Command. Control. Communicate.
Command and Control (C2) has many definitions. Some associate it with leveraging all technology on the battlefield to achieve and maintain information dominance. Others associate it with decision criteria aligned to the use of nuclear weapons. REDCOM solutions directly support C2 conditions where they matter the most.
The tools and function of command and control evolves with each leap in technology. At its core, it’s how a commander recognizes what needs to be done and takes appropriate action. C2 is both art and science, the art of sustaining critical functions during a conflict and the science of integrating the tools that provide the highest performance in communication technology.
The brilliance is in the basics
The technology gap is closing between U.S. forces and adversaries. The prevalence of the cyber domain in every warfighting function creates new challenges for those at the leading edge. Mobility readiness in future engagement needs a brilliance in the basics approach, especially in a denied environment. C2 will be driven by the ability to implement low SWaP hardware and software solutions, reduce the equipment footprint at the tactical edge, improve interoperability and intuitively arrange connectivity.
The REDCOM approach: adaptive and flexible
REDCOM solutions are designed for interoperability, security, mobility, and SWaP at the operational and tactical edge. Our product configuration, controls and management can be used without extensive training or field service, reducing support requirements overall.
Our capabilities support C2 over IP-based infrastructure – accommodating TDM and analog paths when the integration of assets to other modes of communication is required. The integration of disparate terminal devices directly addresses interoperability challenges when coordination with coalition or host nation partners is required. The same is true for Public Safety or Humanitarian/Disaster Relief missions.
The command and control platform for U.S. Army
REDCOM was selected by the U.S. Army’s Program Executive Office Command, Control Communications-Tactical for network modernization at the battalion level and below. REDCOM technology is being deployed to multiple programs within the U.S. Army, delivering command and control communications to warfighters at the tactical edge.
