History has shown time and again that military force with the best communication system likely prevails, reports Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.
Now, a new report reveals that the U.S. military is working on a “giant armed nervous system” that would connect everything in a battle, from ships at sea and jets overhead to the individual personal digital devices carried by soldiers.
It’s the Defense One site that described the plan as a “nervous system.”
“Leaders of the Air Force, Navy, Army and Marines are converging on a vision of the future military: connecting every asset on the global battlefield,” the report said. “That means everything from F-35 jets overhead to the destroyers on the sea to the armor of the tanks crawling over the land to the multiplying devices in every troops’ pockets. Every weapon, vehicle, and device connected, sharing data, constantly aware of the presence and state of every other node in a truly global network. The effect: an unimaginably large cephapoloidal nervous system armed with the world’s most sophisticated weaponry.”
The plan comes in the newest National Military Strategy from the Joint Chiefs of Staff, which, unlike earlier plans, was classified.
But at least two of the service chiefs have discussed the idea already.
“Standing before a sea of dark-blue uniforms at a September Air Force Association event in Maryland, Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein said he had ‘refined’ his plans for the Air Force after discussions with the joint chiefs ‘as part of the creation of the classified military strategy.'”
Defense One reported Goldfein explained: “Every Tesla car is connected to every other Tesla car. If a Tesla is headed down the road and hits a pothole, every Tesla that’s behind it that’s self-driving, it will avoid the pothole, immediately. If you’re driving the car, it automatically adjusts your shocks in case you hit it, too.”
He said: “What would the world look like if we connected what we have in that way? If we looked at the world through a lens of a network as opposed to individual platforms, electronic jamming shared immediately, avoided automatically? Every three minutes, a mobility aircraft takes off somewhere on the planet. Platforms are nodes in a network.”
