The Philippines Army to Digitalise Records

The Philippine Army (PA) confirmed its intent to digitalise the documentation process. According to PA spokesperson Col. Xerxes Trinidad, the digitalisation project is part of the PA leadership’s attempts to use technology to provide relevant and responsive services to soldiers.

“This digitalisation will assist the PA in expediting the processing of benefits due to meritorious people, particularly our KIA (killed in action), wounded, sick, and retirees,” said PA chief Lt. Gen. Romeo S. Brawner Jr.

At the Army Headquarters in Fort Bonifacio, the PA and technology solutions supplier master’s Stewards Information Technology (MIST) inked a digitalisation agreement under the Office of the Army Adjutant. The office is the repository for all Army officers and troops from commissioning or enlistment until retirement. The signing reaffirmed the agreement between the PA, represented by Army Adjutant Col. Danilo Estraero, and MIST Solutions, Inc., represented by its managing director, Mary Ann Cabal-Soleno.

Last year, PhilSA and the Department of National Defense (DND) signed an agreement to strengthen national security and development activities through Space Science and Technology Applications (SSTA). Before establishing a memorandum of understanding with DND, PhilSA collaborated closely with the defence and security industries.

PhilSA is working hard to safeguard the country’s sovereignty. Currently, the agency works with several AFP divisions to produce satellite data products for maritime domain cognisance, area monitoring, and other satellite operations for defence and security.

PhilSA has been educating the Philippine Navy and Air Force on using satellite pictures and AI for automatic object recognition. It also has a Memorandum of Understanding with the National Coast Watch Centre to improve maritime security through space-enabled technology.

Similarly, the United States has realised the significance of converting technology in the defence sector. As a result, the government has made significant technological advances for its army. It has even used its arm to establish the Cyber National Mission Force, the Department of Defense’s newest subordinate unified command.

The CNMF is the United States military’s joint cyber force entrusted with defending the country in cyberspace through full-spectrum operations encompassing offensive, defensive, and information operations. The classification of CNMF as a sub-unified command acknowledges the organisation’s long-standing purpose of combatting foreign harmful cyber actors, underlines its continuous success in advancing national priorities and formalises its organisational structure.

The army used games, simulators, and 3D training simulations to teach its forces. The United States Air Force has made the KingFish Agile Combat Employment game the capstone exercise for the Air Mobility Command’s Rapid Global Mobility Course 3. (RGMC 3). The game allows students to visualise, learn from, and comprehend the notions of ACE and Multi-Capable Airmen in a more tangible way.

In the meantime, the US Air Force has created a new training platform called the Weapons System Trainer Reconfigurable C-130J flight simulator (WST 12R). The new simulator includes block updates to boost software and hardware capability expansions aimed at improving aircraft flying skills.

These training profiles will be like the flying, weight, and climatic conditions that MAFFS aircrews will encounter on wildfire suppression missions. The new simulator will train aircrews to manage circumstances more effectively and successfully, improving safety and mission success.

The United States Navy developed MRTS 3D (Multipurpose Reconfigurable Training System) as a 3D training simulation that gives an interactive training experience via a multi-touch screen. By boosting achievement and operation readiness, the deployment of MRTS 3D onboard Lincoln aids in meeting future fleet requirements. The simulations immerse Sailors in a three-dimensional world geared to their job requirements.

MRTS 3D offers a variety of software simulations through realistic, virtual training on a variety of platforms. MRTS 3D trainers are intended to be employed on Navy ships in Sailor rate boot camps and pre-deployment group exercises.
