Command and Control Vehicle (C2V)
The Command and Control Vehicle (C2V) is part of the family of manned ground vehicles and is the hub of battlefield command and control. The Command and Control Vehicle (C2V) platform provides for information management of the integrated network of communications and sensor capability within the Unit of Action (UA) and provides the tools for commanders to synchronize their knowledge of combat power with the human dimension of leadership. It is located within the headquarters sections at each echelon of the Unit of Action (UA) down to the company level, and with the integrated command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) suite of equipment, it provides commanders command and control on the move.
Command and Control Vehicles (C2Vs) contain all the interfaces required to enable the commander to leverage the power of the C4ISR network and provides the means for leaders at all levels to achieve information superiority and situational understanding and to establish, maintain and distribute a common operating picture fused from the friendly, enemy, civilian, weather and terrain situations while on the move. The crew uses its integrated C4ISR suite (communication, computers and sensor systems) to receive, analyze and transmit tactical information via voice, video and data inside and outside the Unit of Action (UA). The Command and Control Vehicle (C2V) can also employ unmanned systems, such as unmanned aerial vehicles to enhance situational awareness throughout the Unit of Action (UA).
