In network based operations (NbO), critical decisions can be optimised thanks to a better information sharing between commanders. The Phoenix 2007 experimentation applies the NbO concept to the platoon level. The experimentation introduces collaborative services for video sharing and decision making in order to cope with urban area, tactical mobility and uncertain environment. They open new spectrum of capabilities (short loops between actors, experts reachback, remote navigation for drones or robots...), based on communication and information advantage. For the experimental purpose, these services rely on a system of tactical networks which involve remote sensors, soldiers, vehicles, robots, drones, and expert reachbacks. A Information Support Team (IST) is also introduced to filter and route the traffic flows towards end users. This team is also in charge of deploying and controlling sensors, robots and drones. The experimentation uses basic infantry missions to assess these capabilities, by measuring coordination between actors, traffic loads on the network as well as ergonomic factors. Results reveal that even if robotic sensors and drones do not slow down the pace of operations, good coordinations combined with a versatile IST commanding are required. At system level, network mobility and robustness are required to operate efficiently.
