原文:

The test was made more complex through an electronic warfare attack that jammed one of the four radars in the relay chain, but the self-healing network still completed the relay of information so the proper Patriot launchers could engage the threats.

This was a much different outcome than the first limited user test of IBCS, which suffered multiple software challenges and resulted in the program being delayed by four years.

The U.S. Army is scheduled to complete this latest limited user test by the end of September and, if all goes well, make a production decision in November, officials said. The Army plans to put the program through the Initial Operational Test and Evaluation phase in a year and begin fielding it in fiscal 2022.

中譯:

由於電戰攻擊造成中繼鏈4具雷達其中1具遭阻斷,讓此次測試變得更為複雜,不過,這套自行修復網絡仍完成了資訊傳輸,是以,正常的愛國者飛彈發射器均能接戰威脅來源。

第1次進行整合作戰指揮系統有限度用戶測試時,因遇到多重軟體問題,導致該計畫延宕4年之久,此次測試結果與之大相徑庭。

官員表示,美國陸軍預定在今年9月底要完成此次最新的有限度用戶測試,倘一切順利的話,11月則作出生產決定。陸軍規劃以1年初始作戰測試暨評估的期程來推動此計畫,並於2022財年開始部署交付作業。
