EADS has released that the Bundeswehr, German Army, has cleared the FAUST
military command and control (C2) system for operational use after passing an
extensive evaluation by German military units deployed in Kosovo (KFOR) and in
Bosnia and Herzegovina (SFOR).
Approximately 150 FAUST-related systems were deployed in the Balkans with German
forces and were given 'very good' rating. The field evaluation was conducted
beginning in October 2004 through January 2005. FAUST is the result of close
cooperation between EADS and Bundeswehr. It is aimed to provide a
state-of-the-art battlefield management command and control information system.
The armed forces of the United Kingdom, Canada and France began taking delivery
of the first FAUST command and control systems in Afghanistan as early as 2003.
The system has logged excellent results through the three different theaters
during critical military operations.
FAUST is the basis of the German Army's newest command and control information
system, called the FuInfoSys, which will be implemented beginning in the late
2006. This digitized C2 system allows automatically updated situational
awareness available for all elements in the battlefield. The precise real-time
picture is provided to commanders and decision-makers.
