Project Convergence: How the US is Going to Destroy Targets Around the World


The details of the Project Convergence have been revealed. After that, it became clear how the United States is going to destroy targets around the world in a matter of seconds, writes the Ukrainian portal Defense Express.


The US military from the command of the future (Army Futures Command), after a six-week exercise conducted in the fall of 2020 at the Yuma training ground in Arizona, said that it used to take 20 minutes from the moment a target was detected to a shot, but now it is only 20 seconds.

Time itself is turning into a weapon

- say the military, who, during the Project Convergence exercise, tested the technical capabilities for transforming the combat space and its transition to a new quality.

For this, three technological innovations were involved. First, these are the satellites that took detailed photographs of the battlefield. Secondly, it is an experimental ground station with an artificial intelligence (AI) system, which processes data and issues target designation. Third, tactical communications satellites, transmitting information directly to the desired weapon system.

The past exercise marked the beginning of a large-scale retraining of the US Army. Soldiers rehearsed dozens of scenarios using various weapons and equipment, including AI systems.

Simplified, everything looked like this. The first group of satellites transmitted images of the battlefield to the TITAN ground station, after which the Prometheus AI system processed the photographs, detected targets and issued target designations. Through another group of satellites, through a secure communication channel, the information came to the desired form equipment, an entire unit or an individual shooter who fired a shot at a target.

Target designation data is integrated into the tactical software application Tactical Assault Kit. During the exercise, 350 of the above-described training battles were carried out, the publication summed up.

    Before Russia had time to test an anti-satellite missile, the Americans decided to rely on satellites ... Zadornov will be remembered for a long time.

    In ideal conditions, and in theory, this all works well too. And what will happen if the enemy will intensively use electronic warfare and various camouflage aerosols and so on?

      You are exaggerating the power of electronic warfare. wink I know this for sure, because I had something to do with it. repeat
      Fumes and aerosols, short-term and very local. Their use is more likely to draw attention to the target.
      It is very difficult to hide the preparation for the use of aviation or launching missiles.
      I can say for sure that pre-flight preparation lasts more than two hours and has many unmasking signs.

    Americans are already avno improving the "integrated combat space".
    Not only on the newest F, but also on the Abrams.

    20 seconds to respond to the whole world, that's not weak.

    Ukrainian "Captains did not discover the evidence of America. The United States has been building a global system for a long time. Starting from conventional weapons, such as this one."

    In two demonstrations, scheduled for September 21 and 23 at Yuma Proving Ground, Arizona, test teams of soldiers will try to reduce the time it takes to detect and engage targets to less than 20 seconds.

    https://news.yahoo.com/army-target-tracking-system-aims-135848407.html

    Artillery is ready to strike in 20 seconds after receiving target designation from satellites or drones. If we consider that aviation can also work for the same goals, then everything that happened in Karabakh was just childish pranks.
    Similar systems are being developed for missile defense, contracts have been concluded for the creation of satellites, by the way, one of the participants is a kind "pacifist and philanthropist" Musk.

    And only headless lemmings rejoice at every SpaceX launch and wait for the company to make them happy with the Internet. In the meantime, they are testing their system together with the Pentagon without dust and noise.

      Couldn't help but insert your slander, right?) You probably also use the Internet, which was originally created for military purposes, and the GPS system used to guide American missiles, grimacing with disgust?)

      Those who rejoice at every SpaceX launch are just as rejoicing and rejoicing at the launch of Gagarin on a modified military rocket, the main task of which (the basic version) is to erase cities into dust. Likewise, they rejoiced and rejoiced in the launches of American astronauts to the moon on a rocket designed by former SS and NSDAP member Wernher von Braun.

      Because these people understand that in addition to military use, all these projects are moving the general human progress forward.

      But the truly headless lemmings are hostile to any, absolutely any Western project only because their military will probably use this project in case of a mess.

      Interestingly, about the British satellite system OneWeb launched by Russia, which the US military is also planning to use, are you grilling your teeth too?)

      No one calls or calls Musk a pacifist. He himself, by the way. also did not call it that. You again invent something, and then you yourself expose your own inventions.

        Klyuza - small ccopa, small intriga, gossip, jerks (Ozhegov)
        What is intrigue or gossip? That I entered incorrect data? Does this not fit into the prevailing stereotype about Americans? Is the bright image of disinterested engineers, before losing their appetite, trying to benefit the world community with their achievements, crumbling before our eyes? Well, sorry, it's your own fault. Do not make yourself an idol. It's time to grow up and look at the real world with a sober, not clouded look.

        Those who rejoice at every SpaceX launch are just as rejoicing and rejoicing at the launch of Gagarin on a modified military rocket, the main task of which (the basic version) is to erase cities into dust. Likewise, they rejoiced and rejoiced in the launches of American astronauts to the moon on a rocket designed by former SS and NSDAP member Wernher von Braun.

        Those who rejoice in "every SpaceX launch" did not find Gagarin alive, and those who did, have a specific attitude towards "former SS men" like Wernher von Braun. It is customary for them to express emotions towards such persons with a bayonet or a butt. I’m even afraid to imagine how the residents of London were happy with the successes of the former "NSDAP member". They were not familiar with his products by hearsay.
        And those who urinate with boiling water every time you start headless lemmings and victims of the exam.

        "A modified military missile, the main task of which (of the basic version) is to erase cities into dust" was not used for its intended purpose and was made in response to American developments in the field of weapons, for it was a matter of survival. Von Braun's missiles were quite used in real conditions and the finding of such weapons left no doubt about the possibility of their use against us. Residents of Hiroshima and Nagasaki will not let you lie.

        Because these people understand that in addition to military use, all these projects are moving the general human progress forward.

        These "understanding" people have not experienced the horrors of war in their own skin. Probably in vain, it will sober up. We did just that, the Americans and the Germans created a rocket to destroy the USSR and sent a man into space on it. The Americans invented a nuclear bomb, we made the first nuclear power plant. Maybe I would not be so against such a "advancement of progress" if all this was not created against us, for our destruction. If you don't understand this, you are a typical headless lemming.

        Interestingly, about the British satellite system OneWeb launched by Russia, which the US military is also planning to use, are you grilling your teeth too?)

        They, with traditional "modesty", plan to use everything they can reach. Another question is whether to reach. Your news for March, in the summer the bankrupt company was bought by the government of England, who owns it now is not in the know. Judging by the message below, I believe that Russian participation in the project is possible.

        On December 18, 2020 at 15:26:26 Moscow time, the launching calculations of the subsidiaries of the State Corporation Roscosmos from the Vostochny cosmodrome launched the Soyuz-2.1b carrier rocket with the Fregat upper stage and 36 new OneWeb spacecraft on board.

        Share information that this is not so and together we will post yes

        No one calls or calls Musk a pacifist. He himself, by the way. also did not call it that. You again invent something, and then you yourself expose your own inventions.

        As a rule, a herd of fans talks about the "peaceful" side, modestly keeping silent about the military component of his projects. It is this gap that I fill. what are you worried about? Do you want people to know how he works tirelessly to destroy them? You are so much and apparently with pleasure, write about him, but practically do not pay attention to the military sphere. Again, grow up. This man is working to kill you. Well, or stay a lemming, everything is in your hands hi

          See the meaning of "petty quarrel" and "squabbling" :)

          Does this not fit into the prevailing stereotype about Americans? Is the bright image of disinterested engineers, before losing their appetite, trying to benefit the world community with their achievements, crumbling before our eyes? Well, sorry, it's your own fault. Do not make yourself an idol.

          Do not attribute to me your shattered illusions and complexes.

          It's time to grow up and look at the real world with a sober, not clouded look.

          So grow up, finally, and understand that the world is not black and white.

          Those who rejoice in "every SpaceX launch" did not find Gagarin alive, and those who did, have a specific attitude towards "former SS men" like Wernher von Braun. It is customary for them to express emotions towards such persons with a bayonet or a butt.

          Yes, really?) We are watching this news -

          Quote:

          Nikolaus Riehl also received the title of Hero of Socialist Labor, as well as the Stalin Prize. In 1951, it was awarded to Gustav Hertz, and Manfred von Ardenne became a laureate twice - in 1947 and 1953.

          Oh, how embarrassing - it turns out that the leadership of the USSR awarded state prizes to people who were preparing an atomic bomb for Hitler. And if they had prepared it, the Fuhrer would hardly have avoided the temptation to use it in Moscow.

          State awards - is that your bayonet and butt?)

          But this is an atomic project. And what about the rocket? you can read about this too -

          https://ria.ru/20180917/1528610535.html

          Quote:

          the technology was rebuilt literally from scratch. This was done by the third department of the famous NII-88, the work was supervised by Sergey Korolev. To help his group, about 150 German specialists with families who voluntarily agreed to work for the USSR.

          As you can see, in the country most affected by German Nazism, German scientists who were developing weapons directed against Russia were quite well received. And how well in the USSR they treated Paulus and other German military officials who took a direct part (unlike scientists and designers) in the attack and destruction of Soviet soldiers and civilians - you just love it.

          And the solution is simple - unlike some commentators from the "Reporter", the Soviet leadership had its own head on its shoulders, and they did not paint the world in black and white.

          I’m even afraid to imagine how the residents of London were happy with the successes of the former "NSDAP member". They were not familiar with his products by hearsay.

          Let's prove that they tore their hair out :)

          "A modified military missile, the main task of which (of the basic version) is to erase cities into dust" was not used for its intended purpose and was made in response to American developments in the field of weapons, for it was a matter of survival.

          The R-7 was in service with the USSR, which means that it could be used at any time.

          The "Starlink" Mask has not yet been used for the war either, but this does not prevent you from showing your teeth :)

          These "understanding" people have not experienced the horrors of war in their own skin. Probably in vain, it will sober up. We did just that, the Americans and the Germans created a rocket to destroy the USSR and sent a man into space on it. The Americans invented a nuclear bomb, we made the first nuclear power plant.

          The first experimental NPP appeared in 1950 in the USA :) Obninsk NPP became the first one connected to the power grid.

          They, with traditional "modesty", plan to use everything they can reach. Another question is whether to reach. Your news for March, in the summer the bankrupt company was bought by the government of England, who owns it now is not in the know. Judging by the message below, I believe that Russian participation in the project is possible.

          The company is British. In 2017, a joint venture was created between One Web and the Russian company Gonets Satellite System to provide communication services in Russia.

          True, already in 2018, the FSB opposed the use of the OneWeb system as a threat to the national security of the Russian Federation.

          Now deal with this mess yourself and try to figure out with your black and white thinking who is "against Russia" and who is "for Russia" :)

          And then do the same with regard to the Russian company Energomash, which supplies rocket engines to the United States for missiles that launch American military satellites, potentially directed against Russia :)

          As a rule, a herd of fans talks about the "peaceful" side, modestly keeping silent about the military component of his projects. It is this gap that I fill. what are you worried about? You don't want people to know how he works tirelessly to destroy them? You are so much and apparently with pleasure, write about him, but practically do not pay attention to the military sphere. Again, grow up. This man is working to kill you..

          How much pathos :)

          This person works to achieve his goal, which he has already voiced more than once or twice. The fact that in order to achieve this goal he cooperates, among other things, with the American military is Openel's secret, which is known to everyone who is at least somehow interested in this topic. But you, apparently, discovered this for yourself only recently and it is still an ordinary, in general, event that will shock you :)

            Don't upset your opponent. Otherwise, he habitually falls into hibernation, out of grief.
            And if you do not think to finish off, tell him that the USA, which have lost their nuclear technologies, are building reactors for nuclear submarines, for 40 years without recharging ... belay
            That's it!
            The gap for the "Air Force flag" is secured.
