Customer: The Army Research Laboratory (ARL) Battlefield Information Processing Branch.
The goal of this effort was to combine existing and newly developed technologies to demonstrate an integrated hardware and software capability to increase the mission effectiveness and survivability for dismounted infantry by improving
software and hardware involved with Command, Control, Communications, Computers, and Intelligence (C4I). Specifically, the effort was to investigate the effectiveness of fusing Local Squad Asset information with global Unit of Employment
Asset information and then publishing this fused picture throughout the Unit of Engagement. The Warrior Edge Squad would be fully equipped with end-user-stations, a local fusion station on a surrogate “mule” platform, and
a combination of one or more organic UGVs or OAVs. The UofA Platoon Leader would be equipped with a Warrior Edge End-User-Station with additional capabilities that are specific to a Platoon Leader.
