Due to the dynamic nature of modern warfare, effective Command and Control (C2) requires consolidation of multiple, disparate data sources, as well as the ability to organize and manipulate that data from both a temporal and geospatial perspective. Today’s execution decisions must be informed by the assessment of yesterday’s results and take into consideration awareness of tomorrow’s plan. A re-strike request should be immediately available for integration into the next planning cycle. Post-mission battle damage assessment results and ISR of a time sensitive strike should be considered by an already scheduled strike and fly-over in tomorrow’s Air Tasking Order (ATO). Kinetic activities should be aware of non-kinetic tasking, and vice-versa.

At ISS, we make effective C2 possible via our C2Core framework. Used in SWIC, MAAPTK, ACUMEN, WebTAS STAKE, and other fielded applications, C2Core provides a single, temporal and geospatial data structure with supporting mission applications for managing and interacting with that data structure. Certain elements of a commander’s environment are common to multiple mission applications, for example, resources, taskings, requests, and locations are often utilized by multiple applications. C2Core manages these common data elements via reusable software modules capable of being presented and packaged in a custom, tailored application. Additionally, C2Core provides users the ability to reach into, manipulate, and synchronize legacy data silos outside of the C2Core data structure, resulting in total data command through one user interface environment.
