Command and Control Vehicle (C2V)

The Command and Control Vehicle (C2V) is part of the family of manned ground vehicles and is the hub of battlefield command and control. The C2V platform provides the tools for commanders to synchronize their knowledge of combat power with the human dimension of leadership. It is located within the headquarters sections at each echelon of the BCT down to the company level, and with the integrated command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) suite of equipment, the C2V provides commanders with the ability to command and control on the move.

Via mission workstations and a common look and feel warfighter-machine interface, C2V's allow commanders and their staffs to access Battle Command mission applications and tools including: mission planning and preparation, situation understanding, and mission execution. These applications enable commanders and their staffs to perform tasks such as fusing friendly, enemy, civilian, weather and terrain situations and distributing this information via a common operating picture.

Commanders also utilize the C2V's integrated C4ISR suite to receive, analyze and transmit tactical information both inside and outside the BCT. The C2V can also employ unmanned systems, such as unmanned aerial vehicles to enhance situational awareness throughout the BCT.
