Multiple reality (MR) and artificial intelligence (AI) to influence survivability of command and control

May 28, 2020
The question remains, how does a large staff maintain the level of cohesion needed to plan and supervise the execution of complex military operations?

WASHINGTON – With ever-expanding human networks, the proliferation of cyber attacks, and the rise of artificial intelligence (AI), world instability is increasing. Real Clear Defense reports. Continue reading original article

The Military & Aerospace Electronics take:

28 May 2020 -- In this world, the U.S. Department of Defense will need a more robust and flexible command and control platform that can facilitate effective and collaborative communications, while providing a high degree of survivability through redundancy and dispersion.

Maintaining fidelity and continuity across a disbursed staff, however, can be extremely challenging. Multiple reality (MR) -- also called mixed reality -- may provide staffs the flexibility in command and control and survivability needed in the future, allowing them to be widely disbursed while operating as highly cohesive entities. MR blends the real-world environment and digitally created content.

The world has already entered a phase in its history where various people, groups, and organizations have a greater ability to interact than ever before. With these increased levels of interaction, human networks and ideas rapidly expand, subsequently acting to create new levels of prosperity as well as new tensions and conflicts.
