Joint Battle Command-Platform

Joint Battle Command-Platform (JBC-P) is the Army’s next generation friendly force tracking system, equipping Soldiers with a faster satellite network, secure data encryption and advanced logistics.

Description

JBC-P includes an intuitive interface with features like touch-to-zoom maps and drag-and-drop icons. JBC-P interoperates with the Nett Warrior handheld device, managed by PEO Soldier, delivering situational awareness capabilities to dismounted Soldiers. JBC-P incorporates the common hardware solution known as the Mounted Family of Computer Systems (MFoCS), standardized tactical computers that are scalable and tailorable to the mission and vehicle. Encompassing options from a detachable tablet to a fully loaded, vehicle-mounted workstation, MFoCS runs not only JBC-P but other software applications, reducing size, weight and power demands. JBC-P builds on the situational awareness capability known as Force XXI Battle Command Brigade and Below/Blue Force Tracking, which is integrated on more than 120,000 platforms and is authorized and fielded to every Brigade Combat Team in the Army.
