Definition/Scope: The XM1204 Non Line of Sight-Mortar (NLOS-M) is the short-to-mid-range indirect fire support component of the Manned Ground Vehicle (MGV) family. It provides networked, responsive, and sustained indirect fire support to the Combined Arms Battalion (CAB) in the FCS (BCT). The NLOS-M fires a suite of 120mm munitions that includes special purpose capabilities to provide a variety of fires on demand, including precision-guided munitions. NLOS-M provides close support and destructive fires for tactical standoff engagement during both offensive and defensive operations. Spanning the spectrum of ground combat and threats, the NLOS-M works in concert with line of sight (LOS), beyond line of sight (BLOS), other non line of sight (NLOS) external and joint capabilities in combat scenarios. The NLOS-M mounts a secondary armament and will incorporate a suite of protection measures to enhance the three person crew's survivability.
