Leonardo DRS, Inc. has been awarded its third production contract to provide the next-generation of mission command computing systems to the U.S. Army. 

Defense Information Technology Contracting Office of the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) awarded the contract, which is valued at more than $105 million.

The Mounted Family of Computer Systems (MFoCS) II are modular, scalable systems that will support the Army’s current modernization strategy for ground combat vehicles, combat service support vehicles and command posts. 

Leonardo DRS is in its third year of a potential ten-year contract supporting requirements for U.S. Army Mounted Mission Command and Mounted Computing Operating Environment (MCOE).

The MFoCS II system is a family of common computing and display systems that consolidates a range of programs and military computing users. The system supports the continued fielding and upgrades of the Army’s Joint Battle Command – Platform and features critical system capability upgrades, cybersecurity improvements and multi-touch displays. 

This tactical server provides a fully integrated hardware, software, and network system supporting Blue Force Tracking on Army and U.S. Marine Corps vehicle platforms.  MFoCS II systems also host an industry leading embedded cyber security architecture.

“We are proud that MFoCS continues to play an important role in the Army’s Network Modernization efforts to bring users the latest in situational awareness on the battlefield,” said Bill Guyan, senior vice president and general manager of the Leonardo DRS Land Electronics business.  

“MFoCS is a vital component of the Mission Command suite of integrated capabilities used across the U.S. Army and Marine Corps ground fleets, and our team members have designed and manufactured a powerful, reliable and affordable edge capability that soldiers have come to rely upon.”

Work on this contract will be performed at the Leonardo DRS Land Electronics facility in Melbourne, Florida.
