General Dynamics - $18 Million for Command Post of the Future

General Dynamics : 11 December, 2007  (Company News)
U.S. Army Awards General Dynamics $18 Million for Command Post of the Future
The U.S. Army has awarded a contract to General Dynamics C4 Systems for contractor support and engineering services for the Command Post of the Future (CPOF). The initial delivery order is for $18.4 million on the Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (ID/IQ) contract, which has a potential value of $200 million over five years. General Dynamics C4 Systems is a business unit of General Dynamics.

CPOF is part of the Army's Battle Command System (ABCS) and enables commanders and their staffs to jointly plan, prepare, rehearse, execute and assess operations over tactical networks from geographically dispersed locations. One CPOF system can support more than 300 simultaneous users while running on a commercial off-the-shelf computer workstation with multiple screens. The system is managed by the U. S. Army Program Executive Office Command, Control, Communications, Tactical of Fort Monmouth, N.J.

More than 1,000 CPOF systems are deployed with the U.S. military. Users describe the system as 'always on,' allowing commanders a quick view at a course of action and the ability to collaborate with subordinates.

'The Command Post of the Future gives warfighters a quicker, more accurate understanding of the commander's intent,' said Manny Mora, vice president of Battle Management for General Dynamics C4 Systems. 'This contract, combined with phenomenal user acceptance, brings CPOF one step closer to being fielded to the entire Army.'
