Fire Support Command and Control

Fire Support Command and Control (FSC2) empowers commanders to plan and execute the delivery of lethal fires and effects by providing capabilities to employ joint digital fires, enhance situational awareness and increase collaboration.

FSC2 provides Army, joint and coalition commanders with the capability to plan, execute and deliver both lethal and non-lethal fires and effects. FSC2 systems comprise the entire sensor-to-shooter digital kill chain, from the dismounted forward observer through theater and Combatant Command planning cells. These systems integrate Army, joint and coalition targeting capabilities and fuse that information with the ballistic calculations required to deliver precision munitions.


  • Advanced Field Artillery Tactical Data System (AFATDS) provides fully automated support for planning, coordinating, controlling and executing fires and effects, including mortars, field artillery cannons, rockets and missiles, close air support, attack aviation and Naval surface fire-support systems. AFATDS is the primary command and control system for Long-Range Precision Fires (LRPF) Cross-Functional Team (CFT) initiatives, such as Extended Range Cannon Artillery (ERCA), Extended Range Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System (ER-GMLRS), Precision Strike Missile Program (PrSM) and Projectile Tracking System (PTS).
  • Precision Fires-Dismounted (PF-D) is used by forward observers and fire support teams to transmit and receive fire support messages over standard military line-of-sight, high-frequency and satellite communications radios. PF-D enhances this functionality over legacy systems with a revamped user interface and precision fires targeting capabilities. PF-D is hosted as a software application on common Army hardware in the Handheld Computing Environment.
  • The Joint Targeting Integrated Command and Coordination Suite (JTIC2S) software solution, which will provide critical fires/targeting capability for joint and organic Army fire support management, and a joint fires/ targeting common operational picture (COP) for joint and coalition partners, as well as at echelon for target development. JTIC2S will replace the JADOCS capability and will enable commanders to functionally integrate targeting efforts in a federated method.
    • Military service branches at echelon will utilize the functions within JTIC2S for a synchronized targeting tactical picture with Army and Joint Fires COP to support Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2) and Multi Domain Operations (MDO) against a near-peer adversary.
  • Fires capabilities in sustainment include the Lightweight Forward Entry Device (LFED), which hosts the Forward Observer System (FOS) software, enabling mounted forward observers and fire support officers to plan, control and execute fire support operations at maneuver platoon, company, and battalion and brigade levels across the mounted formation; the Profiler weather system, which improves artillery accuracy by providing meteorological (MET) data, one of five requirements for accurate predicted fires; CENTAUR, the lightweight technical fire direction system that provides an automated cannon ballistic firing solution to the Fire Direction Centers (FDCs); and the Joint Automated Deep Operations Coordination System (JADOCS), a joint mission management software application that provides a suite of tools and interfaces for integration across battlespace functional areas focusing on the Joint Target Cycle.
