Purpose

• To provide industry awareness of FCS MGV PDR design
  technologies and allow industry to benefit from the technical
  maturity of FCS MGV program from a software, hardware,
  and systems architecture design perspective


• Not the overall solution for GCV, but some technologies may
  be applicable


• Industry should focus on the Final GCV RFP which will
  contain all requirements

Inherent Capabilities of the MGV Design (Cont)

 • Transportability; 2 MGVs with AT mine kit on a C-17 was achievable;
   however, 3 on a C-17 did not provide a practical solution
 • Slave Start
    – MGVs was able to slave start MGVs, MULEs and current force
      equipment
    – Current force systems would not be able to slave start MGVs
 • Reverse Obstacle Crossing; design supported 0.7 meter obstacle crossing
 • Cross Leveling Timeline
    – MGVs could externally transfer fuel at 7 gallons per minute
    – Design provided the ability to efficiently transfer fuel to UGV, UAV, and
      other MGVs

• Enable Small Units
 – Network connectivity to Soldiers improves agility of action
 – Integrated employment of ground & air robotic systems expands operations in time &
   space
 – Integration of assets from Echelons Above Brigade increases combat power
 – Task organizing at lowest level leverages the versatility of our mix of forces

• Develop the Situation Through Action

  – Modular design reconfigured to support different lift assets and mission profiles

• Lethality
  – Lethal self-protection with each variant able to defeat like systems
  – Hosts non-lethal systems to enable operations among population

• Force Protection
  –   With blast protection equivalent to MRAP
  –   Base level protection scalable to threat and mission
  –   Ability to observe 360 degrees (closed or open hatch)
  –   Integrate improved protection measures when they are ready (passive and active)
  –   Fire protection equal to or better than any current combat platform

        Operational Design Principles (cont)

• Mobility
 – Negotiates the confined spaces presented in complex urban terrain
 – Cross country mobility precludes being restricted to existing road networks
 – First GCV increment provides mobility equivalent to the Bradley with better protection


• Sustainability
 –   Reduces the BCT sustainment burden (reliability, availability, maintainability, energy efficiency)
 –   Initial increment of GCV has an availability rate equivalent to Stryker
 –   Consumes less fuel than current vehicles of similar weight and power
 –   Provides exportable electrical power and battery charging capability for Soldier systems


• Network Integration & Interoperability
 –   Hosts the Army’s battle command network systems
 –   Growth potential in electrical and computing power
 –   Retain mission functionality with a degraded or interrupted network
 –   Facilitates Soldier integration in the network, employment of robotic systems, access to joint capabilities

Challenge


 •   Original Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV) design is 40+ year old technology.

 •   Current requirements now place greater emphasis on force protection,
     system survivability, and mobility

 •   Still want “balanced” design:
      •   Vehicle weight
      •   Vehicle payload
      •   Transportability
      •   Vehicle stability, handling, and safety
      •   Fuel Efficiency and range
      •   Reliability
      •   Open system architecture

 •   GCV must have the capacity for future growth in capabilities

Acquisition Decision Memorandum (ADM)


 • The FCS (BCT) ADM, dated 23 JUN 09, directed the establishment
   of the GCV as its own Major Defense Acquisition Program (MDAP)

 • The Army is directed to capture the design efforts on the Manned
   Ground Vehicle (MGV) program for potential leverage on the GCV
   program

 • The Army is directed to conduct a capability gap assessment to
   develop the requirements for the GCV program

 • A Material Development Decision (MDD) is targeted in 2010

Ground Combat Vehicle Operational Design
Principles

  “Develop new, Ground Combat Vehicle program based on revised requirements”
 •   Versatility
      –   Start by replacing the Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV) (Bradley) with capability to expand to other mission
          packages (e.g., Command and Control)
      –   Meet Protection, Network, and Mobility requirements in a single vehicle
      –   Operate across full range of military operations
      –   Design with growth potential to adapt as technologies mature and enemies learn
 •   Force Protection
      –   Provide large IED, MRAP-like blast protection
      –   Provide scalable protection based on threat and mission
      –   Provide 360 degree observation and protection
 •   Network Integration & Interoperability
      –   Host the Army’s battle command network systems
      –   Facilitate Soldier integration in the network and access to joint capabilities
 •   Mobility
      –   Negotiate the confined spaces presented in complex urban terrain
      –   Facilitate cross-country mobility
 •   Sustainability
      –   Meet availability rate equivalent to Stryker
      –   Consume less fuel than current vehicles of similar weight and power
 •   Transportability
      –   Transportable worldwide by air, sea, highway, and rail

GCV Preliminary Program Planning



 Programmatic Imperatives
 • Early and frequent communication between government and potential bidders
 • Bidders perform design concepts and trade studies
 • Competing contractors will conduct design work and establish relationships with
   sub-contractors prior to contract award
 • Design and begin build of sub-system prototypes
 • Initial design templates are complete before entering the design phase


 Feedback desired
 • Ability to meet requirements with a medium risk schedule
 • Time needed to deliver sub-system prototypes (# months after contract award)?
 • Time needed to attain PDR level design (# months after contract award)?
 • Time needed to attain CDR level design (# months after contract award)?
 • How to deliver production representative vehicle in 5.5 to 7 years?

                                                                                                  GCV Details

Schedule Key Elements: Subsystem
Competitive Testing

 • Competitive testing may include:
    - Automotive test rig
    - 360 degree situational awareness appliqué
    - Turret on firing test stand
    - Hit Avoidance System (HAS) integration concept

 • Building subsystems early allows for validation of the
 vehicle designs and will improve the robustness of the
 prototype vehicles




 Subsystem Competitive Testing is Concurrent with Overall Vehicle Design

     approach, a class of ground combat vehicles that will be integrated into the
     Army’s Brigade Combat Teams (BCT) … starting with a lead vehicle
     development effort.
 •   Describe your firms experience and corporate knowledge in the
     development and integration of combat vehicles that are expected to
     achieve highly challenging interoperability, (vehicle and crew) survivability,

     objectives.
 •   Firms that have or can develop and obtain the expertise, capacity, facilities
     and qualifications for potentially managing, developing and producing an
     increasing number of varying ground combat vehicle platforms.



        Lead vehicle design is critical in establishing the foundation architecture

• For each section 3 requirement, verification requirements
  (method) are shown in the same row with clarifications and
  guidance
• For now, each requirement is referenced by its own section
  number (e.g., 3.1.2.3.4 …)
• Most of the Objective requirements accompany Threshold
  within the same reference ID (paragraph)
• Constraints (Design Characteristics) section captures
  requirements that primarily apply across all functional
  areas
   – Example: Unless otherwise stated, performance at Full Combat Capable
     configuration (including all kits and GFE/GFM) applies to all A-Spec
     requirements

GCV Performance Specification (Con’t)

• Growth
   – A-Spec defines specific growth requirements as enablers for future
     (post fielding) upgrades
   – Growth requirements intend to provide for and accommodate
     implementation of upgrades to GCV after fielding across multitude
     of capabilities (e.g., Survivability, Network, Computing/Information
     Systems, Combat ID, Non-Lethal, IED defeat, etc.)
       • Ability to integrate significant improvements and implement additional
         capabilities (post fielding) without major system modifications is of
         paramount importance to the initial design and fundamental
         architecture (physical, thermal, electrical, electronics, software) of the
         system
   – Growth requirements ask for designing some of the capabilities
     delivered as part of the initial design and fielding of the vehicle

                Design with future growth in mind!
