ARMY SCIENCE BOARD WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
The Army Science Board was tasked to 1 Characterize the level and nature of lethality, survivability, logistical and information systems for command, control, communications and computer improvements that must be achieved to yield a more effective Objective Force Soldier across the operational spectrum. Evaluate connectivityinterface between Future Combat System variants and the Objective Force Soldier. 2 Map the technology from present to future that would obtain the improvements as described above. 3 Include in the technology roadmap an assessment of current and projected Research Development and Acquisition efforts. Highlight those areas where modest investments now may yield significant capabilities in soldier effectiveness, weight reduction, power efficiency and affordability of soldier systems. 4 Recommend alternative science and technology strategies that can provide the level of improvements outlined above. Stratify the level of cost, technical and schedule risk associated with each alternative. Address emerging technologies from academia, industry and other government agencies. The ASB responded by identifying specific goals, highlighting the uncertainty in connectivity, identifying top effectiveness gains and preparing ST investmentactivity roadmaps. Each ASB subpanel provided specific recommendations corresponding to subpanel topics Future Threats, Conceptual Framework, Analysis, Fightability echnologies, Weight Considerations, Power System Technologies, Manpower and Personnel, ST Investment Strategy, Affordability and Cost Control, Senior Officer Observations.
