US Air Force performs first Advanced Battle Management System demonstration

The US Air Force (USAF) on 16–18 December performed its first demonstration of the Advanced Battle Management System (ABMS) Internet-of-Things (IoT) combat concept.

The demonstration was one full day’s worth of demonstrations spread out over three days, according to Preston Dunlap, USAF chief architect, office of the assistant secretary for acquisition, technology, and logistics (AT&L). During this first demonstration, operators across the USAF, US Army, US Navy (USN), and industry tested multiple real-time data-sharing tools and technology in a homeland defence-based scenario enacted by US Northern Command (NORTHCOM) and enabled by USAF senior leaders.
