Current MBCOTM systems comprise of Bradley, Stryker
Command Variant (CV) and Humvee. Each vehicle is equipped with
multiple SINCGARS systems, mobile satellite terminal, and is wired
to support multiple workstations with complete access through
Keyboard, Video Mouse (KVM) supporting Army Battle Command Systems
(ABCS) applications hosted on Multiple Processing Units (MPU). Such
applications include MCS,
FBCB2, ASAS, AFATDS, AMDWS, and GCCS-A.
All applications are interconnected, and are networked to external
elements via wireless networking through EPLRS, NTDR, or AN/VRC-103
(which also enables satellite communications). The vehicle is also
equipped with a 64kb INMARSAT satellite link for satellite voice and
limited data communication. Enhanced performance are is expected,
with follow-on systems, offering up to 512kb on the move. Current
broadband connectivity is maintained when the command elements stops
for a brief halt, when the MBCOTM links with the Secure, Mobile,
Antijam, Reliable Tactical Terminal (SMART-T) following the command
team, is linking it through a MILSTAR Medium Data Rate satellite.
The MBCOTM vehicles are currently tested by the Army. Initial
fielding of command Humvees is expected for 2006, followed by
Stryker CV and Bradleys in 2007 and 2008.
