A Day in the Life of NIE (Network Integration Evaluation)

A Bradley Fighting Vehicle is shown here with a Mission Command on the Move (MCOTM) system from the DRS Tactical Systems, Inc., installed.
Currently located in the Integration Motor Pool, it will be one of 22 systems under evaluation in the upcoming Network Integration Evaluation to be held at Fort Bliss and White Sands Missile Range in October and November. Inside the Bradley, Mike Kelley from DRS, left, demonstrates system features
to Brig. Gen. Randal Dragon, right, commanding general of the Brigade
Modernization Command. According to Kelley, the MCOTM is a system of
systems that leverages the power of digital communications to enhance the
planning, monitoring and control of military operations. This MCOTM suite is
a tactical, automated, digital battle command information system meant to
operate in tactical vehicles and Tactical Operation Centers (TOC) to provide
messaging, vehicle tracking capabilities, and total logistics asset visibility. The system allows commanders to determine vehicle location and operational status, and provides near real-time horizontal and vertical communications at all echelons.
