Abstract:

This summary describes the Armored Family of Vehicles AFV, CARDS number 01009P Command, Control, Communications and Intelligence C31 architecture functions and characteristics. The architecture is developed in two distinct parts - the Battalion and Below Command and Control B2C2 System and the Vehicle Control and Operating System VCOS. When B2C2 and VCOS are combined they result in the battalion level AFV C31 Architecture. This document proposes an Initial set of requirements for an integrated C31 architecture, which considers AFV as an integrated element of overall force effectiveness. This proposed set of requirements should be inserted into the AFV concept formulation and requirements development processes for evaluation and refinement.
