VICTORY is intended to save resources by lessening the need for multiple attachments inside wheeled vehicles and ground combat systems, and will also allow vehicle platforms to share information, providing an integrated picture to the crew.
"Soldiers will find more common sets of devices, displays, and information in a wider range of vehicles ultimately making Soldiers and formations more connected, aware, and capable," according to an Army statement.
The new architecture was demonstrated on a Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle (MRAP) in the Network Integration Evaluation (NIE) 15.2 in May 2015
"The demonstration illustrated how implementing the VICTORY standard could increase situational awareness within vehicles and across unit formations," the official statement reads.
By 2017, the Army plans to have the new networking architecture implemented on a wide range of vehicles, including Joint Light Tactical Vehicles, Strykers, Abrams tanks and Bradley Fighting Vehicles.
