Abstract:

This Armored Family of Vehicles Final Report covers the efforts of a Department of the Army Special Task Force from the period June 1986 through August 1987. The objectives of the Armored Family of Vehicles AFV program were to develop and field a force capable of defeating the threat to SIC the 90s, while at the same time significantly reducing system and force operations and support costs. Reduction in costs will be achieved through modularity, component commonality and multiple systems capabilities combined so as to achieve required effectiveness with more survivable, cost effective systems. Support structure savings in both active and Reserve Components and the training support base driven by systemsforce savings will be specifically considered. Both peacetime and wartime structure and systems savings will be addressed. Other goals include increased deployability, ease of training, modular design for future improvement, fewer crew members, reduced battlefield signature and increased battlefield supportability. Keywords Manprint, Light forces, Computer resource management.
