Paul Scharre’s new book on autonomous weapons begins with an account of an incident he experienced while on patrol as a US Army Ranger in Afghanistan in A young girl of five or six years old herding a couple of goats approached Scharre’s team while they were taking cover in the mountains.

    Future Combat Systems can weigh no more than 16 to 18 tons.2 The Army is resorting to an array of approaches to squeeze weight out of the force structure.

Critical of the Army’s existing force structure as revealed by the difficulty of the Task Force Hawk deployment to Kosovo, General Shinseki pushed to improve the Army’s strategic mobility by equipping it with systems that possessed the robustness of Cold War heavy systems and the strategic deployability of light systems.

    The generals called the effort Future Combat Systems, or FCS, and figured the whole thing might cost $92 billion. But, it turns out, just about every assumption the Army had about its future was.   The Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics issued an acquisition decision memorandum (ADM) today that implements decisions regarding the Future Combat Systems Brigade Combat Team (FCS BCT) program announced by Secretary Robert M. Gates in April. FCS is the Army's largest modernization program.

Several types of manned vehicles as well as unmanned aerial and ground vehicles, missile launchers, and communications links would be developed and procured within a single program known as the Future Combat Systems (FCS) program.

This study by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). The AoA tasker [3] established the alternatives, and the SAG approved their definition. Conforming to policy, the alternatives include the Base Case and a Product Improved Stryker BCT option for comparison against the FCS program. These are summarized in figure 1, and defined in detail in the Army FCS UA Systems Book [4].

The Future Combat Systems (FCS) program was the largest and most ambitious planned acquisition program in the Army's history.

The FCS was intended to field not just a system, but an entire brigade, a system of systems, with novel technologies integrated by means of an advanced wireless by: ground combat systems for America’s Warfighters. PROJECT MANAGER. The Army conducted an Analysis of Alternatives (AoA) to provide for integration of future radio and network systems, as well as improved medical equipment packages for the Medical Evacuation variant.

Program costs have remained steady and constant: $ billion (Fiscal Year constant dollars) for Research, Development, Test and Evaluation (RDT&E) and procurement for 15 Brigade Combat Teams over a two-decade period.

ARMY AL&T A Look at the Future Combat Systems (Brigade Combat Team)Program — An Interview With MG Charles A. Cartwright T he Future Combat Systems (FCS) Brigade Combat Team (BCT) program is the cornerstone of the Army’s modernization effort.

The FCS(BCT) consists of a family of manned and unmanned systems. The Future Combat System (FCS) program which comprises 14 integrated weapon systems and an advanced information network is the centerpiece of the Army's effort to transition to a lighter, more.

The Future Combat System (FCS) program is the centerpiece of the Army's effort to transition to a lighter, more agile, and more capable combat force. By law, GAO is to report annually on the FCS program. Also, law requires the Department of Defense (DOD) to hold a milestone review of the FCS program, now planned for   It's hard to overstate the disastrous effect that the Future Combat Systems (FCS) program has had on Army acquisition.

Book Description: The U.S. Army’s Future Combat Systems program aimed to field an ambitious system of systems, with novel technologies integrated via an advanced wireless network. The Army’s Next Generation Combat Vehicle (NGCV) program has ambitious goals that will require development of new technological capability that ranges from autonomous operations to.

To become a more responsive and dominant combat force, the U.S. Army is changing its strategy from bigger and stronger weapons to faster and more agile ones. The Future Combat Systems (FCS)--which the Army calls the "greatest technology and integration challenge ever undertaken"--is expected to meet the Army's transformational objectives.

As the annual budget process continues on Capitol Hill, Congress has again reduced funding for Future Combat Systems (FCS)--the U.S. Army's primary modernization program- .
