Abstract:

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.
