Abstract:

To achieve operational dominance, warfighters need highspeed, interoperable systems that allow quick access and dynamic control of critically needed information. To facilitate the achievement of this objective and to support Army Transformation, the Future Combat Systems FCS program is envisioned as an umbrella system linking large numbers of manned and unmanned platforms into a lethal combat Force. FCS will serve as the foundation for developing a faster, lighter, smarter, and more lethal next-generation force. Space platforms play a vital role in the realization of this concept.
