Joint Battle Command-Platform (JBC-P) is a critical initiative aligned with the Army Network Modernization Priority and Strategy Line of Effort (LOE) 2, Common Operating Environment (COE). JBC-P supports LOE 2 by providing interoperable data, message, and waveforms, integration with Joint C5ISR and strike capabilities, sensors and applications for operations across domains, and common cyber-hardened hardware to enhance capabilities. It serves as the cornerstone of Joint Forces' Command and Control (C2), Situational Awareness (SA), and Communications, offering secure Blue Force Tracking (BFT) capability at the Platform and Command Post levels. JBC-P enables seamless sharing of relevant information within all tactical levels of command and control, addressing a significant cyber vulnerability associated with legacy hardware.

In FY 2024, the Army will continue to procure and field JBC-P hardware and software to achieve Full Operational Capability (FOC) by completing procurement in FY 2024 and fielding in FY 2025. This will involve replacing legacy systems such as Force XXI Battle Command Brigade and Below (FBCB2) and Joint Capabilities Release (JCR), resolving interoperability issues, reducing maintenance costs, improving cyber resilience, and achieving a common baseline with improved capabilities. The program will also incrementally modernize via the Mounted Mission Command (MMC) Family of Systems (FoS), which includes multiple programs addressing various components. Additionally, funding from FY 2024 to FY 2028 will support modernization efforts to significantly improve performance, resiliency, and usability while utilizing modular open standards to further build upon the MMC foundation.
