General Dynamics has won a $9 million contract for the procurement of five Common Aviation Command and Control System (CAC2S) limited deployment units (LDUs) for the US Marine Corps.

Exercise of this option brings the total production of CAC2S LDUs to nine.  Work is expected to be completed by September 2017, US Department of Defense said in a statement Monday.

CAC2S will provide a complete and coordinated modernization of Marine Air Command and Control System (MACCS) equipment. CAC2S will eliminate current dissimilar systems and provide the MAGTF Combat Element with the hardware, software and facilities to effectively command, control and coordinate air operations integrated with naval, joint and/or combined C2 units.

CAC2S will comprise standardized modular and scalable tactical facilities, hardware and software that will significantly increase battlefield mobility and reduce the physical size and logistical footprint of the MACCS.
