Abstract : The purpose of this document is to provide an analysis of the Army Battle Command System (ABCS) common core applications. The ABCS establishes a common operating methodology and standards for integration of command and control functions. Within the ABCS, there are multiple systems that have similar, or common, applications or functions. These systems were initiated separately and focused on providing products to a specific user echelon or battlefield functional area. The TRADOC Proponency Integration Office (TPIO)-ABCS has reviewed those systems to determine those functions and applications that are common to multiple ABCS systems. The following list shows the common functions that are directly associated with the Maneuver Control System (MCS), Standard Theater Army Command and Control System (STACCS), and Army Global Command and Control System (AGCCS) functions: Friendly Situation; Enemy Situation; Course of Action Development and Analysis; OPLAN/OPORD/Annex Generator; Terrain Evaluation; and Supplies and Equipment.
