Command, Control & Intelligence
In a contested environment, faster decision-making, better accuracy and greater efficiency are the keys to a decisive advantage for land forces in the battlespace.
Command Posts are a strategic link of the military value chain as they are the brain of field operations. The command post is a critical nerve centre for achieving information and tactical superiority, accelerating the pace of operations and ultimately providing a Collaborative Combat experience.
However, due to its highly-strategic function, the Command Post is also a high-value target.
The changing geostrategic context has led to a resurgent risk of high-intensity conflict with near-peer adversaries. In today’s increasingly complex battlespace, these hostile forces have the capabilities to act in every domain, including cyberspace, and allied theatre-level and tactical command centres can be considered priority targets.
To maintain freedom of manoeuvre and achieve operational superiority, joint forces will need ever more sophisticated Command Post systems.
The Command Post of the future must provide military commanders with the advanced systems they need, to have better situational awareness, decide faster and act more effectively than the enemy, while reducing physical and cyber vulnerabilities through better discretion, resilience, protection and mobility.
Commanders need agile, distributed Command Post systems that are quicker and easier to deploy and ready to interconnect operational command centres and tactical units. By networking assets in the field, these Command Post systems create a dedicated cell of information services that leverages all available information to optimise situational awareness.
THE COMMAND POST IN HIGH INTENSITY CONFLICT
Command Posts are a strategic link of the military value chain. They are the brain of field operations to achieve information and tactical superiority, and accelerate the tempo of operations.
THEATRE NETWORK AND CONNECTIVITY
In today’s battlespace, the armed forces command chain relies on a comprehensive range of rapidly deployable tactical IT/communication capabilities to achieve information superiority, and carry out operations with maximum effectiveness.
DEPLOYABLE DEFENCE CLOUD
The ability to leverage vast amounts of data is a crucial advantage for armed forces, giving them enhanced situational awareness and enabling them to decide faster and act more effectively than their adversaries.
COMMAND & CONTROL
Thales’s new generation C2 solutions can help commanders prepare their missions more efficiently, facilitate decision-making in all domains and ultimately maintain a decisive advantage in an always more contested battlespace.
Cybersecurity solutions protect military networks, data and communications with a suite of highly secure, multi-sovereign solutions.
Discover how Thales’s combat-proven protection solutions such as ForceShield GBAD system and PARADE anti-UAS system provide efficient and comprehensive protection to command posts from all types of threats.
The Future Command Post by Thales
Faced with multiple threats — terrorism, natural disasters, border tensions, etc. — Armed Forces command chain relies on deployable and tactical IT / communication capabilities to efficiently coordinate and conduct operations from command posts. Their tactical IT / communication solutions must be robust and easy to deploy and redeploy wherever and whenever it is needed.
Recent events have brought about major changes in theater connectivity, with new uses: constellations, multiplication of intelligence flows, command & control, logistics... and increased vulnerabilities: interception and jamming of communications, repeated detection and destruction of command posts...
Critical communications between Command Centres and operational forces On-The-Move call for systems that are reliable, available and secure. With the transition to connected collaborative combat, satellite communications are the only way to guarantee long-range connectivity, strongly shortening the decision making process to a few seconds, and giving a major tactical and decisive advantage over the enemy.

Nexium Defence Cloud
Data is crucially important in military operations today. The Defence Cloud gives armed forces the tools they need to analyse and share information in real time, from command centres in the homeland to units on deployment overseas. It enables them to make their digital transformation with the highest levels of security and speed up the decision cycle so they can maintain the operational edge.
Thales innovative solution leveraging virtual reality for immersive and collaborative mission preparation.
Digital assurance, secure encryption, secure transmission and the authentication of data are cornerstones to keeping data secure in an ever more connected world. This includes the protection of data in transit and at rest.
