When designing the C4ISR integrated vehicle, ADS understood that defense budgets are tight nowadays.
Despite budgets, ADS wanted a vehicle that could withstand any threats in a modern battlefield without sacrificing safety.
“Tactical Vehicle communication and sensors technology has been neglected for years in anticipation of new vehicle delivery,” ADS said in a statement.
According to SoldierSystems.net:
For those unfamiliar, C4ISR includes Command, Control, Communications, Computers as well as Intelligence, Surveillance and and Reconnaissance capabilities. It’s not that this is a dedicated command and control vehicle or even a scout vehicle but rather, ADS recognizes that over the last 10 years, there has been a boom in the deployment of new C4ISR technologies. The real hurdle is delivering this disparate information to the end user and then, making sense of all of it.
Everything here is Commercial-Off-The-Shelf. It’s just been configured in such a way that the whole is greater than the sum of its individual components.
