During the maneuvers, the mortar divisions of the protected infantry battalion of Princess I / 2 and the knight group Almansa II / 10 were involved. In addition, the ERESMA project (expansion of the network of sensors for fire support missions) was included in the exercise, which shows a high degree of consolidation in the brigade. On this occasion, Leopard 2E main battle tank teams, teams of sniper rifles and teams of information gathering were prepared and validated. The purpose of this activity was to train these teams to use the toe and observation elements of their combat platforms to achieve goals.
The sensors increase the action capacity of the Advanced Artillery Observer by expanding its range of action on the battlefield thanks to the technological possibilities offered by the brigades. In this way, by expanding the sensor network by the capacity that can be assigned to the fire protection system, the possibilities are increased to apply fires in good time in any situation.
