A vital element of transforming military forces - in any era - is the conduct of experiments on new ideas and organisations. This validates new forms of warfighting and also gives military personnel confidence in new approaches to their profession. https://t.co/XE2APqOcb6



Die uitleg over het blokkeren van Tom Van Grieken toont nog maar eens hoe willekeur heerst bij Twitter.

Het is niet nodig dit soort arbitraire "moderatie" te pikken, de #fediverse bestaat en werkt goed, zie bijvoorbeeld joinmastodon.org

This seizes on a point I raised years ago on the definition of operational art. Don't constrain the concept to the operational level of war: "Operational art, as with any art form, is about creative thinking and innovative problem-solving."



Europese samenwerking is zeker relevant. Maar het gaat niet op dat regio's als Vlaanderen de ene dag roepen hoe groot en geweldig zij niet zijn, en zeggen dat ze slechts een "speldenprik" zijn als ze hun verantwoordelijkheid moeten nemen.

"Integrating UGVs into combat formations prior to the arrival of full autonomy will allow Soldiers and leaders to develop and refine the necessary doctrine and tactics, techniques, and procedures required to effectively employ UGVs on future battlefields."

The Optio-X20 (Milrem Robotics' #THeMIS #UGV + #Nexter's #ARX20 #RWS) was tested by the French army in defensive and offensive actions. The Optio-X20 is capable of eliminating targets protected up to level 4 (#STANAG).

3D-printing zal ook kunnen aan boord van de schepen van de Belgische en Nederlandse Marine, en elders in Defensie.

Al moet ik jammer genoeg wel toegeven dat onze logge procedures niet echt aangepast zijn aan dit soort snelle technologische evoluties...

Dit zal ons helpen bij onze studie naar het opwerpen van fijn stof door explosies, en vanzelfsprekend worden de gegevens geรฏntegreerd in het VLINDER netwerk. Win-win dus!
