GLOBAL COMMAND AND CONTROL SYSTEM – TACTICAL COMBAT OPERATIONS (GCCS-TCO)

Description

The Global Command and Control System – Tactical Combat Operations (GCCS-TCO), when coupled with the Combat Operations Center (COC) and Marine Air Ground Task Force (MAGTF) Command and Control (C2) programs, represents the core C2 capabilities and provides the primary C2 functionality within the MAGTF.

Operational Impact

GCCS-TCO is the joint C2 system that provides operational commanders with the information and capability to plan, execute, and manage operations, as well as the capability to report unit readiness and without GCCS-TCO, the Marine Corps would not have the ability to access or contribute to the situational awareness provided by the Common Tactical Picture (CTP) or Common Operational Picture (COP), either internal to the Marine Corps or within the joint community. GCCS-TCO is the tool for the Marine Corps CTP and entry point for the joint-level COP.
