PLEXSYS is part of the MacAulay-Brown (MacB) newly developed Resilient Command, Control, and Communications Integrated Solution (RC3IS). RC3IS is a flexible, inter-operable C2 solution intended for use in integrating the command and coordination of multi-domain components of a military. The solution is a self-contained product that leverages both open and industry standards for application integration in a compact format. RC3IS can be deployed onto any physical hardware platform to meet mobility or resiliency requirements.
The RC3IS can be used as a solution for coalition partners in the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Foreign Military Sales (FMS) program, where implementing systems and capabilities developed in the U.S. allows foreign countries to perform air operations organically and fight side-by-side with U.S. forces.
Senior engineers at MacB developed an advanced architectural framework, combined with commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) components, and integrated them into a single suite creating a fully interoperable solution in line with the current U.S. Air Operations Center (AOC) applications. PLEXSYS’ ASCOT is a core application component, providing radar modeling, scenario creation, exercise generation, data-link messaging capability, data link translation, and dynamic simulation entity play. Additionally, PLEXSYS’ sonomarc communications suite provides radio simulation for RC3IS allowing for communications with external simulations on a distributed training network.
