IDF to shorten sensor-to-shooter cycle

Israel: Israel Defense Forces (IDF), in association with Ness Technologies, is developing Crystal Ball, an innovative technology to shorten the sensor-to-shooter cycle. It will allow commanders who are sitting in a command centre to select a target they detect on video footage provided by an unmanned aerial vehicle and have it turned immediately into coordinates which can be attacked.
According to a report published on The Jerusalem Post, the need to reduce the cycle is considered critical by the IDF as it faces possible future conflicts with enemies like Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
Commenting on the latest development, an IDF official said, “Rocket launchers don’t stay in the same place for long and therefore we need to be able to attack them when we detect them. This will allow commanders to immediately get coordinates for targets and attack them with precision munitions they have in land, air or sea platforms.”
