The Franco-German initiative to develop a "Future Combat Air System" (FCAS) adresses the complex challenges of future air war operations. One of the most complex technological challenges for FCAS will be in the field of the networked operation of sensors and effectors. The European industrial environment is characterised by strong partners with a broad range of capabilities and products, especially in this area, for which FCAS will play an outstanding role in the years to come.

To effectively address these technological and programmatic challenges in an international programme, the German based companies HENSOLDT, Diehl Defence, ESG and Rohde & Schwarz are pleased to announce that they have joined forces to form the German Future Combat Mission System Consortium under German Law.

GERMAN FCMS

The aim of the German FCMS consortium is to assume joint responsibility for the complex topic of the net-worked operation of sensors and effectors within the FCAS network. This will be done in close industrial cooperation with the weapon system companies and the relevant electronics companies of the participating nations. This will consolidate the strong key technologies in German industry. Providing, in addition, a sound basis for the future development of flexible and powerful sensor/effector composite solutions for current and future weapon systems of the European Air Forces.

“Hensoldt is convinced that the combination of the outstanding individual competences in the areas of sensors, effectors, communication and mission systems within this consortium will provide valuable contributions to fulfil the operational needs of the FCAS programme on sensor/effector mission system level. We are very proud to be the lead party of the FCMS consortium and as such represent a strong german player with the capability to design, develop and integrate the sensor/effector network system in strong cooperation with the relevant industry of the participating nations,” said Celia Pelaz, Head of Spectrum Dominance and Airborne Solutions at HENSOLDT.
