The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, also known as DARPA, awarded
Raytheon a contract worth $8 million to develop and demonstrate networking and
communications technologies for future insertion into US Army's Future Combat
Systems (FCS) and other Army platforms and systems.
The DARAP-sponsored program goal is to create a net-centric system capable of
high data rate transfer and low latency communications needed for real-time FCS
fire control and robotic missions. Due to hostile electromagnetic environments
where FCS systems would be deployed, its communication system must provide
protection against jamming and low probability of interception.
The approach selected to meet the FCS goals is a multi-tiered mobile ad hoc
network (MANET) utilizing both directional antennas at low-band and highly
direction antennas at high-band.
