Army Tactical Command and Control System (ATCCS)

The Army Tactical Command and Control System (ATCCS) will be linked directly to Army Global Command and Control System (AGCCS), providing a framework of seamless connectivity from brigade to corps. ATCCS is also the linchpin between AGCCS and Force XXI Battle Command Brigade-and-Below (FBCB2), creating a holistic, seamless integration of battle command from individual platforms to echelons above corps (EAC).

ATCCS is made up of five systems: The ATCCS systems need a standard users interface. Currently, simple tasks such as File Print, File Open, File Close, File Save, and File Send are not readily available to the soldier operators of the ATCCS systems. For soldiers whogrew up on Windows and Macintosh computers where these functions were readily available, there is no valid reason for the ATCCS systems to be different. Additionally, the ATCCS systems are not even uniform among themselves in performing these basic functions. This means increased training time when transitioning from one TOC duty position to another.
