Objective

The Canadian Armed Forces Tactical Combat Identification project will improve the ability of tactical commanders to maintain battle space awareness to differentiate between their own, allied, and adversarial forces.

Requirements

Canadian Army land platforms require automated, cooperative target identification capability to enable timely and accurate identification of friendly forces out to the maximum engagement range of weapons in order to minimize fratricide on a non-linear, conventional, joint and/or coalition battlefield. It is highly desirable that this capability be compatible with existing and future aircraft and dismounted soldier identification systems.
