The system hosts a suite of integrated air and missile defense capabilities that enables warfighters to manage a continuous C2 cycle, operating at the speed of the battlespace. Visualization is presented in a set of graphical displays with selectable features in 2D, 3D, and 4D. At the core of the product is a modern service oriented architecture, enabling sensors-to-shooter integration and interoperability with a wide range of tactical communications, sensors, weapons and existing legacy systems. The interoperability enabled by DIAMONDShield helps ensure C4ISR operations across services and coalition operations.
