Leonardo DRS wins MFoCS orders

24th July 2017 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Leonardo DRS has received orders to supply its Mounted Family of Computer Systems (MFoCS) to the US Army, the company announced on 20 July. The $53 million in orders are part of an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract.

The orders call for DRS to deliver the MFoCS for installation on ground combat and tactical vehicles to provide modular computing capabilities for the US Army and other services.

MFoCS' faster processing performance enables support for simultaneous applications as well as the integration of additional sensors and communications networks. The rugged tactical computers meet severe platform environmental requirements.

The contract provides for dismountable tablets, processor units, docking stations, interconnecting cables, and three sizes of ruggedized sunlight-readable touch-screen display units.

MFoCS units are also being installed on military aircraft, tactical operations centres, army watercraft and naval vessels.
