What Is It?
Command and Control Rapid Prototype Continuum (C2RPC) couples emerging science and technology developments, advanced prototypes and experimentation processes to explore maritime operations center operational level of war needs at several fleet commands. It also serves as an incubator for technology concepts that will produce capabilities to be transitioned by Program Executive Office (PEO) C4I and related C2 programs of record.
How Does It Work?
This program employs net-centric precepts as espoused by the Department of Defense’s Chief Information Officer, in design, development and implementation of common enterprise computing hardware and software infrastructure to align Navy data and information needs with joint and other service components capabilities through service-oriented architectures, data strategies and shared planning validated through experimentation.
What Will It Accomplish?
C2RPC will allow for the evaluation of advanced technology capabilities in operational environments; speed transition and fielding with better responsiveness to current and emerging fleet requirements.
