"We are all owners. As owners, our feedback matters."
Individual Soldiers and Marines are the foundational element from which all other combat is derived. Individual Soldiers and Marines conduct combat in the rawest sense, pitting themselves against the enemy in face-to-face and hand-to-hand combat. DCS is enthusiastic to have the opportunity to provide Soldiers and Marines with the tools to effectively and efficiently complete their missions.
We directly support development of technology solutions that fuel evolutionary, and often revolutionary, changes to materiel solutions with new systems acquisitions as well as enhancements to legacy systems for use by Soldiers and Marines. We partner with Army and Marine Corps research, development, and acquisition organizations to provide advisory and assistance services to develop, test, and deliver these materiel solutions as fully compliant performance capabilities, tailored to the needs of individual Soldiers and Marines, on schedule and within budget.
DCS personnel apply technical expertise in night vision technologies in support of PEO Soldier and PM Terrestrial Sensors. We are uniquely qualified to provide technical analysis and oversight, as part of the US Army Team, in development of night vision systems spanning the spectrum from image intensifier (I2) systems to laser pointers/illuminators, and thermal imaging systems. We provide engineering and technical analyses, combat development, programmatic planning, developmental and operational test and evaluation support, information assurance support, configuration management and fielding/new equipment training support. Our expertise includes integration of all night vision technologies onto individual Soldiers and their weapons.
US Marine Corps
At the Marine Corps Systems Command, DCS provides engineering and technical support to the Deputy Commander, Systems Engineering, Interoperability, Architectures, and Technology (DC SIAT) on programmatic and systems engineering efforts for the USMC Joint Command and Control Family of Systems (JC2 FoS). The primary focus of these efforts involves the “way ahead” and future state of the JC2 FoS within the Marine Corps, including requirements analysis for implementation of technical capabilities that ensure the interoperability of Marine Air/Ground Task Force (MAGTF) System of Systems (SoS) baseline with the JC2 architecture. DCS Subject Matter Experts contribute to all technical and support activities necessary to assist with the definition, development, and deployment of the Joint system to be interoperable and integrated within the MAGTF SoS baseline. Our knowledge and expertise is also required to develop strategies for the transition of Global Command and Control – Joint (GCCS-J) FoS and implementation of Joint Service Net-Centric initiatives across the USMC. Expanded support includes providing cyber security expertise to the Program Manager, Fire Support Systems (PM FSS) portfolio and clothing and textile subject matter expertise to the Program Manager, Individual Clothing and Equipment (PM ICE).
DCS’s expertise also includes the development of body-worn electronic systems for the Warfighter. Using its patented electro-textile (E-textile) technology, DCS is able to integrate conductive fibers into fabrics at the yarn level and then form complex power and data networks using techniques adapted from conventional garment assembly practices. This permits the production of E-textile garments that do not simply support the electrical network but are the network. Using this technology, DCS has developed a variety of soldier-worn systems that feature embedded sensors, antennas, feedlines, and power & data networks. These systems provide all of the performance features of traditional cabling networks without the associated weight, bulk or snag hazards. Our expertise includes the design, fabrication, and testing of wearable networks for communication, power harvesting, power management, physiological monitoring, navigation, and Tag, Track, and Locate (TTL) applications.
