Us Army to Present at SMi’s Future Armoured Vehicles Situational Awareness 2019 After New Technical Developments to Fire Detection Sensors Have Been Released

SMi reports: After the announcement of the US Army’s new AI-enabled Hostile Fire Detection Sensors, they will be presenting at the 4th annual Future Armoured Vehicles Situational Awareness conference taking place on 3rd-4th April 2019.

London, United Kingdom, January 23, 2019 --( Future land forces must prepare for high intensity conflict, where information superiority and surveillance capabilities may be challenged by an innovative enemy. To maintain a competitive edge, it is therefore imperative for defence forces to intimately understand the capabilities available, to enhance both combat effectiveness and survivability of the vehicle.

For this reason, the US Army are focusing on enhancing both combat effectiveness and connectivity of vehicles through the engineering of their new AI-enabled Hostile Fire Detection sensors for its fleet of armoured combat vehicles to identify, track and target incoming enemy small arms fire.

Even if the threat isn't immediate to heavily armoured combat vehicles, such as the Stryker, there is an increasing necessity to stay ahead of near peer adversaries by quickly finding the location of the incoming enemy small arms attacks. The sensors being developed include infrared sensors, which will identify and trace the heat signatures from enemy small arms fire.

As the Future Armoured Vehicles Situational Awareness conference returns to London in April this year, delegates will have exclusive insight into the latest development from the US Army and how they are improving situational awareness across their platforms.
