Abstract: After their introduction, technical systems designed for Situational Awareness have changed the possibilities on the battlefield. Today, Swedish tanks use a system known as the TCCS. This system offers many advantages to a tank platoon, but does it also bring disadvantages? This essay examines pros and cons with the TCCS. To find these the author uses a Swedish Armed Forces analyze model in a comparative study. The comparison is between a platoon with the TCCS and one platoon without it.The author has found that the use of TCCS reduces the risk of friendly fire amongst the platoon; this will serve as an example of one of the advantages the author has identified. One of the disadvantages of using TCCS identified in this study is that a platoon commander might use less personal leadership because of the technical potentials of the system.The conclusion of this study is that a user of this system should take note of and reflect about the way he or she uses it. By doing so, the user can get the desired effect out of this technical system.
