Thanks, Mike. What I would like to do it to give a quick explanation of technology roadmapping, describe our experiences at Industry Canada with Technology Roadmaps, provide an introduction to the Soldier Systems Technology Roadmap, and the governance structure, particularly the Steering Committee and the Technical Sub-Committees.
The essence of ADO is the ability to conduct coordinated, interdependent, full-spectrum actions by widely dispersed teams across the moral, physical, and information planes. ADO calls for networked and integrated land manoeuvre forces alternatively dispersing and aggregating over extended distances. Dispersion, in this context, is in relation to time, space, and purpose. Not a “new” concept but one that is evolving rapidly because of technological enablers , and that still remains limited by the human dimension.
1995 TB -> PPA IPCE + approved IPCE TD as Defn Phase 1 IPCE & funded for $16M $13M Contract awarded to CDC to build prototype, then 30 sets Excellent • QFD - Quality Function Deployment - process EMC/EMI - Electromagnetic Compatibility/Electromagnetic Interference Plan Systems Engineering Plan But - Quite frankly Design sucked - HF were ignored Crown bailed after $7M downrange & not enough funds remained for even 1 prototype Took a step back and asked - Different from Allies How do soldiers do their jobs - what are their information requirements - and why would technology help them, i.e. Why technology not What technology IPCE TD failure led directly to World-class R&D -> SIREQ TD -> $13M (SIREQ lesson learned) -> Soldier Integrated Headwear System - SIHS TD -> $6M Chem – Bio Plus - CB+ TD -> $6M (Day-use uniform) Army Soldier Advanced Power (ASAP) TD->$8M (Sources / Harvesting / Management) Dr Bob Walker -> excellent R&D support to acquisition -> Tracking technology maturity is essential -> ISSP SA on proj team -> When technology not what -> R&D Roadmap
This radar map, illustrate the key technologies areas which will influence the soldier capabilities in the 2015 and 2025 timeframe. Some of these technologies are still in their infancy but are expected to become mature over this time horizon. These include smart materials and weapons, micro-technologies, small networked sensors, advanced medical treatments, as well as protection and communications systems that are cheaper, lighter, smaller, and highly energy efficient. These technologies combined with ubiquitous computing and artificial intelligence could lead to key advances, such as all pervasive sensing, robotics, autonomous vehicles and networks, and real-time language translators. Seamless command and control, shared situation awareness and permanent, mobile connection to the future defence networks is also anticipated. In 2025, nano-devices such as nanobots would also likely emerge and could be used for military applications. Other innovations such as brain-computer interfaces, highly adaptive clothing and camouflage will also emerge.
Overview of the Project, i.e. what Canada calls a soldier system Clearly a System of Systems Representative Items only Each soldier system is made up of PAN & number of sub-systems Point out example sub-systems Depending on maturity and availability of COTS MOTS technology & components, would only pursue a sub-set for Cycle 1 Next slide: In other words, field only technology available for each cycle
Concept of Implementation Cyclical Approach endorsed by PWGSC, TB Analysts and SPAC Performance-based, Best Value Competitive Contracts for “Systems Integrator” Maximize available COTS and MOTS components & systems available in NATO & Industry Progressive “Builds” to achieve full capability, each Build fielding available technology Cyclical approach critical so we can use feedback from field trials & user training, and TTP lessons learned in the design of the next cycle
In terms of how the global market breaks-down by submarkets corresponding to 5 key solder modernization capability domains identified by NATO, Visiongain’s estimates and forecasts suggest that C4I is the lead submarket. Beyond C4I, innovators with capabilities relevant to the remaining 4 domains may also be able to pursue significant future opportunities. Over the next 10 years, future sales appear relatively closely distributed between: Lethality, Mobility, Sustainability (which here includes energy related products like batteries), and Survivability.
