Active Dismounted Combat ID

New Systems

Objective

The project will provide the Canadian Armed Forces with the capability to positively identify friendly dismounted soldiers, vehicles, aircraft and naval vessels using novel technologies such as, but not limited to infrared (IR) signatures.

Requirements

The project will leverage material and network technology to provide an enhanced friend or foe (IFF) identification capability, and will ideally be compatible with the systems of allied nations. The system should function in all light and weather conditions, focusing on night-time operations while limiting the probability of intercept, jamming and spoofing.
