Integrated Platform C4ISR Management System
C4InSight™ is the latest in DRS-TS’s line of ultra-rugged, MIL-STD qualified hardware and software solutions that builds on its legacy as the premier supplier of over 200,000 platform computing devices and peripherals for the US Army Force XXI Battle Command Brigade and Below (FBCB2) program. At the core of C4InSight™ is the DRS Data Distribution Unit (DDU) and the Mission Command Software Suite (MCSS). These components can be employed to interoperate with existing platform displays and computers, or can be augmented by a suite of available DRS-TS products, such as the Joint Platform Tablet (JPT) computer and Scorpion™ handheld devices.
In addition to providing new capabilities to integrate various platform C4ISR devices, C4InSight™ also achieves significant reductions in Size, Weight, Power and Cost (SWaP-C). The modular, open architecture is consistent with the Army’s Vehicular Integration for C4ISR/EW Interoperability (VICTORY) efforts as well as the US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) Mobile Distributed C4ISR Architecture (MDCA) objectives, and provides a scalable, cost effective and integrated C4ISR management system to meet current tactical platform modernization objectives as well as future platform C4ISR requirements.
First deployed to meet the C4ISR management requirements of USSOCOM’s Family of Special Operations Vehicles (FOSOV), C4InSight™ addresses the challenges of tactical platform C4ISR modernization with greater flexibility in the allocation of already constrained space on their vehicles. C4InSight™’s capability to control and manage an array of peripherals allows for the reduction of redundant hardware and enables device consolidation on platforms where installing additional hardware is extremely limited, such as the US Army’s fleet of tracked combat vehicles.
