Robotic Systems Control (FCS-C)

The DARPA FCS-C program is developing communications / networking technologies and notional systems architectures to support the emerging warfighting concepts for the FCS program. The program's goal is to demonstrate new enabling technologies supporting real-time FCS fire control and robotic missions.

Since FCS will require high data rate and low latency communications to operate in a hostile electromagnetic environment, such systems should provide robustness to jamming and significantly improved low probability of detection (LPD) characteristics. FCS-C could meeting these opposing constraints by implementing multi-tiered mobile ad-hoc networks utilizing directional antennas at low-band, and evolving systems such as the Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) also using highly directional antennas at high-band (millimeter-wave frequencies).
