Piecing Together the Future Battlefield with Mosaic Warfare

Philip Perconti, Ph.D., director at the U.S. Army Research Lab was interviewed by Photonics Media before the SPIE’s Defense and Commercial Sensing Conference.  Dr. Perconti explains, “IoBT is a collaborative research program with university and government partners designed to bring together multiple disciplines to understand, predict, adapt, and exploit the enormous collection of networked devices that are, and will be, available.”  The concept of “mosaic warfare” explains the need for information from digital networks as an exceptional piece of the command and control puzzle modern commanders face as they combine information from unmanned and manned systems in changing warfare scenarios.
