Military operations in subsurface service structures represent a big challange for Armed Forces. Complex underground operations are characterized by a lack of lighting and ventilation. A hybrid military attack in such underground structures quickly can bring the operational forces to their performance limits. Hence, it is vital to know the exact positioning of the own armed forces to avoid situations where soldiers open fire on their own (blue-on-blue).
"Zentrum am Berg" of the Montan University Leoben will serve as the testing environment.
