Who We Are
PEO C3T develops, acquires, fields and supports the Army’s tactical communications network – a critical Army modernization priority that brings information dominance to current and future Soldiers. A robust, secure, intuitive network is a key enabler for an agile, expeditionary Force 2025, providing operational flexibility and enhancing leaders’ situational awareness in support of decisive mission command.
PEO C3T is delivering the network to austere regions around the globe, enabling high-speed, high-capacity voice, data and video communications to a user base that includes the Army’s joint, coalition and other mission partners. For example, the Army network is supporting improved coordination across the coalition of different organizations responding to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, by sharing critical information such as the locations and status of treatment units, training updates for health workers and progress that’s been made to contain the disease. The network is also providing communications for enduring U.S. forces in Afghanistan and the region as part of Operation Resolute Support.
Through the integrated Capability Set Fielding and Unit Set Fielding processes, PEO C3T is delivering thousands of tactical network upgrades to 75 Active Component and National Guard units in Fiscal Year 2015. Capability Sets, currently fielding to Army-prioritized infantry and Stryker brigade combat teams, extend mobile network connectivity from the brigade command post all the way down to the dismounted Soldier.
PEO C3T technologies allow Soldiers in tactical vehicles to plan and execute their missions while on the move across the battlefield, tracking friendly and enemy force locations on a digital map. Capabilities fielded by PEO C3T allow Soldiers to digitally call for fires, accurately engage their targets, send text messages reporting enemy locations or requesting medical help, and track unit readiness and equipment availability. PEO C3T is increasing competition in its network and mission command system procurements in order to deliver enhanced capability for the Soldier while lowering costs for the Army.
Aberdeen Proving Ground is the collaborative hub where PEO C3T will continue to innovate for the future. In support of Force 2025, PEO C3T will deliver a pervasive, integrated network that gives Soldiers the information they need from garrison to the foxhole, while simplifying the network so it is easier to use, train, maintain and sustain.
