The M1130 Commander Vehicle (CV) is an armoured vehicle based on the Stryker platform that provides the brigade with the means to receive information and data, analyze, prepare and transmit data, and control the forces/functions carrying out combat missions.

General

The CV provides an operational platform for elements of command within the SBCT. The CV integrates the C4ISR equipment for the unit commanders. It has the ability to access aircraft power and antenna systems to plan missions while en route aboard aircraft.

Operational Capability

Commanders must have the capability to see and direct the battle continuously, maintaining the Common Relevant Operating Picture (CROP) for all friendly forces within their respective areas of operation. This enhanced situational awareness and understanding will enable commanders to synchronize and employ widely dispersed and highly mobile forces at decisive points of the operation. Initial fielding of the CV will be three platforms to the brigade headquarters, two platforms to the infantry maneuver battalion HQ, and two per infantry maneuver company within each battalion. The CV is based on the ICV platform due to the close parallels of operational requirements and battlefield capabilities between the two systems. The CV is an organic vehicle to the ICV maneuver formation and helps maximize commonality of the platform while simultaneously reducing the maintenance footprint and variety of logistics support.

The commander must be able to direct actions and synchronize combat power to achieve dominance. The platform must be able to integrate the appropriate communications suite to accomplish this task.
