The Army Science Board was tasked to seek revolutionary possibilities for improving deployability as well as effectiveness of future joint ground combat forces. The study focused on the possibilities inherent in the Future Combat System FCS and also considered enhancements possible through the Future Transport Rotorcraft FTR. Study efforts were conducted by four major Panels analyzing Operations, Information Dominance, Sustainment and Support, and Training. The study concludes 1 the FCS concept is sound, but senior level attention is required to ensure technologies are ready for 2006 FCS EMD and 2 Key technologies will significantly improve force projection and combat power. The Information Dominance Panel was tasked to 1 Assess required sensors at National and Theater level 2 Assess the technological opportunity to provide necessary bandwidth for data, voice and video requirements 3 Ascertain the requirements to deny the threat necessary voice and data information 4 Assess the ability to link all via internetted non-line-of-sight communications systems. The Central Recommendation is to develop a Tactical Infosphere TI for the Objective Force. Subordinate recommendations include Develop DTLOMS to support the Tactical Infosphere Establish a program to demonstrate and evaluate TI operational concepts determine technology shortfalls and system needs Establish a test unit, a Bn slice of the Objective Force Establish a simulation test bed and, Build on current digitization capability.
