PARIS (BNS): MBDA has unveiled a new interactive demonstrator called MiC2 (MBDA innovative C2) at the Eurosatory 2014.

The MiC2 is aimed at improving the efficacy of air defence operators. In particular, it is designed to ease their workload while at the same time allowing them to maximize the deployment and engagement characteristics of each kind of missile involved, MBDA said.

The demonstrator's Man Machine Interface (MMI) inspired by smartphones and tablets allows for introduction of technologies such as voice recognition and eye tracking, which provides fluidity and speed of execution for the operator.

François Moussez, MBDA's Military Air Advisor said "... Customers are increasingly looking for C2 systems that are capable of controlling several layers of air defence. And the rules of engagement are becoming much stricter. In having to manage ever more complex systems with extremely demanding target identification requirements, operators will see their workload increase.

It is in thinking about tomorrow that we have decided to consider C2 ergonomics, maintaining the principle of placing of the operator at the centre of the activity and providing him with the information that he needs with a minimum of effort and in the minimum period of time."
