Given the ever-increasing amount of data and information being generated, who will process it quicker might run through the OODA Loop quicker than the adversary and therefore gain an undisputable advantage. If energy is the digital blood, computing provides you with the digital muscles and the agility to face the enemy.
04.A Cyber Attack
Crack certain types of encryption in microseconds. Overcome cyber defences to disrupt or destroy others’ computer systems.
Quantum computing, hacker
04.B Assure Reception of Signals
Assure reception of signals by optimal dynamic use of electromagnetic spectrum to avoid electronic attack, avoid detection, maximise available bandwidth and send data even in congested/contested environments.
Electronic warfare Counter Measures
04.C Precision Control Swarms
Precision control of swarms of hypersonic vehicles/missiles in-flight.
Simultaneous control, instant
04.D Achieve Trust
Achieve trust in who you’re dealing with and the information they exchange with you in zero trust environments, for example to exchange money or control check points.
Biometrics, blockchain, database
04.E Train in Virtual
Deploy realistic simulated virtual/augmented reality training environments to prepare soldiers in real-time for mission tasks by incorporating input from live sensor feeds into hyper-realistic physics and human behaviour models.
Virtual/augmented reality, game
04.F Course of Action Analysis
Simulate billions of potential courses of action and identify the most optimal to meet given objectives within microseconds and adapt recommendations to real-time sensor information.
Wargame, decision support
04.G Global Intelligence Picture
Conduct continuous global intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition and reconnaissance in space, air, land, maritime (surface and underwater) domains and fuse data into one coherent rich intelligence system, with high signal-to-noise ratio.
Loitering UAS, big data
04.H Situational awareness
Know where every single individual and item of inventory that belongs to your organization is exactly at any time.
Asset/people tracking, real-time
04.I Complex Chem/Bio Analysis
Instantly analyse and identify chemical or biological substances remotely or using small, lightweight, low power modules installed in hand-carried or unmanned systems.
CBRN, stand-off detection
