Our Corps’ C2 ICD, approved by the Joint Requirements Oversight Council in 2008; our Corps’ Functional Concept for C2, approved in 2009; and the Marine Air Ground Task Force Command and Control Systems Concept of Operations (MAGTF C2 CONOPS), approved in 2013 incorporate joint integrating concepts and C2 mandates. Together, they articulate our goal of delivering end-to-end, fully integrated, cross-functional capability, including forward deployed and reach-back functions. They emphasize that C2 must be leader-centric and network-enabled, and that individual Marines must understand their commander’s intent and be able to support complex operations.
The C2 ICD, Functional Concept, C2 Systems CONOPS, and the MCIENTs will enable MAGTFs to exercise effective C2 and combine all warfighting functions into an effective fighting force. In addition, these programs support the ability of the MAGTFs to function in an integrated naval environment and participate in, or lead joint and multi-national operations.
