Excerpt: A. Mission Description and Budget Item Justification. The objective of this program is to research and evaluate technologies that will enhance the capabilities of the Future Combat Systems (FCS) and the Future Force and, where feasible, exploit opportunities to enhance Current Force capabilities. Focus is on providing sensor, signal, and information processing technology for advanced reconnaissance, surveillance, and target acquisition (RSTA); ground-to-ground and air-to-ground combat identification (ID), and fire control systems, as well as the fuzing and guidance-integrated fuzing functions in future munitions; and significantly improving the survivability, lethality, deployability, and sustainability of FCS by devising high-power electronic components and technologies for compact, light-weight power and energy storage, conversion and conditioning, and radio frequency (RF)-microwave directed energy (RF-DE) weapons. Project 140 researches, develops, and evaluates Radio Frequency Weapon technology, as well as high power components. Project H15 will provide the ability for joint fires to locate, identify, track, and engage targets as necessary with over all goal of increasing lethality and survivability through the reduction of fratricide. Project H16 will provide the Soldier with decisive new capabilities to locate, identify, and engage battlefield targets in tactical and urban environments. In project SA2, the Army Research Laboratory in collaboration with Institute for Collaborative Biotechnology (ICB) industry partners will conduct applied research focused on biological sensors and biological photovoltaics for power generation. Work in SA2 will exploit breakthroughs in biotechnology basic research transitioning from the ICB, a University Affiliated Research Center, to enable revolutionary Future Force capabilities in sensors, electronics and photonics. Projects SA1 and SA3 fund Congressional special interest items. Work in this PE is related to and fully coordinated with efforts in PE 0602307 (Advanced Weapons Technology), PE 0602705 (Electronics and Electronic Devices), PE 0602709 (Night Vision Technology), PE 0602782 (Command, Control, Communications Technology), PE 0603772 (Advanced Tactical Computer Science and Sensor Technology), and PE 0603008 (Command, Control, Communications Advanced Technology). The cited work is consistent with strategic planning Guidance, the Army Science and Technology Master Plan (ASTMP), the Army Modernization Plan, and the Defense Technology Area Plan (DTAP). Work is performed by the Army Research Laboratory (ARL) and the Communications-Electronics Research, Development, and Engineering Center, Ft. Monmouth, NJ.
