Associated technologies

Manoeuvre Function (II)

The 35 Brigade must fight in the physical, virtual and cognitive domain. It therefore requires a range of different technologies to allow it to fulfill its mission as a decisive force.

Some of this technology is already a reality, whilst other elements will be ready in the short term (around 2024), and the rest will be ready in the medium term (2030) or in the long term (2035).

The box below shows the technological advances which are required for the previously mentioned deadlines.
