FRIENDLY FORCE TRACKING
Know where your friends are!
Friendly Force Tracking (also known as Blue Force Tracking) is commonly regarded as one of the most important capabilities of a Command and Control Information System (C2IS).
An effective friendly force tracking system provides commanders at all levels with the exact location of own forces and any coalition forces in their areas of operations. This knowledge is the key factor in force protection by significantly reducing the risk of friendly fire (fratricide). At the same time, the improved situational awareness allows commanders to make use of the full operational capabilities of their forces. This is why Friendly Force Tracking is integrated into all SitaWare products and provides effective friendly force tracking of both mounted and dismounted units at near real-time refresh rates.
