Israeli firm Elbit Systems today announced it delivered a Command Post Integrated Infrastructure (CPI2) vehicle to the U.S. Army.
“Elbit America, working with the U.S. Army Command Post Integrated Infrastructure (CPI2) Product Manager, is proud to deliver our 1st CPI2 vehicle,” the company said in a Twitter statement.
The CPI2 will help the U.S. Army transition from tent-based Command Posts to vehicle-based systems with on-board power.
The Army’s CPI2 program reduces the command post footprint by incorporating 12 vehicle and shelter command post systems in lieu of large tent-based command posts. This will create a mobile and cohesive structure for operations.
The goal is to produce power technologies that would be available for systems across command post configurations. CPI2 integrates dozens of C5ISR infrastructure components ranging from network communications and mission-command systems to heating and cooling units, and each component has power demands. This includes allowing units to connect vehicles via plugs similar to those found on consumer electric vehicles.
