In the dense forests, China’s “Black Fox” team conducts a stealth reconnaissance mission. The team members, equipped with smart glasses, use AR technology to improve their situational awareness by displaying mission briefings and mapping navigational routes.
Their task intensifies when they receive new intelligence: “Significant changes in enemy movement detected. Relevant information has been updated in your terminal.” With their intelligent helmets, the team leader is able to identify potential hazards, such as landmines, and mark them on a virtual map, guiding their navigation.
Adding to their arsenal of advanced tools, team members employ smart gloves to control drones, assisting in accomplishing tasks like carrying ropes across river banks and circling trees to secure safe crossings.
The team also uses bird-shaped drones, aptly named ‘Flapping Bird,’ for surveillance purposes. The drones are equipped with systems that automatically identify enemy targets and collect pertinent intelligence.
Preparations for launching unmanned aerial strikes are underway, with the “Black Fox” team sharing mission tasks through a digital sand table. The team is now equipped to deploy drones for bomb drops and off-axis attacks, adding to the modern warfare repertoire.
Xie Xin from the Military Science Academy in China emphasizes, “These are not scenes from a science fiction film. These are the results of extensive research at the Military Science Academy.”
Researchers and development teams are working hard to refine the integrated intelligent interactive systems. They are seeking feedback from ground forces and tailoring their innovations to enhance combat efficiency.
Xie Xin further adds, “Innovation is the accelerator of an army’s combat power. As we advance in this era of intelligence, we are committed to pioneering research and exploration, targeting breakthroughs in leading technologies.”
These developments are a testament to the transformative power of technology in modern warfare, demonstrating that technological advancement is key to enhancing battlefield capabilities.
