The Cassie Combat Assistant Artificial Intelligence was designed to monitor all communications, scanners, and other battlefield intelligence systems so she could help her Marine fight better. She could mark threats or targets for her Marine, most often by highlighting them with a red outline or otherwise clarifying visibility via smart contacts or helmet visors. She could maintain constant communication with nearby weapon systems and keep her Marine informed of where they were aimed, ammunition loads, maintenance requirements, or other things of note. And to keep her Marine from suffering information overload that could degrade combat effectiveness, she sorted through every piece of information she had before sending what was absolutely necessary. That was the most important part of the Cassie system. She had to reliably sort out the information her Marine needed and didn’t need to survive on the ever-changing battlefield of the future.
