ISR helps to gain situational awareness, battlespace understanding and supports decision-making processes. Modern warfare is undergoing a profound transformation as Emerging and Disruptive Technologies (EDT) are providing great opportunities for the way we think, plan, organize and manage operations. Implementing Multi-Domain Operations (MDO) will require new Joint All Domain Command and Control (JAD-C2) structures and systems to generate effects in all domains simultaneously using a shared information cloud or combat cloud. The most effective way to achieve the transformation of ISR through the combination of Big Data management and other EDT is to enhance data-fused analysis, timely information sharing, actionable intelligence, and faster decision-making processes. This will ensure information superiority in both conventional and non-conventional warfare.
Our SME supports the development of new ISR technologies and capabilities, and their integration as key enablers to NATO Air & Space Power projection. He also promotes and influences NATO ISR doctrine, standardization, and operational concepts.
