Paper Abstract

CECOM technology efforts in support of the RFPI program are presented in this paper. RFPI, a system of systems, will provide early entry light forces with a suite of state-of-the-art sensors and weapons coupled with the command and control capabilities necessary to defeat an enemy armor threat at extended ranges. CECOM’s principal participation in RFPI is through four ATDs/TDs, three sensor-oriented demonstrations and one command and control demonstration. This paper describes, for each technology demonstration, the RFPI requirements to be satisfied, CECOM’s analysis and design approach, and demonstration objectives. RFPI is also a significant participant in Army battlefield digitization efforts associated with the achievement of FORCE XXI objectives. CECOM’s role and goals in support of these efforts are also discussed.
