The British Army is keen to pioneer an any-sensor to any-shooter kill chain across its force. The ambition is that it should not matter if an enemy is detected by an infanteer, reconnaissance vehicle crew, a helicopter, F35 or electronic warfare unit. They should be able to get the track data to something with the appropriate weapon system to engage.
The critical requirement in achieving this is a digital backbone across the force that allows data and communications to be moved between units. The British Army’s Morpheus System and related programmes are aiming to upgrade data-sharing capabilities throughout the Army. However, the concept of a unified information-sharing system is not new, and while pursuing future capabilities the Army would do well to integrate it into existing systems.
