The US Army could delay the Future Combat Systems (FCS) spinout gear due to the programme's restructuring. The spinout gear includes a small sensor-carrying robot dubbed SUG-V, the sensor-equipped Micro Air Vehicle UAV, the Unattended Ground Sensors and FCS battlefield network gear.
The FCS network and spinout-gear efforts will be shifted to a new programme called the Army Brigade Combat Team Modernization (ABCTM).
The lead systems integrator contract with FCS prime Boeing-SAIC is also being renegotiated.
The gear is scheduled to begin deploying in 2011.
