Textron releases iCommand 2.5
iCommand is a command and control data fusion engine, designed to help convert and merge disparate intelligence and other data feeds to create a coherent operational picture for military users.
The new version collates and collapses previously disparate data and systems onto a single pane of glass and adds mission critical contextual information to raw data. Connected elements can be quickly integrated along with data from remote platforms including sensors, operational assets and a variety of information and operations feeds.
iCommand 2.5 has an intuitive web-based interface, allowing operators to dynamically manage critical aspects of the data including name, symbology, attribution, layering and attachments. The new integrated command suite delivers interactive mission planning with multiple time based courses of action, and users have the options to create custom and standard georeferenced entities, and set-up automated alerting and event logging.
The version also offers enhanced recorded video review, enabling users to start and stop video stream feeds and review video data captured over a 48-hour period.
Daryl Madden, Textron Systems senior vice president and general manager of Advanced Information Solutions, said: ‘iCommand 2.5 enhances interactions and collaboration between mission commanders and tactical edge users for greater performance and scalability in robust operations.
‘It takes the capabilities of our previous iCommand solution to the next level and expands its application to a wider range of environments. With increased information access, users are able to maintain a tactical advantage like never before.’
