DESCRIPTION:

Tactical Mission Command (TMC) is a suite of products and services that provides commanders and staffs with planning tools, common operational picture management, information and knowledge management, other maneuver functional tools, and executive decision making in a collaborative environment. Many TMC capabilities are transitioning to Web-based widgets that can be accessed via a secure Internet as part of the Army’s Command Post Computing Environment (CP CE). The CP CE is consolidating and simplifying the separate capabilities that commanders use for missions related to all of the warfighting functions.

BENEFIT TO THE WARFIGHTER:

TMC helps provide commanders with a consolidated readiness picture on a singular workstation, lessens the logistics trail for Soldiers and reduces the training burden.
