US Army’s Mark Kitz Says PEO C3T Focused on Network Unification and Flexibility

Mark Kitz, the U.S. Army’s program executive officer for command, control and communications-tactical, said the service will work with the private sector in fiscal year 2024 to deliver capabilities to support network operations centralization, which he named one of his main priorities.

Kitz, a past Potomac Officers Club event speaker, identified network flexibility as another goal for PEO C3T. In an interview with Breaking Defense, he said opportunities exist across his office’s entire portfolio to give units a flexible network infrastructure by delivering new capabilities, including commercial ones.

According to Kitz, he is working with the private sector to improve the Army’s battlespace data processing and is looking into next-generation solutions for mission command applications. One technology under consideration is artificial intelligence, which he encountered during his time at PEO Intelligence, Electronic Warfare and Sensors.

Kitz said PEO C3T could use PEO IEW&S’ Project Linchpin as a template to use AI to achieve network path diversity or improvements in how data is delivered to mission command applications, Breaking Defense reported.
