As conflicts continue – easing hostilities in the Middle East are offset by new ones arising in other geographic areas – Department of Defense (DoD) technology developments and innovation in unmanned aerial systems (UAS) and command and control (C2) are changing the way battle management decisions are communicated to units on the ground and on the move. While BMS are critical tools for military planners and commanders in the field, uncertainty around how the government will operate now that the 2013 fiscal year is over, has many program managers pulling back on important BMS projects. Current BMS capabilities have performed successfully without any significant shortfalls. As defense budgets tighten, research and development (R&D) on BMS improvements cannot afford to remain stagnant; it must stay in pace with the dynamic commercial technologies used by potential adversaries to stifle US C2 capabilities.

Battle management systems (BMS) are critical distribution points of information that serve as the eyes and ears of U.S. military operators. As conflicts continue – easing hostilities in the Middle East are offset by new ones arising in other geographic areas – Department of Defense (DoD) technology developments and innovation in unmanned aerial systems (UAS) and command and control (C2) are changing the way battle management decisions are communicated to units on the ground and on the move.
