Wars of the future will involve the integration of the system of the human–machine environment. This will not only be an intelligent war, but also a smart war. It will challenge the relevant formal mathematical calculations and the logical calculations used in traditional thinking about combat. It will require a new type of calculation featuring a game system that combines the complementary advantages of humans, machines, and the environment. Based on the background of intelligent war, this paper discusses the concept, connotation, and model of deep situational awareness, and introduces the role of this model in wars of the future. Deep situational awareness solves the three important bottlenecks of interpretability, learning, and common sense in Artificial Intelligence. This paper also discusses the challenges to situational awareness in wars of the future, including the uncertainty of the cooperation between humans and computers in the battlefield. Understanding the mechanisms of intelligent human–computer integration and effective means of cooperation will become key factors affecting future wars.
