Boeing To Demonstrate Aviation Command And Control Subsystem For US Marine Corps

CAC2S is envisioned as a scalable, modular and flexible communications system with an open-architecture design that can be deployed via humvee within 24 hours of receiving a movement order. It is also supposed to be transportable by helicopters, airplanes, amphibious ships and landing craft.

Boeing has received a nearly $5 million demonstration contract for the U.S. Marine Corps Common Aviation Command and Control System (CAC2S) program. CAC2S will upgrade the service's Marine Air Command and Control System.

The contract award supports development of a sensor data subsystem to integrate input from various Marine Corps sensors.

The company will present its system to the Marines at the conclusion of the one-year contract during a live demonstration at Camp Pendleton, Calif. Other contract deliverables include analyses of transportability, architecture and components.

"We believe our system provides a single integrated air, ground and radar picture that will enhance the joint warfighters' shared awareness, shared understanding and collaborative decision-making," said Darryl Davis, president of Boeing Phantom Works.

"We are honored to have the opportunity to demonstrate it to the Marine Corps."

Boeing's system, called the Marine Aviation Command and Control System, provides a fully integrated air-ground battle management suite. Its extensible, open architecture is designed to seamlessly integrate with current and future command and control systems.
