SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. The U.S. Marine Corps has awarded General Dynamics Mission Systems a full-rate production contract for the Common Aviation Command and Control System (CAC2S) program, a command and control system that visually combines ground and aviation command and control data for greater situational awareness and faster decision-making.
The CAC2S contract is worth approximately $105 million over four years.
CAC2S -- which consolidates the existing functionality of the seven Marine Air Command and Control Systems into a single system -- was developed using an open architecture approach, which General Dynamics Mission Systems officials say enables easier technology insertion, quicker capability enhancements, and more intuitive learning for users.
