PM MC - Project Manager Mission Command

Mission

To provide intuitive, adaptive mission command and situational awareness capabilities for the command post and platform that enable mission execution by commanders and leaders at all levels to be more effective, agile and decisive.

Description

Project Manager Mission Command (PM MC) develops, deploys and sustains integrated mission command and situational awareness capabilities to the Army and Joint forces. PM MC recently merged with Joint Battle Command-Platform (JBC-P) to create a single, enhanced organization that is providing interoperable command post and mounted capabilities to the Soldier.

PM MC delivers capabilities across the warfighting functions of movement and maneuver, command and control, fires, sustainment, protection, intelligence and engagement. Implementing the Army’s Common Operating Environment, PM MC fields the Command Post Computing Environment (CP CE) and, the Mounted Computing Environment (MCE) while facilitating interoperability between CP CE, MCE and other CEs. PM MC uses an agile and effective development process to achieve both near-term deliveries to current systems and longer-term development to enhance mission command capabilities.
