The U.S. Air Force plans to soon demonstrate a newÂ concept designed to help the military manage battlefield assets for multi-domain operations, Fedscoop reported Monday.Â TheÂ Advanced Battle Management System’s firstÂ demonstration is scheduled to take place in about a month, the report noted.
âWeâll connect F-22s, F-35s, SpaceX Starlink satellites, Navy ships, Army soldiers,â Will Roper, USAF assistant secretary and 2019 Wash100 Award winner, said at an event with the Center for a New American Security.
The MDO approach involves integrated operation between military units and assets inÂ air,Â land, sea, space and cyber domains. Roper said USAF will use cloud to drive the system that builds on existing commercial internet technology.
“Weâre designing this with champions of commercial internet technology who are willing, just out of patriotism, to be contracted designers, to make sure that we donât get outside of what worked for the internet,” the assistant secretary added.
