No plan survives first contact with the enemy

Multi-Domain Systems (MDS)

Gaining advantage by managing and exploiting complexity

Military commanders need the ability to rapidly adapt to changing situations. Ideally, they should be able to leverage any available sensing, weapon, or communication capability, even if that capability is managed by another service. If available, the Army should be able to take advantage of a Navy-owned sensor, and vice-versa.

The goal is to take complexity and overwhelm the enemy with an asymmetric advantage. Creating the interfaces that allow this level of friction-free coordination requires a revolution in planning and conducting operations.

Boston Fusion is part of that revolution. We’re developing tools to support multi-domain operations: scenario generators, machine learning algorithms for selecting best multi-domain tactics, and tools for modeling and managing complexity in multi-domain operations.


"What Multi-Domain Operations gives you is the opportunity to maneuver in the way we have trained for decades. What will be distinct is we will rely on the tactical level to think, assess and employ all domains when necessary...the thinking has to be such that tactical-level commanders can see opportunities for all domains to be integrated or leverage the benefits of other domains in their tactical space.
