JBC-P, is the Army’s nextgeneration friendly force tracking system, equipping Soldiers with a faster satellite network, secure data encryption and advanced logistics. Fielded to the first unit equipped in May 2015, JBC-P includes an intuitive interface with features like touch-to-zoom maps and drag-and-drop icons. JBC-P will be interoperable 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), which encompasses standardized tactical computers that are scalable and tailorable to the mission and vehicle. Ranging in options from a detachable tablet to a fully loaded, vehicle-mounted workstation, MFoCS can also run other software applications, reducing size, weight and power (SWaP) demands. JBC-P builds on the situational awareness capability known as Force XXI Battle Command Brigade and Below/ Blue Force Tracking (FBCB2/BFT), which is integrated on more than 120,000 platforms and is fielded or authorized to every brigade combat team in the Army.
