PEO C3T Head Discusses Army Push for Mobile Command Posts

Mark Kitz, the head of the U.S. Army’s Program Executive Office Command, Control and Communications-Tactical, said modern command posts should be mobile and dispersed to survive near-peer combat characterized by proliferated sensors, jammers and long-range weaponry.

To enhance mobility, the Army is developing Command Post Integrated Infrastructure, a system that stations commanders in trucks loaded with communications nodes and commercial-off-the-shelf technology, C4ISRNET reported Saturday.

Kitz, a past Potomac Officers Club event speaker, shared that he plans to speak to companies at the ongoing Association of the U.S. Army conference about how they can support CPI2.

He explained that PEO C3T wants to give each commander the freedom to customize their command posts by selecting the vehicle they want to use. Some leaders could favor medium tactical vehicles while others could prefer the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle.

In developing CPI2, Kitz’s office is prioritizing aspects such as connectivity, camouflage and power management.

Kitz added that the push to modernize command posts accompanies a focus on divisions as the Army’s primary units of action.
