3 things to know about the Army Warfighting Experiment
For the past 10 years, the Army Warfighting Experiment (AWE) has brought together industry and military experts to test new technology and improve Army capability. Here are three things to know about it.
1. Warfighting of the future
Now in its 10th year, the Army Warfighting Experiment is an opportunity each year to try out industry’s newest and most innovative technology.
This year, AWE 2020 is designed to help the Army identify how it can increase awareness of battlefield surroundings, improve communication when on the move, make deployments more effective, and increase survival of personnel in combat.
2. Direct feedback to industry
Put in the hands of its soldiers, the Army can assess the tech and give invaluable feedback to its inventors. This community of partners between military, academics and industry, work together to solve problems.
Through collaborating with industry and academic partners in this way, the experiment supports the Army’s ability to modernise, fight and operate differently.
Artificial Intelligence, Cyber Intelligence, Un-crewed Vehicles and Remotely Piloted air technology are among the key areas of development.
By exploring and modernising in these areas, the Army is ensuring that it can adapt to emerging threats.
