Command and Control

Command and control (C2) is vital to the success of the U.S. missile defense mission, acting as the nerve center for tactical, operational, and strategic missile defense initiatives. Layered missile defense operations are dependent on C2 systems, which are responsible for interconnecting various missile defense sensors and systems, allowing these platforms to identify and engage missile targets in a timely and efficient manner. C2 systems collect and communicate data from various sensors, radars, satellites, and combat systems, relaying information to commanders for decision-making and assessment. Command systems also serve to intertwine air and missile defense networks, allowing for integrated air and missile defense against various and diverse threats.
