Dear Editor,

New software called Mounted Mission Command-Software (MMC-S) is currently being fielded through a software-only upgrade to replace Joint Battle Command-Platform (JBC-P) software on existing JBC-P hardware. This software-only upgrade continues the mission of JBC-P to distribute accurate digital command and control (C2) and situational awareness (SA) at all echelons to the platform and dismounted domains, populating a common operating picture (COP), and reducing risk of fratricide.

The presentation HERE outlines key features of MMC-S (you'll need your CAC to access). Highlights include:
  • MMC-S utilizes the Android Tactical Assault Kit (ATAK) for functionality, providing increased capabilities with software that is efficient and intuitive for Soldiers.
  • Smart routing that allows connection to multiple tactical networks.
  • Modular app-based functionality for quick updates and improvements.
  • The ability to incorporate more mission-specific data for enhanced collaboration and SA in map displays.
  • Precise digital graphic products that can be quickly and easily created and shared using the MMC-S overlay tool. The ability to add operational information as military graphics greatly improves a unit’s COP.
  • Enhanced collaboration of C2 messages through a variety of communication and reporting tools.
  • Interoperability with NETT Warrior.
MMC-S follows the continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD) model for agile software programs, with frequent software releases for necessary updates, patches, and capability. User feedback is captured and used in the continued development and deployment of MMC-S, so DevOps units and early users can directly impact and improve the software they use.

MMC-S is currently only authorized for the following tactical JBC-P platform under LIN C05036 with the Mounted Family of Computer Systems (MFoCS) hardware. This authorization does not include integrated platforms that must await certification for MMC-S:
Type designator Description NSN
AN/UYK-128D(V)3 Vehicle mounted/MFoCS processor unit 7010-01-626-9244
The authorization will increase as future versions are released and will eventually include all JBC-P systems (i.e., all systems under LIN C05036, and all systems under command post and logistics LINs—C05037, C05054, and C05055).

MMC-S will be fielded under ZLIN Z06129 as associated support items of equipment (ASIOE). Authorized units on the JBC-P fielding schedule for C05036 will begin receiving master hard drives of MMC-S. Authorized users with MFoCS hardware will also be notified by a maintenance information message (MIM) on how to do a software-only self-upgrade from JBC-P software to MMC-S. The ability to self-upgrade will not initially include integrated platforms that must await certification for MMC-S.

Units will receive access to MMC-S TMs and training materials, including interactive multimedia instruction and self-paced training supported remotely by new equipment training (NET) instructors.
