Paper Abstract

The CAC2 ATD is a brigade and below command and control (C2) concept which leverages existing and emerging technologies to address goals of improving battle management, force synchronization, and situation awareness, through battlefield digitization. The ongoing objective of this concept is to automate and digitally integrate all friendly forces on the battlefield by providing an information-based digital system architecture at brigade and below to support horizontal and vertical integration capabilities that yield shared situation awareness, battlefield synchronization, and near real time target handover capabilities. The primary objective is to evolve and demonstrate a digital Systems Architecture, that supports the Army Battlefield Digitization goals, by providing near term Modeling and Simulation (MandS) and software products to support digitization Army Warfighting Experiments (AWEs) including Task Force XXI a live experiment scheduled at Fort Hood in 1997. The concept will be continually advanced by integrating new systems, technologies and tactics, as they evolve, into the iterative processes of analysis, modeling, simulation and demonstrations.
