The Military & Aerospace Electronics take:
22 June 2020 -- According to SOCOM Acquisition Executive James Smith, the organization is starting a new program of record called “Mission Command” that will layer all the data commanders need into one pane of glass.
Instead of layers upon layers of acetate, or using several displays, SOCOM wants to fuse all that information to visualize data in one place -- including data unique to Special Operations Forces like socioeconomics and influence layers.
Mission Command will enable a collaborative command and control that will fuse Special Operations Forces’ (SOF) joint function activities. Mission Command will launch as a formal program of record in fiscal year 2022. It will include a suite of tools, systems, applications, data sources and standards that will be interoperable across the SOF environment.
