The U.S. Marine Corps' Aviation Command and Control Subsystem, a part of its new Common Aviation Command and Control System, has passed a critical design review. General Dynamics delivered an AC2S engineering development model last month, and will now deliver three more.
CAC2S replaces the Marine Air Command and Control System. "CAC2S provides Marine Corps operators with the unprecedented ability to share mission-critical voice, video, sensor and other command and control data during any mission," said a General Dynamics news release. "The data sub-system fuses sensor inputs from expeditionary radars, weapon systems, unmanned aerial vehicles and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance resources into a high-resolution, real-time display that forms a common operational picture for Marine Air-Ground Task Force commanders and their staffs."
