The JPEO-CBD, in conjunction with other members of the defense community, is actively assessing future system architectures for Major Defense Acquisition Programs (MDAPs) such as the Future Combat Systems (FCS). Sensors, networks and information superiority are key elements of FCS, and the JPEO will provide the critical capability that enables complete situational awareness of CB hazards. After a brief overview of the JPEO-CBD program, this paper discusses early insight into how FCS operations and platforms affect CB sensors. Key challenges will be highlighted, such as sensor/platform integration, broad spectrum detection, and sensor performance.
