Global Command & Control System - Maritime (GCCS-M)

Primary Purpose The Global Command and Control System -Maritime

(GCCS-M) is the Navy's single command and control

program-of-record that integrates and interfaces

over 80 separate C4I systems providing naval

commanders afloat and ashore a near-real-time

Common Operating Picture (COP). GCCS-M enhances

the operational commander's warfighting

capability and aids in the decision-making

process by receiving, retrieving, and displaying

information to allow warfighters to plan,

coordinate, exercise, execute and evaluate naval

and joint operations. GCCS-M is an open-ended

architecture system consisting of servers,

workstations, routers, hubs, and encryption

devices, and integrates information from multiple

C4I functional areas.

Sub-Functions GCCS-M (Afloat), GCCS-M (Ashore), GCCS-M

(Tactical Mobile Variants - Mobile Ashore Support

Terminal, Mobile Integrated Command Facility,

Mobile Operations Command Center) and GCCS

(Joint).

Equipment Requirements Currently a UNIX and Windows NT based platform.

UNIX systems and Windows NT systems are

interoperable. Migrating towards a primarily

Windows based platform.

Connectivity Requirements Uses IP routing over the Secret Internet Protocol

Routing Network (SIPRNET). Typically SHF SATCOM

with inputs via UHF and HF.

Crypto Requirements No external equipment required. Primarily uses

SIPRNET.

Normal Locations GCCS-M is located at both fixed and mobile

locations: U.S. and NATO CINCs, U.S. Naval
