Digital systems as a force multiplier

Information superiority is mission-critical in our hyper-connected world. Digital technologies enable intelligence surveillance reconnaissance by gathering, analysing and sharing in real-time secure, trusted and relevant data.

To create a decisive digital advantage, we ensure trusted and secure data flow along the entire command chain, optimising operational readiness, decision support and forces coordination.

Atos digital systems connect forces worldwide, from battalion to headquarters, on secure critical communication networks, delivering agile information sharing and real-time situational awareness.

The 3 drivers of digitalisation in defence, for a decisive advantage

Operational readiness >

During combat operations, interoperability, adaptability and agility are crucial. Deployable synchronisation tools and decentralised architecture that can support offline service operations, understanding the availability of assets and deploying it with speed are key.

    • Knowledge management
      Single information environment
    • Availability of equipment
      Logistics and maintenance data platforms
    • Availability of people
      Security of systems
    • Cyber Defence systems

Decision support >

At the strategic level and in the operations theater, situational awareness and intelligence accuracy are critical.

Battflefields commanders require real-time access to the right data – relevant, reliable, secure, dynamic – avoiding information overload at decisive moments.

    • Intelligent knowledge management
      AI and big data platforms
    • Actionable decisive information
      Collaborative combat systems and defense platforms
    • Secure decision propagation and feedback, in real time
      Critical communication systems and digital soldier equipement

Forces coordination >

In the field, speed of maneuver generates surprise and keeps forces one step ahead of the enemy.

This requires resilient communication networks, sharing situational awareness data in collaborative mode, with fluid transmission of positional and operational data, using voice for critical information only.

  • Frictionless collaboration and data exchange

  • Secure large volume of information shared

Emerging defence challenges

Interoperability, agility and speed

Forces must always be able to visualise and coordinate all actions, with perfectly coordinated logistics and back-office support. Success depends on getting the right rational data. We enable real-time analysis and sharing of the communications spectrum – signal, human and open source intelligence – will trigger effective prescriptive action.

Trusted and secure data

Information and data is vital for operation success. Commanders and troops on land, at sea, in the sky, and in both space and cyber domains need access to fast and reliable data. A trusted and secure data ensure making the right decisions at the right time. Data maturity is crucial to leverage automated systems and Artificial Intelligence, the game-changing warfighting technologies.


While essential for boosting military efficiency, cyber-technologies are also leveraged as weapons, as many recent and highly sophisticated cyber-attacks have shown. Cybersecurity has become a critical strategic domain for warfare, where armies must prepare. Cyber space and critical technologies will help build a safe, secure and prosperous Australia.

Augmented soldier

Troops need seamless connectivity with their squad and HQ, and collaborative combat systems with real-time information to coordinate and adapt to tactical situations. Connected systems and weapons provide troops with smart support to assess threats and risks, together with prescriptive assistance in domains ranging from intelligence, to mission and medical assistance.

New missions

Armed forces face a changing threat landscape. They must detect and fight hostile propaganda, protect critical national infrastructure and manage low-intensity conflicts inside the homeland as well as in allied and hostile territories. Defence missions are broader: anti-terrorism, hostage rescue, disaster and epidemic management, as well as peacekeeping and humanitarian relief. This calls for broad-spectrum, agile digital systems.
