The PFED uses standard two-way tactical communications and messaging, including the military standard (MIL-STD) 188-220 protocols with either tactical fire direction system (TACFIRE) or variable message format (VMF) messages.
Because the FCS cannon will provide its own technical fire control and limited tactical fire direction for other cannons, there will be no need for battery fire direction centers (FDCs) and platoon and battery operations centers (POCs/BOCs).
SISTIM communicates on a LAN or 188220A protocols, whereas DSTATS only accepts tactical fire direction two-wire or FM radio networks.
