The Army Tactical Computer
The Army Tactical Computer System (ATacCS) provides the Army with a
LAN and WAN based command and control system (for in and out of
barracks use) across the whole battlespace. This system is at the
forefront of technology and heavily based on commercial off the shelf
technology. The majority of system managers and maintainers for this
system are Royal Signals personnel.
Operational Command System (JOCS)
In concert with the formation of the Joint Rapid Reaction Force there
was a requirement for a joint computer system. The Joint Operational
Command System (JOCS) was brought into service during 1999. This
system provides a sophisticated operational picture, along with staff
tools for controlling joint operations. It uses the latest commercial
technology and web browsing techniques for publishing and distributing
information. This system, combined with ATacCS, set the standard for
future Battlefield Information System Applications to achieve the
digitised battlespace of the 21st century.
DEPLOYABLE CIS MODULES (DCM)
Modules (DCM) are a combination of Local Area Network and Wide Area
Network (LAN/WAN), Integrated Digital Exchanges, fibre optic
connections and a satellite interface capability.
