Typical trends in modern warfare, which directly affect the operation of artillery reconnaissance control points, can generally be considered: the transition to a network-centric concept of warfare; the growth of spatial scope and dynamism of armed struggle; globalization of intelligence, control and navigation systems; the growing role of information warfare, cybernetic actions in conflicts and wars of the future; reduction of timelines for preparation for military operations; ensuring a qualitatively new level of information compatibility of reconnaissance, control, navigation, command and control systems and various strike weapons and systems; integration of reconnaissance, destruction, control and electronic warfare means into electronic-fire systems, are provided with information and are managed in a time scale close to real. When assessing the effectiveness of the use of an artillery reconnaissance control point, it is necessary to identify the degree of dependence on objective and subjective factors, and establish a mechanism for their influence on functioning.
The article discusses the factors affecting the functioning of artillery reconnaissance control points, which are proposed to distinguish between external and internal. An analysis of their interaction.
The disruption of the functioning of the artillery reconnaissance control posts will lead to the impossibility of centralized control of the artillery reconnaissance system and individual intelligence agencies. Therefore, it is imperative to take into account the influence of these factors in order to function effectively and, accordingly, effectively fire the enemy with artillery as a whole.
The results of the analysis of these factors can be used in the formation of performance indicators for the functioning of artillery reconnaissance control centers.
An analysis of the interaction of forces and means of artillery reconnaissance and fire weapons of the leading, militarily, countries of the world provides an opportunity to study the development of weapons and military equipment to ensure the creation of reconnaissance and information subsystems of rocket troops and artillery.
