BAE SYSTEMS command application to be enhanced to support NATO
08 Jul 2002
BAE Systems C4ISR has been awarded a contract by the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence to further develop the GP3 command support application to support the NATO Allied Command Europe Rapid Reaction Corps' (ARRC) retention of its certification as a High Readiness Force (Land).
The Christchurch, United Kingdom, based team has been tasked with producing GP3 Release 4 in order to enhance GP3's situational awareness and planning capability specifically in the areas of mapping and symbology. This will be used in Headquarters ARRC, building on the successful experience already gained during the NATO accreditation exercise, ARRCADE GUARD '02, in March.
GP3 provides flexible command support to assist commanders and staffs at headquarters to carry out G2 (Intelligence) and G3 (Operations/Plans) function. GP3 provides significant situational awareness, orders and plan dissemination capabilities in support of deployed Headquarters.
The ability to co-ordinate and monitor battlespace activities is a key enabler in the modern Army's challenge of getting inside the opposition's decision cycle. GP3 is designed to be hosted on modern MS based windows client/server infrastructures utilising WANs for inter-headquarters communications., It has been designed to be extensible and configurable, enabling it to adapt to variant infrastructure configurations.
