At the other end of the FCS
size spectrum is the Manned Ground Vehicle Chassis Testbed, which demonstrated its agility and speed during circuits of a small test track at APG's Perryman Test Range.
The initial system configuration of the FCS
contained nine manned ground vehicles, four classes of unmanned aerial vehicles, four different unmanned robotic ground vehicles, and numerous unmanned ground sensors, communications networks, and intelligence systems.
selection gives us the opportunity to serve the Army's transformation needs and advance the ground robotics field in support of our troops on the ground.
is composed of The Soldier, supported by an advanced communications and digital information network that connects 18 manned and unmanned ground and aerial vehicles and sensors and munitions.
By teaming with SAIC, we were able to merge the best of each of our concepts to provide the lowest risk approach to achieving initial operational capability in this decade and a rapid evolution to the most capable FCS
force possible," Ron Prosser, vice president of Advanced Space and Communications for Phantom Works said.
We are not only supplying the most technically advanced parts planning and service system available, but also providing our experienced planning team to assist FCS
to consistently exceed record service levels with minimal inventory.
It will provide the network capability that is the backbone of FCS
for both current-force platforms and also for future-force manned and unmanned ground vehicle and unmanned air vehicles.
The agreement between CCC and FCS
is logical for us as a company," said FCS
' CEO, Jacqueline Soechtig.
BAE Systems, as part of the firewalled FCS
One Team, teamed with General Dynamics, is already working to develop and field a family of highly deployable Manned Ground Vehicles that will be key supporting systems linked through the overarching network that will enable the FCS
-equipped Units of Action to effectively complete their missions.
SCOPE will enable FCS
to leverage the advantages of mobile handheld terminals to track and manage cargo in real-time within the cargo terminal.
According to Dennis Muilenburg, Vice President and FCS
Program Manager for Boeing, "Robots and robotic technology are integral components of many FCS
LynuxWorks enables developers to easily move FCS
applications between those that have been developed for standard Linux environments and those targeted for embedded RTOS platforms with no costly or lengthy porting process.
iRobot is charged with developing a next-generation Small Unmanned Ground Vehicle (SUGV) for the groundbreaking FCS
The entirety of FCS
software depends upon the flawless operation of the SOSCOE," said Dennis Muilenburg, Boeing Integrated Defense Systems vice president and general manager of Future Combat Systems.
NEW YORK -- On July 30, 2004, Farm Credit Services of America, ACA (FCS
of America), a System Association headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska, and Rabobank, a Dutch banking cooperative, announced an agreement for Rabobank to acquire all of the shares of FCS
of America from its shareholders.
