Battle Command Migration

“Partnering Day”

15 November 05

Technical Director

PM Ground Combat C2

[email protected]


Purpose l.jpg

Purpose

  • Present an initial overview of Battle Command (BC) migration beyond ABCS 6.4 for near and mid-term

    • Define technical vision for future BC systems

    • Maintain relevance of fielded ABCS systems via key technology insertions

    • Maximize ROI by leveraging today’s capabilities into tomorrow

  • Establish a system of systems perspective:

    • Across all PEO C3T programs and Joint Interfaces

    • Technology improvements for interoperability and integration

    • Goal is life-cycle cost reduction

Provide a System of Systems Path Forward

What have we learned l.jpg

What Have We Learned?

  • Disparate data formats

  • Interoperability

  • Utilization of Bandwidth

  • Collaboration

  • Difficult to configure

  • Too many systems to train

  • Stovepipe Design

    • Different user interface for each system

    • Many servers providing similar functionality

    • More expensive to maintain

    • Training impacts

Must leverage current capability to address these issues as ABCS evolves toward JC2 and FCS.

What is cpof l.jpg

What is CPOF?

$62M being

Invested by DARPA

Since 1998

  • An executive level decision support system that provides situational awareness and collaborative tools tosupport decision making, planning, rehearsal and execution management.

  • Designed to allow operators to interactively collaborate, and share workspaces and plans.

CPOF

Servers

CPOF Workstation

CPOF Network Fielded

Army and DARPA

"We do virtually every rehearsal using the CPOF

tool." MG Peter Chiarelli
