"KWESST is a key enabler of rapid digitization at the tactical edge as NATO forces everywhere ready themselves for the modern battlefield," said David Luxton, Executive Chairman of KWESST. "This entails integration of sensors and soldiers into the TAK (or any) battlefield management system for shared real-time situational awareness among and between partner forces at the level of the dismounted and mounted soldier, including video feeds from drones and other Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) assets."

Other featured capabilities will be KWESST's modern Tactical Digital Fires System (TDFS) that extends digitization to indirect fire weapons like mortars for rapid deployment and precision fire, with no modification to weapons or ammunition, all integrated into TAK, as KWESST has done for the U.S. Marine Corps.

Modern warfare also requires small, mobile distributed command centres for survivability vs. large, fixed headquarters of the kind seen in the Afghanistan conflict. KWESST's Command and Control on The Move (C2OTM) software-based solution can quickly integrate disparate third-party communications equipment into a common system on the fly, as recently demonstrated to the Canadian Armed Forces. KWESST has various initiatives like this in play now with NATO nations.

Survivability on the modern battlefield also requires Electronic Warfare PhantomTM (EW) at the tactical edge. KWESST's "Phantom"TM Electro-Magnetic Spectrum Operations (EMSO) device provides multi-function capability as a portable tactical EMSO device a portable electronic decoy, spectrum analyser, jammer, and EW trainer.

This kind of digitization capability also bridges KWESST's counter-threat systems like its advanced Battlefield Laser Detection System (BLDS) to counter the growing threat of weaponized lasers and laser designators against ground personnel. BLDS detects, identifies, and locates all variants of lasers in the battlefield for mounted or dismounted forces. KWESST is currently delivering this system to an overseas NATO customer and is in discussions with another major NATO country to integrate BLDS into an electro-optical armored vehicle package for near-term deployment.
