Help me understand this. I'm going to be right with some of this and dead wrong in other areas. All armored vehicles can share their visual perspective of the battlefield ( radar ) with other vehicles to gain a wider perspective. JSTARS similiar to AWACS. Is able to track all mechanical targets on the battle field with the ability to estimate speed and direction, Also monitors weather targets are friend or foe. This information is available to all equiped vehicles on the ground. This means we can see you but you can't see us. Currently still in development but in battle usable form is a system for special ops. This system ties into satellite and links into JSTARS. With heat signatures and friend or foe information the battle field starts lighting up individual human targets on the ground. The ground forces can see the battle field on portable systems they carry to see exactly whats taking place. OK... How stupid am I. Or how close am I to the real deal..... [50]

Well, about the only thing you got wrong is that the armored vehicles don’t have radar. The system you are talking about is still very new and has not been fielded across the army, however.
