JOINT BATTLE COMMAND – PLATFORM FAMILY OF SYSTEMS (JBC-P)

A Marine with the 2nd Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment from Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, operates Joint Battle Command-Platform inside a vehicle during Network Integration Evaluation 14.2 at Fort Bliss, Texas. About 900 Marines joined the Soldiers of the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Armored Division at the evaluation, which serves as an operational laboratory to incrementally enhance the Army's tactical network. JBC-P, a new situational awareness capability for the Army and Marine Corps, is built with today's force in mind featuring touch-to-zoom maps, drag-and-drop icons and a Google Earth-like interface.
