Daniel Hughes: US Army Unifies En-Route Connectivity for Soldiers

1 min read

NavyC5ISRThe U.S. Army has begun to unify communications for soldiers from home station through the battlefield in a move to aid in real-time information flow between troops and commanders, C4ISR & Networks reported Thursday.

Amber Corrin writes 75 units will initially receive components of the command post computing environment, mounted computing environment and the joint battle command platform as part of an ongoing deployment process.

Maj. Gen. Daniel Hughes, Army program executive officer for command, control, communications-tactical, told a conference the unified connectivity is critical to helping soldiers “operate at home like they do in field,” C4ISR & Networks reports.

The connectivity system contains interfaces meant to display logistics, intelligence and airspace management and maneuvers information through radios, mapping applications and chat rooms, the report says.

Hughes said his office focuses the unified communication effort on the command post computing environment prior to an enterprise-wide rollout across the Army and the Defense Department, Corrin reports.
