Abstract:

Just the recognition that knowledge is power is not sufficient to utilize available information and transform this information into the powerful asset we call knowledge. With a continuous increase in the complexity and tempo on the modern battlefield new demands are placed on rapid and precise information dissemination. The volume of information available to the user becomes larger while the time necessary to correctly interpret and understand this information becomes prohibitively smaller. Cognitive processing of information at the receiving nodes is a potential solution to this information overflow problem. These nodes we will call Intelligent Nodes Dawidowicz, 2001. This paper will introduce the architecture of an Intelligent Node and will demonstrate its hierarchical scalability across all echelons and Battlefield Functional Areas. This technology is also directly applicable to the Objective Force and Future Combat Systems.
