The increasing lethality and reach of adversary weapons will significantly increase the risk to large BMC2 platforms like AWACS in 2030.
So, by enhancing the resiliency of our own constellation, improving our space BMC2, operating as a space coalition, and investing the resources necessary to capitalize on and strengthen our own space-based capabilities and capacities as well as those of the commercial space, and training and thinking about fighting, we're absolutely confident we're going to be able to survive any type of concerted attack, and continue to provide the space-based support that our war-fighters need.
Just below the AOC, subordinate operations centers and BMC2 platforms are both uniquely capable of executing distributed control.
Northrop Grumman $12.2 million Continue BMC2 development
Then one or more of the applications in the MOC nominates the strike through the Battle Management Command and Control (BMC2), whether it is an E2 Hawkeye or an AWACS, and that is passed to an F-15 E1, a special aircraft made by Boeing," Forbes said.
The review also included presentations by Northrop Grumman, Boeing, and Lockheed Martin, the leaders of the three teams competing for the MC2A's battle-management/command-and-control system (BMC2), a contract for which is slated to be awarded later this year.
The E-10A will include the Northrop Grumman/Raytheon Multi-platform Radar Technology Insertion Program (MP-RTIP) radar and an advanced Battle Management Command and Control (BMC2) subsystem integrated on a Boeing 767-400ER aircraft.
Under this contract, TRW will provide research and development services to conduct rapid prototyping of the overarching joint and coalition Battle Management Command and Control (BMC2) system for the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS), develop and operate the BMDS BMC2, Communications test bed, conduct BMDS interoperability testing and analysis, develop, conduct, and support missile defense modeling and simulation for the overall BMDS, its segments and program elements, and plan, conduct, and analyze missile defenseBMC2, and communications operator-in-the-loop war games and commander in chief exercises to support the development of joint and coalition missile defense concepts of operation.

(5) JP 3-09.3, the only joint publication that defines the TAC(A), provides only a broad overview of its employment and does not mention its most essential function--battle management command and control (BMC2).
From the first time I met John Jumper, through hours of discussions with Lincoln Labs and the creation of the Paul Revere test bed aircraft, MC2A always has been thought of as an integration and BMC2 system; it is sensor independent; it is platform, independent.
