Humvee developed to provide mobile command and control.
The C2OTM vehicle was developed by JSIC (a subordinate command of the U.S. Joint Forces Command) to meet requirements identified by V Corps during its experiences in Operation Iraqi Freedom. According to Lieutenant Colonel Tony Krogh of V Corps, "We see C2OTM as a primary platform for our commander that gives him the ability to maneuver around the battlefield and maintain situational awareness without being tethered to the standard command post or having to stop and erect some type of a satellite dish. He can arrive on scene with full situational awareness."
JSIC built and tested a C2OTM conceptual prototype last year. An operational prototype was scheduled for a V Corps mission rehearsal exercise in July.
