Equipped with the digital ICS, soldiers could mark friendly forces and conduct identification friend or foe (IFF) via their multifunctional night-vision goggles.

Meanwhile, the video and information sent back to the headquarters by the goggles can help the commanders accurately identify every soldier’s location and status and observe the real-time situation, obtaining comprehensive battlefield information.

According to a commanding officer of the brigade, the ICS can help the commanders track the battle process, replace the casualties and rearrange teams in a real-time manner. Moreover, it can facilitate communications and inform every individual soldier of his new task at any time.

It is learned that such new equipment has been distributed to more than 90% of troops of the Tibet Military Command. The resulting integrated combat system has effectively strengthened the combat effectiveness of the troops’ firepower.
