Imagine the applications and implications of robotics and artificial intelligence in 2045

Describe your idea

Digital AI given to unit level C/O and NCO.
Receives structured data from up-chain and send over structured data from unit.
When out of link, extrapolates current knowledge and presents visually troop positions, possible movements, and risks.

Add Improvement

What makes this idea new or different?

Every Lt. and Sgt. become a general of their own. Empowers every unit officer and NCO to quickly visualize battlefield options based on consolidated data from all nearby units. But the most interesting feature is to allow predictions of enemy and friendly actions when link is not possible, helping each unit orient themselves based on knowledge acquired so far. It also allows each unit to share back ideas/plans/info and outcomes across units.

Add Improvement

What will be the implications of this idea?

Decision speed. Decentralization of information to lower echelons allow junior officers and NCOs to make sound decisions based on information available. The AI helps info consumption by laying out possible outcomes and helping digest the information received so far. Lessons learnt from engagements can also flow quicker to all units, helping increase effectiveness.

DARPA and the Army are working on the concept of a Super-Enhanced Small Unit to meet the demands of the fast and lethal future battlefield. This could feed nicely into that idea.
