27 Nov 2013 CDE enduring challenge competition briefings

  1. 1. Room 2 Enduring Challenge Competition (Open Competition) Centre for Defence Enterprise 29 November 2013 © Crown copyright 2013 Dstl
  2. 2. Command, Control, Information and Intelligence (C2I2) C2I2 Research Programme vision is: a collaborative partnership with the Defence & Security community, that delivers exploitable S&T for realisable future capabilities and operations. 29 November 2013 © Crown copyright 2013 Dstl
  3. 3. C2I2 Programme thrusts INFORMATION & INTELLIGENCE COMMAND & CONTROL SPACE TECHNOLOGIES • Future Int Environment • Int / Info Processing •Met / GEOINT •Imagery / MASINT Processing • Future Concepts •IM/IX • C2 Agility • Human in C2 •Space Situational Awareness • Affordable Revolutionary Space C4ISR © Crown Copyright Dstl 2011
  4. 4. Short term • Improvement in the efficient (timeliness), effective (quality) and economic (cost) production of I2 • Development and assessment of C2 & IS concepts: role of modern technologies and understanding / options to support human component of C2 • Understanding of the space environment, threats, SpSA and SBS capabilities to support the Strategic Defence and Security Review 2015 options on “space technologies” © Crown Copyright Dstl 2011
  5. 5. Medium term • Structured and unstructured information being routinely exploited • Improved understanding of pattern-of-life • Delivery of targeted relevant information to deployed user • Increased focus on early entry / contingent ops, reach-back for C2, C2 agility - increased resilience in C2 • Enduring space weather and SpSA capability and niche indigenous affordable space capabilities being matured © Crown Copyright Dstl 2011
  6. 6. Longer term • Predictive intelligence – estimate intent of actors and develop threat analysis • Cognition, sense making, problem solving, collaborative working applied to C2 • Space will be a realistic and affordable option for reducing the cost of current military capability / providing new indigenous capability © Crown Copyright Dstl 2011
  7. 7. CDE enduring challenges • Situational Awareness (sensors, precision navigation and timing, reduced GPS dependability, persistent surveillance, status of digital systems) • Data (cyber, information, big data, management and processing, sense-making, visualisation, delivery, interoperability) • Lower cost of ownership (platforms, equipment, facilities) • New capabilities (challenging current convention, disruptive) © Crown Copyright Dstl 2011
  8. 8. Integrated Sensing 29 November 2013 © Crown copyright 2013 Dstl
  9. 9. Programme vision Wherever UK Armed Forces are, whatever their mission, S&T has sensing capability to enable situational awareness of land, air and sea, when they need it to support appropriate military effects. By integration of a broad range of sensor technologies, UK Armed Forces achieve full coverage of the battlefield. Exploitation and development of affordable sensor technology will enable the UK to meet evolving threats and maintain UK Sovereign capability and freedom of action. 29 November 2013 © Crown copyright 2013 Dstl UNCLASSIFIED
  10. 10. Scope – Integrated Sensing 29 November 2013 © Crown copyright 2013 Dstl UNCLASSIFIED
  11. 11. Programme drivers (1) • Policy / doctrine trends – need to generate evidence base capable of informing next SDSR (policy and strategy formulation, capability/force structure design) – Technology White Paper drives delivery – managed reduction in manned ISTAR platforms and single function collectors, replaced by introduction of multi-role platforms to provide tactical flexibility (SDSR 10) – future battlespace „congested, cluttered, contested, and connected‟ * – unpredictable adversaries and threats, whose behaviour will be hard to discern and ambiguous * – tighter integration of capability and a greater adaptation needed to overcome future adversaries * * Future Character of Conflict (FCOC) 2010 29 November 2013 © Crown copyright 2013 Dstl UNCLASSIFIED
  12. 12. Programme drivers (2) • Economic pressure – limited investment in capability change, thus S&T needs to focus on areas that offer defence significant advantage in the near, medium and long term. – continued maintenance/upgrade of the sensor inventory is economically unsustainable – traditional sensor development routes for land, sea and air are also economically unsustainable – sophisticated technology is expensive and takes time to develop • Technology trends – Technology now enabling multi-band, multi-function operation from one sensor – Networked sensor operation and effective real-time fusion now becoming feasible 29 November 2013 © Crown copyright 2013 Dstl UNCLASSIFIED
  13. 13. Programme workstreams Multi-Function & Networked Sensors Novel Sensors Electronic Surveillance 23% 27% Core Technology 29 November 2013 © Crown copyright 2013 Dstl 15% 35%
  14. 14. CDE enduring challenges • Situational Awareness (sensors, precision navigation and timing, reduced GPS dependability, persistent surveillance, status of digital systems) • Protection (personnel, platforms, facilities, digital systems, materials) • Lower cost of ownership (platforms, equipment, facilities) • New capabilities (challenging current convention, disruptive) 29 November 2013 © Crown copyright 2013 Dstl
  15. 15. CDE themed competition February 2014 • Novel electro-optic infrared technology – Key attributes will be low size, weight and power, and often, low cost – Compact technologies and multifunction components are envisaged as being necessary – Novel optical configurations – True phased array technologies, optical synthetic aperture or direct holographic imaging – Very sensitive imagers 29 November 2013 © Crown copyright 2013 Dstl
  16. 16. CDE Enduring Challenge Communications Assured Information Infrastructure 29 November 2013 © Crown copyright 2013 Dstl
  17. 17. Assured Information Infrastructure • Objective – provide S&T support to MOD to enable the realisation of a continuously evolving single, logical, reconfigurable, resilient information infrastructure across UK and deployed, fixed and mobile elements 29 November 2013 © Crown copyright 2013 Dstl UNCLASSIFIED
  18. 18. Assured Information Infrastructure • the right information, to the right person, in the right form, at the right time, to support the best decision to initiate effective action 29 November 2013 © Crown copyright 2013 Dstl UNCLASSIFIED
  19. 19. The enduring challenge • How can MOD provide cost-effective, robust communications? – reduced size, weight, power – adaptable networks – security and assurance – resilience – interoperability – use of commercial technologies 29 November 2013 © Crown copyright 2013 Dstl UNCLASSIFIED
  20. 20. What we want • Innovation • Novel forms of communication • Boundaries between networks • Mobile communications • Consideration of human factors 29 November 2013 © Crown copyright 2013 Dstl UNCLASSIFIED
  21. 21. What we don’t want • Solutions that offer no significant defence and security benefit • Technology watch / horizon scanning • Paper-based studies, roadmaps or technology prediction • New encryption algorithms 29 November 2013 © Crown copyright 2013 Dstl UNCLASSIFIED
