The salient lesson from our recent military operations is that we’ve got to get combat identification (CID) right. The ability to identify and track all objects in the battlespace – friendly (blue), unfriendly (red), and civilian (grey) – remains the key to reducing fratricide and collateral damage and increasing the likelihood of successful operations. Emerging technologies in Force Tracking are bringing us closer to the possibility of achieving local/ soldier-level, theater/ commander-level, and global combat identification and situational awareness, even in joint and coalition operations.

The opportunities are many, but the challenges are daunting. This conference is designed to demystify CID and Force Tracking and to tell you where OSD and the Services are headed, and what systems and technology capabilities they will need. What are the individual Service needs in combat identification and force tracking? What role is FBCB2 playing in making Blue Force Tracking a reality? What are the unique challenges and opportunities in coalitions operations? What are the unique challenges and opportunities for force tracking in space-based operations? How does Ground Combat Force Tracking differ? Airborne? Naval? What are the architectural problems and solutions? What technology opportunities exist in transceivers, RF tags, sensors, and communications?
