MAGTF C2 10 Common, Modular, and Scaleable Common: MAGTF command echelons use the same equipment. Unique requirements, such as sensors and intel feeds, enter via standard gateway. Modular: System is designed to enable component utilization that logically supports a variety of con- figurations for various echelons of C2 across MAGTF. Scaleable: Software & hardware facilitate Battalion/ Squadron, Regimental/ Group, Division/Wing, & MEF-level command functions for COC by adding or subtracting common and modular components.
MAGTF C2 11 MAGTF COC Defined Combat Operations Center (COC): generic term used to describe the body of specific capabilities for MAGTF C2 applications and OPFACs described in the Operational Requirements Document (ORD). MAGTF COC CDD includes 5 capability sets (CAPSETs): –CAPSET I: MEF-level COC –CAPSET II: MSC-level / –CAPSET III: Regimental, MAG, MWSG, MEU, CLR-level –CAPSET IV: Battalion, MWSS, CLB-level –CAPSET V: Small-unit C2 platforms to
MAGTF C2 12 Joint Interoperability MAGTF C2 was “born Joint” –USMC understands requirement for Joint/Coalition interoperability today and integration tomorrow JC2 Capability Portfolio Management –Synchronize three DOD processes to deliver complete capability to the Joint Warfighter while addressing Service unique requirements –Provide guidance & standards to Services to ensure unity of effort in developing capabilities –Provide oversight of JC2 initiatives Establish overarching JC2 effort –Prioritize subordinate efforts –Address Inter-Agency and Coalition USMC will assist in providing ways to win!
