8th April 2019 - 08:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Leonardo DRS has received its first production delivery order from the US Army for the Mounted Family of Computer Systems (MFoCS) II, the company announced on 3 April.

The MFoCS II is a mission command computing system that supports the army’s modernisation strategy for ground combat vehicles, combat service support vehicles and command posts.

The $132.1 million delivery order is part of a contract awarded to Leonardo DRS in May 2018. Leonardo DRS will provide the army with dismountable tablets, processor units, docking stations, keyboard units, interconnecting cables and multiple sizes of ruggedised sunlight-readable multi-touch-screen display units, to support the continued fielding and upgrades of the army’s Joint Battle Command – Platform (JBC-P).

MFoCS II features critical system capability upgrades, cybersecurity improvements and multi-touch displays. In addition, there are significant performance enhancements of the platform computing server as the army continues to improve the JBC-P systems used for tactical situational awareness and global Blue Force Tracking and in-transit visibility logistics tracking.
