and execution of space control, support, and force enhancement operations, the JFCC SPACE commander produces effects for combatant commanders, such as providing positioning, navigation, and timing for military and civil use; providing communications to remote locations beyond the line of sight of terrestrial communication systems; and supporting battlespace awareness
and characterization through space systems.
Our military space systems are absolutely indispensable to national decision makers and combatant commanders, from real time, all weather satellite navigation provided by the Global Positioning System; critical linkages provided by the Defense Satellite Communication System (DSCS) and Milstar as well; around-the-clock missile warning provided by our vigilant fleet of Defense Support Program satellites; weather forecasts enabled by the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program satellites; to the superior intelligence and battlespace awareness
provided by our national systems.
The software supports Department of Defense efforts to implement "network-centric warfare," which uses information technology to link sensors, soldiers, and decisionmakers, thus improving battlespace awareness
, knowledge sharing, and performance.
Joint Vision 2020 describes how information will enable dominant battlespace awareness
as part of information superiority.
The author outlines these changes in a concept called weather, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (WiSR), a term first used by the Air Staff to describe the total integration of natural and man-made environments for predictive battlespace awareness
10 can provide insight to an adversary's capabilities and transform intelligence for the Preparation of Battlespace (PBS) into Predictive Battlespace Awareness
As such, it provides real-time battlespace awareness
, radar threat warning and alert, an ES capability with a data recording facility and real-time sensor-to-shooter target geo-location data.
The DBC program's ultimat objective is to extend visualization and display technologies and integrate them with emerging command control, communication, computers intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance concepts to evolve a system that provides dominant battlespace awareness
