Paper Abstract

The Future Force Warrior (FFW) equipped Small Combat Unit (SCU) is characterized as a platoon level organization that uses soldier borne system (SBS) components, supplemental SCU equipment, sensors, robotics, a distributed information database, and networked communications to execute collective War Fighter functions not achievable by any other SCU. These new functions introduce complex battlefield information management and display requirements. The thrust of FFW is to provide the ability to process and disseminate information, and determine how to display the information effectively to the soldier. The FFW SBS System development requires continuous integration of capabilities to increase functionality while reducing weight, cube/bulk, space, power consumption, and logistical footprint. This paper addresses these complex issues and explains the information available to the soldiers.
