An advertisement posted in June by Olgoonik Development seeks a security specialist to work there for the Blue Force Tracker
Initial assessments from units in theater indicated that Force XXI Battle Command Brigade-and-Below (FBCB2) and Blue Force Tracker
(BFT) were winners and that e-mail, chat rooms (Instant Messaging), and Web pages were critical for collaboration and information dissemination.
Some examples of success are: the Active RFID In-Transit Visibility (ITV) System, the Movement Tracking System (MTS), and the Blue Force Tracker
Not only should they be deployed with a robust equipment list, enabling them with all the capabilities and assets necessary to maintain redundant communications with their parent unit, but also be properly trained on those systems such as Command Post of the Future, Blue Force Tracker
and tactical satellite radio systems.
The system also acts as a dismounted blue force tracker
, showing icons for each Soldier wearing a tracker.
Suites such as Blue Force Tracker
and Force XXI Battle Command Brigade and Below compensate for line-of-sight platform blackouts stemming from lengthy lines of communication but are somewhat unreliable, particularly if free text-message server queues become jammed.
Whether it's Blue Force Tracker
(BFT), MTS, tactical satellite, very-small-aperture terminal (VSAT), or any other platform, there must be redundancy.
The 1W102-7 P8 connector for the Blue Force Tracker
(BFT) system is mounted to the turret roof next to the gunner's dome light.
This exercise demonstrated the effectiveness of Blue Force Tracker
(a system that uses global positioning information to provide military commanders and forces with the locations of friendly and hostile military forces) in a defense support to civil authorities situation.
This is almost a blue force tracker
for individuals, says Steve Edgett, vice president for business development at EMS Global Tracking.
Since Digital University's inception in July 2007, nearly 3,000 Soldiers have been trained on any number of tactical systems, including the Advanced Field Artillery Tactical Data System, the Maneuver Control System, the Command Post of the Future, the Distributed Common Ground System-Army, and Blue Force Tracker
US defence chiefs had produced Blue Force Tracker
which would have told commanders the position of allied forces.
