According to its definition, a Battle Management Language (BML) is an unambiguous language used to command and control forces and equipment conducting military operations and to provide for situational awareness and a shared, common operational picture. In this paper, we will argue that the use of a BML enables military units to utilize state-of-the-art IT techniques for today's operations. In particular, we will discuss the benefits of using BML for military communications in multinational endeavors, for the use of simulation systems in staff training, for decision support, and for automatic information fusion.
