Soldiers will see the enemies of the United States "eyes" drone

Soldiers will see the enemies of the United States "eyes" droneDuring the exercises of the American Army, the Northrop Grumman HART reconnaissance system was successfully tested at the Daguay range. For the first time, the capabilities of various unmanned observation vehicles were combined into a complex that requires minimal participation by the soldier and dramatically increases his situational awareness.


The HART system automatically manages a variety of manned and unmanned aerial vehicles, their sensors and then, upon request, provides the infantryman with streaming video, photo data and other information. In other words, the entire diversity of aircraft from the “strategic” manned reconnaissance aircraft of the E-8 JSTARS to the light Raven UAV unites into a virtual network. There is no need for a soldier on the battlefield to take control of a UAV or sensors — all you have to do is send a request to HART from a laptop computer and in almost real time get all the information about, for example, enemy positions over the hill. HART gives the military a truly unique opportunity to create a three-dimensional picture of the battlefield, where any soldier can immediately take advantage of detailed information about any point in space. At the same time, HART supports up to 50 aircraft and processes up to 50 requests.

HART allows you not only to view live broadcast from an air reconnaissance platform, but also to quickly obtain the necessary geo-information, which will practically nullify the enemy’s advantage in knowing its territory. Surroundings, flanking, ambush will be almost impossible with respect to soldiers using HART. Of course, this requires air supremacy and the deployment of UAVs and manned reconnaissance aircraft.

During the exercise, HART software and hardware was able to autonomously control several tactical unmanned aviation systems, including UAVs Shadow, Raven, Hunter and Bat. HART is also able to work with large UAVs such as Global Hawk, Predator, X-47B and the unmanned Fire Scout helicopter. One of the main qualities of HART is that it does not depend on the platform and does not require any modifications to aircraft, UAV control stations or soldiers' computers. This allows you to deploy the system as soon as possible.

It is planned that the commanders of small units will be equipped with HART terminals. They will be able to get all the information from the UAV, which only the operator currently has. In addition, with the help of the terminal it will be possible to request monitoring of a certain area, while the commander does not need to worry about driving the drone - it will work autonomously. HART software is able to perform the basic functions of a scout: patrol a given area, detect suspicious objects, focus on them, monitor their movement.

The HART program solves one of the main problems of using small UAVs. The fact is that during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the military faced the problem of using compact UAVs like the Raven. Launched by hand, they often broke down, and soldiers tried to use them for continuous observation of the terrain (that is, in the role of a heavy Predator), which does not correspond to the purpose of these devices with a short duration of flight. As a result, drones were often not used or failed, and the soldiers tried to use the sensors of larger and more expensive aerial reconnaissance aircraft whenever possible. HART must remove from the commanders the "heavy burden" of operating and controlling the drone and allow them to fully concentrate on their main task.

    to scatter a couple of dozen inflatable women with Kalash and here you have a bunch of false goals that lead the NATO infantryman to disorientation repeat

    "... and then, upon request, provides the infantryman with streaming video ..."
    But will the foot soldier watch a movie? Particularly likely, the film show is interesting under fire.

      Yes, you can drop a couple of shells that disable electronics and then it will be like in the good old days who will see someone faster.

    at least they are working on it (it’s difficult to judge what kind of video stream goes there and how it looks informative or not

      I don’t know how yours are, but ours definitely work. http://www.vesti.ru/doc.html?id=337310
      Video is needed only when planning, monitoring and evaluating the results, respectively, should go to the headquarters, and from there to the soldiers in a pharmaceutical form. Video processing requires a huge amount of resources, including time. Well, the squad leader saw that the next hill was not a company, but a battalion, which made it easier for him.

    It remains only to get the encoded information to provide your request as well. The interception of information from the UAV is just around the corner. In general, in the future such a technique will be controlled mentally, like all robotics, such experiments are already underway. We, as always, are behind the entire planet, although the Russians possess some knowledge in this area.

    I think technically it’s both in strength and in our design bureaus
    it’s bad that the military has no idea why and why they need it

    I do not agree with the “Jung” all this has not yet been tested and it is too early to judge whether such a presentation of information to a simple fighter is necessary. And to develop and practice new methods of warfare is necessary. It moves military science forward, and it turns out that we are always catching up. We do not look in perspective

    They can be loved (Americans), they can be hated, but they need to be admired. They move forward, take care of their soldiers. Pour shit on the other, the simplest thing, but they need to learn and overtake them. In his time, Stalin did so.
