Abstract:

In the Czech Armed Forces, we have taken a new look at the communication and information systems function. This new opinion and approach issue from integration of functions and downsizing of CIS equipment. GSM telephone is a typical example of this matter. It is an equipment of communication system but information system as well. In many cases the border between an information system and a communication system is hardly identifiable. That is why integrated C2 Communication and Information Support CISu should be mentioned rather than communication support and information support separately. CISu is a process information activity that sustains Command a Control by battle information. CISu is provided by the Communication and Information System CIS. CISu is the result of CIS function. C2 information responsibility is one of the reasons for CISu definition. O-6 is responsible for providing communication on mechanized brigade level. Not only communication is important, but information system function too. By this concept, we can centralize our CISu request on O-6 and signal company. In the past, we used to separate information support and communication. Now, according to this concept, we have specified a single integrated process, the Communication and Information Support of C2.
