US Army Picks RTM for Itís Future Combat System Program

6/21/2002 - Integrated Chipware today announced that the US Army, in conjunction with DARPA, has selected RTM to manage requirements development for the Future Combat System (FCS). The Future Combat System is a critically important program that will transform the way the US Army deploys troops and engages adversaries. It is a true ď systems of systemsĒ management challenge.

RTM was selected because of its scalability and robustness. The FCS is a highly collaborative environment that is web-based. The US Army wanted a collaborative solution that could keep a complete and easy to access history of all requirements, changes to those requirements and all pertinent discussions regarding requirement development change.

Initially, the Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) will host the RTM database at Ft. Knox, KY. Users, Army wide, will have the ability to review requirements documents generated from RTM and make comments or suggest changes on any requirement, via the Web. Personnel from TRADOC will review the discussions and suggested changes and will change requirements based on the merit of the suggestion. Once changes are made, a new baseline of requirements will be generated and the resulting documents will be posted on the Web for review.
