Overview of ttcp land tp 2

TP-2: Land Systems Integration

Provides a focus and mechanism to facilitate collaborative programs of work within the land systems and SoS integration domain, aimed at maintaining/enhancing the land force capability

Focus Areas: Land Force Networking, Protection and Adaptability.

Overview of TTCP Land TP-2


Land systems integration a sos approach
Land Systems Integration: a SoS Approach

Definition of terms:

Integration: working seamlessly together; forming into one whole

Adaptation: Improving the fit with the environment

System of Systems (SoS): A complex meta-system exhibiting dynamic and emergent

behaviours. The nature of the SoS problem space requires

consideration of the technical, human/social, managerial,

organizational, policy and political dimensions.

consideration of the technical, human/social, managerial,

organizational, policy and political dimensions.

There are tradeoffs to making a SoS more integrated, robust, resilient, flexible, responsive or agile (cost in efficiency + cost of adaptation). Yet when considering the long term costs of disruptions, risks are better managed and overall effectiveness is improved.

Land Systems Integration: a SoS Approach

Land environment is composed of hundreds of nodes having a complex web of

Interdependencies.

The individual war-fighting elements will have been produced by:

- a large number of separate projects;

- supplied by a range of manufacturers and contractors;

- focussing at optimizing the individual capabilities;

- integration into a wider force is a secondary consideration.

Other contributing factors to the integration challenge includes:

- increasing complexity of individual land systems;

- impact of COTS/MOTS acquisition processes;

- acquisition in small, separate sub-components over a decade;

- ongoing mixture of new and legacy capabilities.

SoS integration can be addressed by considering systems integration as a non-

linear space defined by 3 dimensions: system characteristics, sub-systems, scale.

Land Systems Integration: a SoS Approach

Systems integration trade space defined by the integration across the SI

characteristics, conceptual sub-systems and the scale of the SoS.


Soldier – Vehicle Integration Study- Integrated Soldier – Vehicle Protection- Networked Soldier – Vehicle Integration

Objective of the study:

Collect information on integration issues among the TTCP nations related

to protection and networking between the dismounted soldiers and the vehicles.

Methodology:

Interviews were conducted late spring/early summer 2010 among the military

and scientific communities of experts by 4 nations.

In Canada, the following organisations were invited to participate:

- DLR-3, DLR-5

- DSSPM

- DLCSM

- DAVM5-3

- DSTL 2, DSTL-5

- DRDC Valcartier, Suffield, Toronto, Ottawa

  • Integration of dismounted soldiers with infantry transport vehicles (10)

  • Integration of dismounted soldiers with other combat/support vehicles (9)

  • Integration of dismounted soldiers with vehicle controlled UAVs/UGVs and

  • sensor arrays (1)

Land sil a tp 2 vision in development
Land SIL: a TP-2 Vision in development

Objectives:

1- Identify activities, existing capabilities and best practices in TTCP nations;

2- Propose a vision for a distributed (i.e. multi-national, multi-sites, multi-laboratories)

and multidisciplinary (sensors, weapons, protection, C4ISR, human factors, etc.)

land system integration capacity exploiting a combination of virtual, simulated and

real assets.


Conclusions
Conclusions

There is considerable challenges (100 were identified by our study) to be

addressed in the integration of soldier-vehicle protection and networking.

There is a substantial need for a SoS approach to achieve protection

and networked soldier-vehicle integration that is adaptable.

There is a need to develop tools and analysis techniques to support

evaluation of alternative concepts and designs in a SoS context.

An approach proposed by TP-2 is the development of a multinational

and distributed System Integration Laboratory for land systems.
