The Maneuver Battle Lab at Fort Benning Tuesday showed off some of the new combat equipment and technology it has been testing.
The equipment includes the Lightweight Small Arms Technology Cased Telescoped Lightweight Machine Gun and the Maneuver & Fires Integrated Application, or MAFIA, a new smartphone software that acts as a mission command center for soldiers to quickly call for artillery fire or air support, reports the Ledger-Enquirer.
The battle lab works with soldier systems, robotics and weapons systems to help ensure success in military operations, the paper reports.
According to the Ledger-Enquirer, the items shown Tuesday at the McKenna Military Operations in Urban Terrain training area were tested with both computer simulation and live experimentation from Aug. 6 to Sept. 20.
