PEO C3T develops, acquires, fields and supports the Army's tactical communications network -- a critical Army modernization priority that brings information dominance to current and future Soldiers. A robust, secure, intuitive network is a key enabler for an agile, expeditionary Force 2025, providing operational flexibility and enhancing leaders' situational awareness in support of decisive mission command.
PEO C3T is delivering the network to austere regions around the globe, enabling high-speed, high-capacity voice, data and video communications to a user base that includes the Army's joint, coalition and other mission partners. Today, PEO C3T provides the tactical network equipment that is supporting robust connectivity for our Soldiers in overseas operations, including Operation Resolute Support in Afghanistan, Operations Inherent Resolve in Iraq and Syria, Pacific Pathways and other Pacific theater operations, African Command operations and Operation Atlantic Resolve in Europe.
Through the integrated Capability Set Fielding and Unit Set Fielding processes, PEO C3T is delivering thousands of tactical network upgrades to active component, Army Reserve and National Guard units. Capability Sets, currently fielding to Army-prioritized infantry and Stryker brigade combat teams, extend mobile network connectivity from the brigade command post all the way down to the dismounted Soldier.
PEO C3T technologies allow Soldiers in tactical and combat vehicles to plan and execute their missions while on the move across the battlefield, tracking friendly and enemy force locations on a digital map. Capabilities fielded by PEO C3T allow Soldiers to digitally call for fires, accurately engage their targets, send text messages reporting enemy locations or requesting medical help, and track unit readiness and equipment availability. PEO C3T is increasing competition in its network and mission command system procurements in order to deliver enhanced capability for the Soldier while lowering costs for the Army.
Aberdeen Proving Ground is the collaborative hub where PEO C3T will continue to innovate for the future. In support of Force 2025, PEO C3T will deliver a pervasive, integrated network that gives Soldiers the information they need from garrison to the foxhole, while simplifying the network so it is easier to use, train, maintain and sustain.
