The Bundeswehr wants to make a big leap in the urgently needed improvement in the command and control of its land forces. The Federal Ministry of Defense has set the goal of converting Division 2027, with a total of around 10,000 vehicles, to a "D-LBO basic" configuration and expansion by the end of 2025, according to Brigadier General Jürgen Schmidt, Head of the Combat Department at the Bundeswehr Procurement Office BAAINBw , writes in an article in the current special edition of the defense technology report for the autumn symposium of the Förderkreis Heer eV.
The background to this decision is the Russian attack on Ukraine in February 2022, writes the general.
Accepting a reduced range of functions, digital radio devices could be made available to the armed forces much more quickly with D-LBO basic, due to the significantly lower integration effort and financial requirements.

A quantum leap in electronic warfareThe rapidly evolving threats on the electronic battlefield pose major challenges for today's air forces. Air Forces must be trained to deal with these threats and successfully achieve their objectives in the face of growing threats. Therefore, an upgrade of the training areas is necessary to present the pilots with a realistic environment that replicates modern air defense systems in order to optimize the effectiveness of the training. For this purpose, the company ELTA Systems Ltd. (ELTA) leveraged its five decades of technological heritage and culture of innovation to bring Scorpius-T (ELL-8257SB) to market.
