The Thalès Inc. company has been mandated to develop scenarios in the context of Combat ID Applied Research Project. This presentation includes three scenarios. Here is a summary of these scenarios. Scenario 1 (ground-to-ground) - A reluctant peace is enforced by a multinational brigade (US, UK, France and Canada) over a broad area. Three battalions are assigned areas to patrol, and the Canadian battlegroup is assigned as the brigade reserve. The area involved has paramilitary insurgents scattered throughout, who can be hostile to deployed NATO forces if there are political gains to be made. The Croatian force has a full regiment capable of deploying, equipped with modem Russian materials. The goal of this scenario 1 is to demonstrate sources of fratricide in a peace enforcement scenario. Scenario 2 (air-to-ground) - Increasingly, western armament inventories are characterized by precision weapons with significant lethality. Technologies to improve the integration of these air assets for direction by ground forces in close situations is increasingly available. However, effort needs to be undertaken to understand whether the situational awareness of the aircrews involved in ground-attack missions, is aligned with the situational awareness of friendly ground forces in the same area of tactical operations. Link 16 is becoming rapidly deployed into western air forces as the situational awareness system of choice. Parallel efforts to improve situational awareness in ground forces
