Annex A. Science And Technology Objectives (STOs)
Army Science and Technology Master Plan (ASTMP 1997)

III.H.03. Enhanced Fiber Optic Guided Missile ATD. By FY00, demonstrate, through a virtual prototype, flight test, and integrated demonstration, an Enhanced Fiber Optic Guided Missile (EFOGM) as the primary "Killer" within the "Hunter-Standoff Killer" concept of the Rapid Force Projection Initiative (RFPI) demonstration. The EFOGM system is a multi-purpose, precision kill weapon system. The primary mission of the EFOGM is to enable a gunner in defilade to engage and defeat threat armored combat vehicles, other high value ground targets, and hovering or moving rotary-wing aircraft that may be masked from line-of-sight direct fire weapon systems. EFOGM is a day, night, and adverse weather capable system that allows the maneuver commander to extend his battle space beyond his line-of-sight to ranges up to 15 kilometers. The EFOGM program will produce a total of 300 missiles and 16 ground stations for use in demonstrations and as residual hardware for extended user evaluation. The program will emphasize missile unit cost/affordability and the integrated process and product development process.

Supports: RFPI, ACTD/AWE.
