Paper Abstract

The Rapid Force Projection Initiative Technology Program is a major Science and Technology program which will evaluate and demonstrate advanced technology products for early entry force application. The RFPI melds a system of multispectral forward sensors (Hunters), robust command, control and communications (C3), and advanced weapons (Standoff Killers) into an integrated force which is effective and survivable against heavy armor. The RFPI serves as a conduit to insert Science and Technology products into the U.S. Army, drawing upon the resources of the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command battle Labs and extensive troop involvement during technology evaluation and demonstration, which acts to assure rapid acceptance of new solutions for light forces. This paper summarizes these efforts.
