Over the course of nearly twenty years, Leonardo DRS has fielded over 200,000 mounted computers. The Mounted Family of Computer Systems (MFoCS II) represents the continued design evolution of an innovative mission-critical platform computer, built with enough capabilities to anticipate the soldiers’ future needs. These tactical computers, reliably perform for the warfighter in the most extreme environments. The hardware is battle proven, low risk and can support the U.S. Army Mounted Computing Environment requirements now and into the future.
MFoCS II protects, connects and enables mission command and expeditionary command post performance. New Edge-AssuredTM CyberSecurity capabilities underpin the tactical computer’s embedded security architecture. This security architecture provides the Mission-Critical computer cyber-hardened protection at its core. Integrating voice, data, and video, combined with an upgraded next generation Xeon processor unit, along with 32GB of RAM, enables the manipulation of modern warfighting applications. This operationally improves the speed of command and functionality on the battlefield. All of the displays are multi-touch with gloves, vital for soldiers carrying out missions safely.
The improved MFoCS II system easily integrates with other sensors, systems and applications. It provides the Army with an upgrade bay to add mission functionality such as A-PNT or EW. The machine also has additional storage capacity to support supplementary map data or edge analytics. The improved MFoCS II C5 system facilitates the utilization of many force-multiplying functions like connecting multiple types of radios, remotely controlling them from the commander’s display unit, radio x-banding, threat detection sensor integration, camera integration, vehicle bus integration, power sub-system control, among many others, providing leaders all of the necessary information, at the right time, to make the right decision when mission success depends on it.
Modernization objectives like these are priorities for Leonardo DRS because they are priorities for the U.S. Army and for the Department of Defense. What started as a single-purpose computer, has now become a modular, scalable, multi-purpose Mission Command system that can host multiple existing and future capabilities. This improved and evolutionary family of Mission Critical computers is constantly striving to offer an advanced C5 capability today, while ensuring there is enough capacity to address modernization objectives of tomorrow. This new powerful mounted compute platform offers a SWaP reducing, low technical risk, Mounted Computing Environment solution with battle proven reliability. MFoCS II address many modernization requirements while innovatively bridging the gap to the next generation of Mission Command. As the future brings autonomy, AI, and other opportunities, MFoCS II has the capacity and is prepared for those opportunities and is even equipped to handle them in the present.
