Defence scientists from a number of countries will be in Montreal in mid-September to participate in an experiment to look at new technologies for fighting and conducting operations in cities.
The Contested Urban Environment 2018 experiment will take place from September 10 to 21, and involve Canadian defence scientists and Canadian Forces personnel conducting a series of technology research experiments in the city. They will be joined by participants from nations including Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States. The experiment is being conducted in support of advancing research around how to best conduct military operations in what is being called “complex urban environments,” according to the Department of National Defence.
Postmedia reported last year that Canada will contribute to specific areas of expertise in this field, including technologies in intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, communications and small arms.
Canada participated in a similar experiment last year in Australia. Approximately 80 scientists from the U.S, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the UK took part in that experiment, which began Nov. 20 and ended Dec. 1. The Canadian contingent consisted of 10 staff from Defence Research and Development Canada. In addition, around 100 personnel from the Australian Defence Force were involved.
C4ISR magazine reported that various new and emerging technologies from Australia, the U.S. and Canada were selected for that experiment, including DST Group’s Defence Experimentation Airborne Platform; a Beechcraft 1900 aircraft configured for Wide Area Surveillance Activity Based Intelligence, or WASABI, with an Angel Fire 2 96-megapixel camera; a Selex Galileo PicoSAR synthetic aperture radar; and a Wescam MX-20HD full-motion, high-definition video sensor.
Meanwhile, on September 5, Canadian defence scientists from Defence Research and Development Canada Suffield, along with Canadian military personnel at CFB Suffield, will be conducting an emergency response exercise.
The exercise will allow base civilian and military emergency specialists to test their skills as well as current systems and procedures in a simulated emergency situation including those to address chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or explosive agents. The exercise will also involve a 911 call and response by civilian emergency responders, in order to test the integrated systems currently in place, according to the Department of National Defence.
Make no bones about it when they come for the guns it will be with overwhelming force. You may believe this herald then after it's too late. The world moves at the speed of the predadtor not the prey.
Now they make house calls.
