Paper Abstract

After the revolution of Dignity in Ukraine (November 21, 2013 – February 22, 2014) the political landscape in the Ukrainian society has changed the direction toward the EU and NATO integrations. In the digital era, situational awareness on the modern battle field requires absolutely new solutions. The armory and logistics of the Ukraine Defense Forces was outdated very much at that time. Existing national and international legislation did not allow to export Western modern military supplies from abroad. That gap was quickly fulfilled by the enthusiastic and talented volunteers as domestic so international. One joint project was the development of handheld situational awareness system for field artillery. The key of this successful story used to be open-source IT technologies. Android-based solution fully supports the UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) which is often used as flying weather station, for video control and reconnaissance, targeting and radio relay. In this paper, we preset the results of multi-year R&D project which turned into commercial.
