Who We Are

The Army's Program Executive Office for Command, Control and Communications-Tactical (PEO C3T) develops, acquires, fields and supports the Army’s tactical network, a top modernization priority and core enabler of allowing the Army to produce a force that is smaller but still highly capable. Our goal is to deliver a pervasive, integrated network that provides Soldiers the information they need from garrison to the foxhole, while simplifying the network so it is easier to use, train, maintain and sustain. A simplified network will also continue to drive cost savings by combining hardware and other infrastructure, reducing software development efforts and decreasing the field support required to train Soldiers, troubleshoot systems and sustain equipment.

PEO C3T’s first priority remains supporting deployed forces. We are seeing the power of the network today in Afghanistan, where select Brigade Combat Teams are relying on the advanced communications technologies of Capability Set 13 to stay connected and execute their advise-and-assist missions in vast, challenging terrain in support of the Afghan forces.

Over the last decade in support of Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom, the PEO C3T team increased Soldier safety through systems that allow users to view and plot icons on digital maps showing the location of friendly and enemy forces. We brought an unprecedented level of collaboration to commanders who plan operations and experience shared intelligence on a computer screen. We field the satellite communications pipe on which Soldiers utilize those systems and others, such as those for fires and logistics planning and capabilities that sense, locate and respond to indirect fire.

Our staff supports 42 key acquisition programs with expertise in the areas of computer science, program management, engineering, information technology, security, logistics, contracting, procurement, accounting and budgeting. We provide Soldiers with the networks, radios, computers, servers and other hardware and software they require for their missions and integrate those systems so they function as cohesive Capability Sets.

At any given moment, you can find us at the Soldier’s side, whether in combat training centers and remote locations within the continental United States or outside the U.S. As of February 2014 we have supported 99 percent of the Active Army, 93 percent of the Army National Guard, 78 percent of the Army Reserves and 77 percent of Multi-Component units in the Army process known as Unit Set Fielding. Unit Set Fielding is a methodology for the coordinated planning, training and equipping of units that provides an inherently flexible and adaptable model for ensuring readiness across the force.
