Army Airborne Command & Control System (A2C2S)

The Army Airborne Command & Control System (A2C2S) is a helicopter (UH-60) based Command and Control (C2) mission kit which will serve as a corps, division, maneuver brigade, or attack helicopter commander's airborne tactical command post (TACCP). The system will feature C2 "on-the-move" and situational awareness that foster a commander's common view of the battlefield through voice and data equipment that provides battlefield information processing and connectivity equivalent to ground tactical command post and Battle Command Vehicle (BCV). The system will provide connectivity to embassy, law enforcement, maritime, civil, and/or other humanitarian information/communcation networks.

Army Airborne Command and Control System provides the commander with a common picture of the battle through the Army Battle Command System (ABCS). The ABCS is a complex system of systems that links automation assets, communications media, and operational facilities to provide commanders and their staffs the ability to collect and analyze information, develop plans and orders, and monitor the tactical battlefield while simultaneously planning future operations. The Army Battlefield Command System's (ABCS) Battlefield Functional Area Control Systems (BFACS) are Maneuver Control, Fire Support, Combat Service Support, Intelligence/Electronics Warfare and Air Defense. The automated programs related to the respective BFACS are referred to as the Army Tactical Command and Control System (ATCCS)
