Future combat system (FCS) is a network based soldier friendly system which connects eighteen individual weapon system connected with the soldier via network. The prime idea of FCS concept is to support the soldier with real time situational awareness and joint operability among forces to complete a mission successfully with low mortality rate. This system allows the soldier to see first, understand first and act decisively. Basic work done behind the screen is fusing data collected from different reconnaissance vehicle, unattended ground sensors, unmanned aerial vehicles and live assets. System of system common operating environment supports the system. SOSCOE provides reusable software architecture for platform and battle command application via low bandwidth Adhoc network. It uses TINEX workflow engine which minimizes traffic and allows different software to execute flexibly. Since, most of the system operates in remote environment with battery support, power consumption is a serious issue. System with many nodal points has to be encrypted strictly to prevent the network from attacks (simply hacking). Use of instruments with less power consumption, particularly custom design hardware and wireless sensors or sensors will help to tackle this problem.
