The ‘Get Well’ Package
  • LMG - FN Para Minimi
  • UGL - H&K AG36 UGL
  • HMNVS:
    • PVS 14b
    • LLM01
  • LWTI

Plus the deployment of PRR as part of a separate programme

Who Gets FIST?
  • Current Assumptions:
    • Approximately 29.5K sets - number being reviewed
    • Tri-Service - Army, RM and RAF Regiment
    • All arms/services in Battle Groups
    • Formation recce
  • Assessment Phase:
    • Indicating ‘fitted for but not’ with approach
    • Will produce a recommended distribution

human factors
Human Factors
  • The soldier (dismounted or in an AFV) will be pre-occupied with finding and attacking the enemy before he himself is killed.
  • His primary senses will be dedicated to that task
  • The information format and presentation must not interfere with or degrade those senses.
  • Heads up and alert, not heads down in a computer.

the human challenges
Information:

How much

How often

When

To whom

In what format

By what medium

Voice primacy

Access:

Security

Flexibility

Self synchronisation vs automation

Decider support not replacement

  • Human contact an enduring requirement
  • Tempo
  • Requires own tactical agility
  • Physical constraints:
    • Load carriage
    • Weight
    • Power (= weight)

sighting issues
Sighting Issues
  • Differing sight requirements for differing weapons
  • Match STA to capability across the section
  • Maximise the benefits of each technology to provide the section, as a system, with equally good day & night performance.
  • Cost: £/power (weight)/weight
fist capabilities
FIST Capabilities
  • Strong emphasis on C4I - the key enabler
  • Protection - a balance between weight saving and greater protection
  • Sustainability - power draw/power management the key issue
  • Lethality - more for less
      • Improved STA/FCS

fist vision
FIST Vision
  • Working within the future digitised Battlespace, FIST will ultimately encompass all that a soldier
    • uses,
    • carries,
    • wears
    • consumes
  • Providing a revolutionary enhancement to the operational effectiveness of those committed to dismounted close combat
