Who gets fist
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

  • The Need

  • Increasing Combat Effectiveness

  • Summary


Increasing combat effectiveness
Increasing Combat Effectiveness

  • Man in the Loop

  • Environmental Factors

  • Physical Realities

  • Lethality: a Case Study


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.

200m, Enemy Infantry, better text the blokes!


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

Physical realities
Physical Realities

  • 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

  • Summary


Increasing combat effectiveness4
Increasing Combat Effectiveness

  • Need for a systems approach

  • No ‘killer application’

  • Soldier-centric

  • Managing real estate and weight

  • Integration

Soldier Systems

Integrated with FIST under the FIST Assessment Phase.

Battlegroup Systems

Integration with FIST investigated by the Soldier System Co-ordination Design Authority Process

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
