The 70,000th mission command computing system known as the Mounted Family of Computer Systems (MFoCS) has been delivered by Leonardo DRS to the U.S. Army.
“We are honoured to continue supporting the delivery of the next generation of mission critical computing in support of our soldiers and Marines at the point of the spear,” said Bill Guyan, senior vice president and general manager of the Leonardo DRS Land Electronics business unit.
“We take great pride in having designed a mission-critical family of network systems using the latest commercial off-the-shelf technologies that can be confidently relied upon when in harm’s way,” Guyan added.
The delivery marks two decades of providing the U.S. military advanced tactical computing units for ground combat vehicles and command post operations.
MFoCS systems provide ruggedized modular computing capabilities for the U.S Army and other services, giving warfighters the next-generation of computing and display technology with faster processing performance.
This enables support for simultaneous applications as well as the integration of additional sensors and communications networks.
Leonardo DRS Land Electronics business and its partners at the U.S. Army Project Manager – Mission Command, over the last 20 years have designed and built multiple generations of MFoCS, building on each with innovative advancements in technology and supporting the Army’s Network Modernization Plan.
The platform has also continuously met the Army’s current Mounted Computing Operating Environment requirements and is ready to satisfy the Army’s advanced Mounted Mission Command requirements in the future.
