Army in the midst of huge battlefield IT test

Close to 4,000 U.S. Army soldiers are in the middle of a six-week test designed to assess how the Army can integrate new technologies into battlefield operations. The Network Integration Exercise at Fort Bliss and White Sands Missile Range is experimenting with the Army’s push to create a single, integrated battlefield IT network, and to determine how easily new technologies from industry can be brought into that network. They’re testing more than 30 new technologies in the current exercise.
