BAE Systems has demonstrated how multiple unmanned air and land vehicles can pass information between themselves and their command centres, while allowing control of the vehicles to be passed between different command systems in real time.

BAE capability augmentation manager Andy Wright says in battlefield situations, being able to seamlessly pass control of unmanned vehicles between different stations is vitally important.

“In this kind of operation, it’s critical that the payload – in this case, vital surveillance and reconnaissance information – and that the tasking of an unmanned asset is transferred quickly and effectively between commanders on the battlefield,” he says.

The demonstration was part of BAE Systems’ Capability Augmentation Programme, the first in a series of trials that will lead to a live vehicle demonstration in November this year.

BAE’s Capability Augmentation Programme is managed by the company’s Strategic Capability Solutions team and pulls together technology developed across BAE’s business to create vital future capability for the armed forces.
