COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., 1 June 2006. Lockheed Martin has completed the latest upgrades to the Theater Battle Management Core Systems (TBMCS) at the third Falconer Air Force Air Operations Center (AOC). The TBMCS 1.1.3 upgrade is designed to enable warfighters to support the command and control process for air operations remotely via a Web browser.
TBMCS is the primary system for planning and executing the joint air campaign, coordinating and directing flying operations from units such as F-16 fighters, refueling tankers, helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles, and cruise missiles.
The system is employed at five Air Force AOCs and more than 20 Joint Command AOCs and Navy ships worldwide.
With the latest upgrade, three quarters of TBMCS applications are now accessible via a Web-based net-centric architecture. Air Force, Army, Navy and Marine Corps users can more easily access intelligence, targeting, mission planning, and air battle management information.
