Paper Abstract

As part of its technology development program for the Army's Future Combat System (FCS), the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has been working to develop the enabling communications technology needed to revolutionize the Army's future land force into a network centric force capable of operation at a level of synchronization, mobility, and force effectiveness which has been heretofore unachievable. Key to this network centric operation will be a scalable suite of multiband wireless, mobile adhoc networking devices which operate with directional antennas to provide significant improvements in capacity, Anti-jam, and Low Probability of Detection (LPD). This paper reviews the underlying motivation for this technology development and summarizes the numerous technology investments being made by DARPA under their FCS Communications technology program.
