Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) has introduced additional  capabilities for its hC2 Battlefield Management System (BMS) – with new command, control, communications, computers and intelligence (C4I) modules designed to bring increased communications and situational awareness to commanders on the battlefield.

Key capabilities of the new C4I modules include faster, more accurate troop and target information from radio GPS to share across echelons, increasing force safety and mission effectiveness. Additionally, a Common Operational Picture Logging feature now provides commanders in-depth text records which can be filtered and sorted for instant review and future analysis.

The new modules also ingest sensor information from a variety of platforms on the battlefield, helping to provide a concise common operational picture from multiple sources to assist with rapid intelligence sharing and decision making. The sensor integration modules use the latest video processing and data analytics, while accessing multiple data streams to alert operators to real-time critical intelligence.

“Coordination and collaboration on the battlefield are critical tenants of any coalition mission,” said Chris Young, president, Harris Communication Systems. “The hC2 Battlefield Management System, with its new C4I modules, ensures coalition forces have an interoperable battlefield picture that enhances coordination, increases collaboration and helps keep friendly forces safe during the mission.”
