The Application Of Radio In Military
The rapid development of military communications technology
Since the 1930s, with the development of science and technology, military communication technology and means have produced a series of fundamental revolution. In 1837 the American Morse invented the earliest electromagnetic telegraph and the combination of the Morse code, triggering the history of military communications in the history of the first technological revolution; in 1895 the Italian man and the Russian Popov Successfully conducted a radio communication test, led to the development of military communications in the history of the second technological revolution; between the two world wars, radio communication technology to achieve three breakthrough: 1923 to achieve a shortwave communication; 1931 to achieve a microwave communication ; In 1936 the establishment of the ultra-short-wave relay communications; 1957 years ago, the Soviet Union launched the first man-made earth satellite, the military communications will enter the era of satellite space communications. In particular, with a series of revolution in integrated circuit technology and later computer, communications satellite and network technology, the rise and unprecedented development, making the human information technology to achieve a great leap in the century, a single combat weapon platform combat multiplier.
Positioning the GPS of modern battlefield
In the 20th century, the United States in the "Star Wars Program" began to build GPS system. Nowadays, any time on earth, any time can receive satellite signals from space orbit, and three-dimensional positioning accuracy, speed accuracy, time accuracy and other unprecedented increase. The new positioning system in the US military to take a number of military operations have played an important role. Through the GPS system, the command agencies can always grasp the position of the front forces to perform the task, the individual can by virtue of their own information platform in the face of danger, you can quickly to the help force to report their own accurate position, timely request emergency air support; Support fighters, can quickly and accurately provide high-precision rescue. In 1995, Russia completed its own space positioning project plan, so that the combat capability of individual has been significantly improved. It is reported that the European Union has also recently invested heavily in the launch of the "Galileo" satellite navigation system, the plan will be completed and put into use in 2008.
The information systems of the Soldier Weapons Platform are made up of small computers and wireless electronic systems that use miniature GPS satellite receivers to provide the specific location of the soldiers through the computer while providing other soldiers' Can cooperate with each other, so that the battlefield situation panoramic view, "at a glance." Due to breakthrough in integrated guidance technology, thus overcoming the global positioning system vulnerable to obstruction and radio interference caused by signal loss
