Mounted Family of Computer Systems

ABOUT MFOCS

Mounted Family of Computer Systems

The US Military has made substantial investments in mounted computing hardware and software, beginning with the Force XXI Battle Command Brigade and Below/Blue Force Tracking programs (FBCB2/BFT) in the mid 90s. DRS has fielded over 200,000 mounted computers since the launch of FBCB2.

Today's Mounted Family of Computer Systems (MFoCS) program has evolved to leverage over 15 years of mission command and battle management combat experience.

Next-Gen Mounted Computing

MFoCS is a modular Mounted Family of Computing Systems which integrates existing Force XXI Battle Command Brigade and Below (FBCB2), future Joint Battle Command-Platform (JBC-P) and Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T) capability into a powerful, modular and flexible hardware architecture.

MFoCS supports Situational Awareness (SA) Command and Control (C2) and maneuver capability using next-generation computing and display hardware. These MFoCS systems include dismountable Tablet PCs, Processor Units, keyboards, removable solid-state storage, Display Units, cabling and installation kits designed for various platforms — all engineered rugged for continuous operation in a wide range of military and combat environments.

Additionally, MFoCS represents a leap forward in size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-C). Depending upon the configuration, MFoCS units cost on average a third less than their currently fielded predecessors, while delivering a 2.5x to 5.5x increase in performance. MFoCS can improve the command and control, maneuverability, logistics and situational awareness of a range of platforms and weapon systems, from ground vehicles to armored vehicles to rotary wing aircraft and more.
