BAE is displaying the latest version of CV90 Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV) integrated with iFighting concept at the 2018 Eurosatory trade show in Paris.
The iFighting technology is designed to optimize vehicle and crew performance by harnessing data to enable faster decision-making in combat, the company said in a statement Monday.
The fifth generation CV90 Infantry Fighting Vehicle, known as the MkIV features advancements in speed, mobility, and electronics, and is being offered to the Czech Republic to replace its aging fleet of infantry fighting vehicles.
The iFighting concept fuses together data from different systems within the vehicle to filter through and prioritize the most critical information. This allows the crew to make quicker decisions to improve overall performance on the battlefield.
The CV90 MkIV will also have the fourth generation Electronic Architecture compatible with NATO-standard Generic Vehicle Architecture (NGVA), which allows crews to manage large amounts of live-stream data and is interoperable within the NATO Alliance. This step change will enable the introduction of autonomous crew support, machine-learning algorithms — including artificial intelligence capabilities — and augmented reality with the support of 3D map data.
