Abstract:

Thirteen years after Desert Storm, conduct of Time Critical Target TCT operations remains one of the most difficult challenges facing US military forces. While a variety of DoD and DARPA programs are addressing technologies to locate and identify TCTs, finding the target candidate is only one part of the problem. Success will only occur when we shorten the entire kill chain, and operate within the enemys maneuver timeline. The automated exchange and processing of battlefield information is critical to achieving viable decision timelines in this arena. The situation demands a secure, robust network backbone supporting automated decision aids designed to execute commanders guidance. Critical decision aids include the ability to monitor and exchange critical tactical information, to evaluate real-time intelligence and generate actionable Target Evidence Files and to re-assign en-route tactical and support assets to higher value tasks.
