US Marines Reach Milestone For New General Dynamics-built Aviation CCS

A General Dynamics C4 Systems-led team recently supported the successful critical design review of the Aviation Command and Control Subsystem (AC2S), a part of the U.S. Marine Corps' new Common Aviation Command and Control System (CAC2S).

General Dynamics will now build four AC2S engineering development models (EDM) for integration into a CAC2S system for developmental testing and operational assessment. The first EDM was delivered to the Marine Corps in January 2014.

CAC2S provides Marine Corps operators with the unprecedented ability to share mission-critical voice, video, sensor and other command and control data during any mission.

The data sub-system fuses sensor inputs from expeditionary radars, weapon systems, unmanned aerial vehicles and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance resources into a high-resolution, real-time display that forms a common operational picture for Marine Air-Ground Task Force commanders and their staffs.

CAC2S will replace the legacy Marine Air Command and Control System.

Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics C4 Systems, said, "CAC2S will deliver a lighter, leaner and more effective aviation command-and-control system while reducing the overall systems inventory, sustainment and training costs associated with the Marine Corps' expeditionary missions."

MUOS Satellite Tests Show Extensive Reach In Polar Communications Capability
Sunnyvale CA (SPX) Feb 04, 2014
Lockheed Martin has demonstrated that the U.S. Navy's Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) satellites may help solve communication challenges in the arctic. Now people spread over thousands of square miles could have access to more secure, reliable communications. During company-funded tests, MUOS voice and data signals reached much farther north than previously thought, just 30 miles and 0 ... read more
