WELCOME WORDS

 

by Lieutenant General Pierre Gillet

Commander of the French Rapid Reaction Corps

It is with great pleasure that Rapid Reaction Corps - France looks forward to engaging with you at the third Vauban Sessions on 18 and 19 January 2021, in close collaboration with CEIS.

 

This will be an opportunity to share progress that is being made in doctrine, military capacity, or purely "intellectual" in terms of controlling and processing information.

 

More than ever, the passing and sharing of information on time, ensuring that the smallest and most isolated units are able to receive orders and share information with the requisite levels of command, is vitally important. This must be done at the multinational level, ensuring interoperability throughout, contributing to the establishment of operational superiority.

 

This chain is already well advanced as we see rapid developments in technology across NATO Forces. In the French army, we are focusing on the SCORPION programme. It is about ensuring redundant and secure communication systems, as well as mastering the storage and sharing of increasingly important information flows.

 

New developments are beginning to appear that must be adapted to the needs of our forces. In addition to this, we must master information flows, and question how artificial inteligence can contribute and influence our decision-making ability. This is a vast subject which is continually changing and developing. If we are to be viewed as a credible fighting force, we must be able to adapt to these changes.
