Making Mobility a Battlefield Reality
September 01, 2014
FULL TEXT A U.S. defense agency promotes the pending proliferation of mobile devices. THE WIDESPREAD USE of mobile devices on the battlefield, which may have seemed an improbability just a few years ago, may become an actuality within the next few. A recently released strategy document supports that pending reality, which is expected to increase situational awareness, improve operational effectiveness and enhance the operational advantage for U.S. forces. "I don't think it's going to be 10 or 15 years before these devices are going to be the preponderance of what we see on the battlefield. We're probably three to four years away from that," says John Hickey, Defense Department mobility portfolio manager, Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA).
