A U.S. Army Air Defense Airspace Management team will test a new software for the air missile defense workstation and forward area air defense system during a two-week warfighter assessment exercise.
Participants of the Army Warfighter Assessment 17.1 will work to gather input from soldiers on the performance of new warfighting capacities such as the “Leader Effects Tool Suite and Localized Warn to the Edge Capability” software, the service branch said Thursday.
ADAM will use the LETs Warn system during the event to sent air strike warnings to soldiers via the Joint Battlefield Command Platform/Joint Capabilities Release systems or the Nett Warrior system.
Jonathan Janiszewski, an ADAM officer, said the systems will look to inform an exact individual that will be impacted by a threat to help troops take cover, get inside shelters and react accordingly.
AWA 17.1 will also tackle the use of the Rapid Fabrication mobile container that carrier an array of 3-D printers to fabricate plastic parts on-demand as well as the Leader/Follower system that will program a vehicle to automatically follow a lead unit on convoy operations.
