Setting new standards for sharing information on the battlefield

2iC : 30 May, 2014  (Company News)
2iC, through funding from the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory’s (Dstl) Centre for Defence Enterprise (CDE), has developed an innovative way of linking different systems in the battlefield arena. This proof of concept is intended to allow troops to reduce their kit burden, while also increasing tempo of operation and overall battlefield effectiveness.
Setting new standards for sharing information on the battlefield
Designed to coordinate distributed systems supplied by multiple vendors in challenging technical environments, 2iC software provides comprehensive, rapid and low-risk systems interoperability.
The success of this project also resulted in 2iC being contracted by the Ministry of Defence (MOD) to create the completely new Lean Services Architecture as part of the MOD Land Open Systems Architecture (LOSA) programme.
In the past it has been difficult to link and control the large number of different systems needed in the battle-space and share information intelligently between each of them. The LOSA programme aims to tackle this by enabling systems integration and interoperability.
Recently the interface specification of the Lean Services Architecture was published as an open standard using the Open Government Licence, which means that any party can now freely use this innovative technology. It is a demonstrable step towards achieving the Defence White Paper open standards objectives.
Graham Booth, CEO, 2iC says: “2iC has been able to connect and then coordinate previously standalone systems anywhere; whether on soldiers, vehicles and bases or distributed systems in the civil world. We believe that this, along with the availability of the open standard, could have significant benefits on future interoperability for both UK forces and allies.”
Jim Pennycook, Head of Operations, CDE says: “The creation of a new government licenced open standard that MOD will use as the backbone of the Lean Services Architecture is a very significant step and it is a fundamental change in the way MOD will integrate technology into capability.”
