PM MC - Project Manager Mission Command

TMC

Mission

Provide the core C2 user environment and net-centric collaborative framework and capabilities for Army Mission Command and the Mission Command Collapse Migration Strategy. Direct and resource acquisition management, development, deployment, fielding and training and sustain 24 hour support for the worldwide deployment of the Army's and other operational forces.

Description

Tactical Mission Command (TMC), under Project Manager Mission Command (PM MC), Program Executive Office Command, Control and Communications Tactical (PEO C3T), is a suite of Project Manger Mission Command (PM MC) products that provide Army and joint community commanders and their staff a human-centered collaborative capability with integrated Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), a user-defined common operational picture (COP) and real-time situational awareness. In addition, they supply a tactical SharePoint portal and Mission Command (MC) and Coalition interoperability to support Mission Staff functions. TMC supports Army Battle Command System (ABCS) interoperability, data management, and enterprise services that include e-mail, Active Directory, security, data backup and failover capabilities.

Family of Products

  • Battle Command Sustainment Support System (BCS3) supports sustainment operations by providing a COP with map-centric functionalities that enable end users to access, scale, and tailor critical sustainment information in near-real time. Specifically, BCS3 offers its user's access to a Logistics Reporting Tool (LRT) that provides a standardized format for submission of sustainment status reports, in-transit visibility (ITV) of supplies and equipment in the distribution pipeline, and asset visibility (AV) of resources with the units and supply points.
  • Battle Command Sustainment Support System Node-Management (BCS3-NM) is a distribution management software application derived from the "core" BCS3 application, employing strategic extensions to current BCS3 capabilities, integration of additional joint ITV and AV data sources and with improved ease of use. BCS3-NM provides a COP for distribution management focused on supply storage and distribution nodes, providing capabilities to view and manipulate data from both a map and in data tables.
  • Command Workstation- PM MC has begun to consolidate all of its system capabilities in sustainment, maneuver, fires, airspace, and air defense systems onto one common platform to create the Command Workstation. The Command Post of the Future (CPOF) application, which is the Army's gold standard for human-centered collaboration, sets the foundation of this platform since it provides users with the capability to simultaneously collaborate and share data among operators in near real-time.
  • Command Web - PM MC is also working to establish the BC Web service, which will provide users with enhanced collaboration, visualization, and analysis and planning using a thin-client, or lightweight, Web-enabled environment.
  • Command Post of the Future (CPOF)- CPOF is the Army's primary Command and Control (C2) system that allows commanders and their staff the ability to achieve enhanced operational effectiveness by enabling broad human collaboration.
  • Joint Convergence/Multilateral Interoperability Programme (MIP)- MIP enables Coalition commanders to exchange C2 information among countries.

Major Initiatives

CPOF is providing the maneuver foundation for the Command Workstation, a central piece of MC Collapse strategy, which seeks to consolidate MC systems. CPOF was chosen as the best platform to increase commanders and their staffs' effectiveness since it represents the Army's gold standard for human-centered collaboration.

The Command Workstation will leverage CPOF's ongoing migration to a Third Generation Architecture (3G), which will enable full-spectrum operations, global scalability and seamless transition between connected and disconnected operations. One milestone in the 3G process has been the innovative quarterly software release strategy, which has provided the Army the ability to release mature software to the field in a controlled manner and maintain interoperability.
