8 In late May, a cold mountain in western Yunnan, a division of the Chengdu Military Region in the context of a real confrontation exercise shining points.
walk through the drill site, which caused my attention to detail: from the camouflaged sniper’s mark on the target, is quickly identified the “enemy” is “I” or “Friends”; air defense of the “enemy” fire while preparing to do with radar and aircraft check “e-password”; anti-tank missile positions, one’s own armored targets can be observed infrared emission signal … …
the battlefield details, including how a designer considerations?
drill ground Jingxian “own goal”
Last fall, a mountain in western Yunnan, the organization of the division tactical combat training. Mist, five again and again with two rows of long-Yu Zeyong quietly hidden from the “Blue Army” sounding, quietly waiting for planes.
“suspicious people come and go in front!” Headphones came outpost report. Yu Zeyong judge: “Our side is still lurking, not in front of the activity, these people should be the ‘enemy’ patrol post.”
“Strike!” Yu Zeyong ordered. “Suddenly, suddenly …” sniper rifle sounded. Count victories when the fighting ended, Yu Zeyong shocked – these were “killed” five “enemy” troops, was actually adjacent units scout!
coincidence. Soon, the organization of the division air defense exercises, an “enemy” reconnaissance aircraft into the zone, I immediately fired anti-aircraft missile, the “enemy” suffered “heavy losses.” The results, once again eye-popping: dispatch department identify, attack reconnaissance aircraft for one’s own, their attack before the air defense group to launch identification signals, but not effectively identify positions.
“on the battlefield, opportunity fleeting, often not that I die you die, the unit commander can not be checked carefully the nature of the target, and then decided to attack.” Commander Yu Zeyong these “amusing incident “very difficulties, air defense commanders also feel the same group: identifying targets in the air a short time is difficult, if not the first time ahead of the shot, will miss the opportunity.
wrong than to play are not allowed to have terrible
“accuracy and lethality of modern weapons, rising suddenly into the speed force, engagement distance is widening, interlocking enemy targets, identify the role of the battlefield is more prominent, higher standards, more stringent requirements it! “teachers Jiangyong Shen pointed out sharply that” the enemy recognition is an important part of fighting forces on the priority goal is to determine the preferred attack of the controversy, reflects some of the commanders I identify fuzzy understanding of the enemy. “
Next, ginger teachers to explain the mistake to commanders shocking casualty wars: the Fourth Middle East War, Israel, the Egyptian air defense forces shot down 89 aircraft at the same time, 69 aircraft shot down one’s own; the Gulf War, the U.S. military from the accidental injury occurred 28 accidents, 147 soldiers killed in mistaken attack by 24% of death … …
drill ground contact forces occur frequently Since the pendulum “clumsy” commanders on pins and needles. Them through exercise, “Replay”, one by one to find and analyze problems and allowed for the commander to determine the circumstances, observers observation errors, poor communication and intelligence support and the front, a single means of identification technology and other issues, one by one study of the solution. “Do not check the do not know, an investigation surprised, to fight the vision to look at, really a lot of loopholes.” Commanders with emotion, “the next war, wrong than to play are not allowed to have terrible!”
polish soldiers identify “eye”
future battlefield environment, how to achieve fast and accurate identification? Build on the progress of the division, the IFF as a priority subjects for research studies. Organization in the division this summer against real soldiers with real exercise equipment, IFF training throughout the entire process.
“”4 enemy aircraft approaching along the northeast direction, distance of 25 kilometers.” I see the air base command post, after receiving the informed observation, the radar sends out a radio signal is not received inquiry ” electronic back order “, decisive commander ordered air defense positions to concentrate the” enemy “precision strikes. Teachers Jiangyong Shen said: “‘e-password’ and instantly be able to distinguish the enemy, me, friends!”
If our target by the electromagnetic interference can not respond to “e-password” how to do? If the “enemy” posing as how to do our launch spoofing signal … … the exercise, commanders immediately enable the backup system for authentication, the command “non-collaborative” identification method, the information processor to extract the target features input system, and target intrinsic parameters of the control information, the nature of the target to determine the … …
“anti-terrorism game, if the gun aimed at me, friends, or civilians, the sight will appear as red.” reconnaissance battalion soldiers Censong Bin students said: “In the future when the IFF system technology is more mature, combat identification will be more accurate!”

recognize the real enemy and non-gimmicky
“own goal”, derived from English “OWN GOAL” word, meaning “from the goal into the side of the ball.” World Cup match, “own goal” probability is not large, but often deadly impact war. This game is on the battlefield, men play the “own goal”, the consequences even more disastrous.
information under the condition of the key operations is to enhance the military battlefield situational awareness, and situational awareness technology, the IFF is one of the core. If the ability to identify friends and foes behind the killing capacity, killing the stronger, more serious consequences of accidental injury. Accordingly, the key link in the training facilities, improve the ability to identify the enemy is extremely important, the newly revised “House rules” by writing a special “mistakenly hit an accident accident prevention.” Commanders in the organization of training, not only in the IFF to seek a breakthrough on the technology, but also in peacetime training exercises in the IFF as a key subjects for study and training, and strive to wartime mistake to minimize the probability of casualties.
