Land Command Support System Tactical Command and Control Information System Modernization

Project Type

Project Replace


This project will modernize and re-capitalize the in-service tactical command and control information system components of the land command support system. This will incorporate major updates and replacement of the existing command support hardware and software components of the Canadian Army command support system from formation to individual tactical vehicle commanders. This project will be supported by a robust tactical communications infrastructure.


Deliverables are expected to improve the following command functions: commander decision-making at all levels, situational awareness, collaborative planning including information/data sharing with other joint partners, electronic transmission of orders and plans, battle tracking and monitoring the operational status of Formations, Battlegroups, Companies, Platoons, Sections and vehicles. Other potential deliverables include integral simulation systems for Commanders and staffs and interface gateways with Joint, Interagency, Multinational and Public partners. The project will address long standing interface issues with existing stovepipe systems.
