Textron’s New iCommand 2.5 Delivers Improved Performance and Scalability

AUSTIN, Texas —  Textron Systems Advanced Information Solutions, an operating unit of Textron Systems, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) business, announced today the release of the new version of its iCommand® integrated command suite, iCommand 2.5.

iCommand 2.5 collates and collapses previously disparate data and systems onto a single pane of glass and adds mission critical contextual information to raw data.  iCommand 2.5’s ease of use and configuration enables connected elements to quickly integrate and visualize real-time data from remote platforms including sensors, operational assets and a variety of information and operations feeds.

Using its intuitive web based interface, operators are able to dynamically manage critical aspects of the data including name, symbology, attribution, layering and attachments. iCommand 2.5 leverages the existing network infrastructure and deployed transport layers, maximizing enterprise efficiencies and reducing the costs and complexities of deploying technologies critical to mission success.

iCommand 2.5 operates in a disconnected, intermittent and limited (DIL) environment that supports bandwidth optimization for both entity data and video streams. The newest version’s messaging middleware utilizes the Apache Kafka™ high performance messaging queue that delivers horizontal scalability and fault tolerance, achieving a fivefold increase in throughput and number of tracked entities.

The new integrated command suite delivers interactive mission planning with multiple time based courses of action. iCommand 2.5 delivers the ability to create custom and standard georeferenced entities, setup automated alerting and event logging.

“iCommand 2.5 enhances interactions and collaboration between mission commanders and tactical edge users for greater performance and scalability in robust operations,” says Daryl Madden, Textron Systems Senior Vice President and General Manager of Advanced Information Solutions. “It takes the capabilities of our previous iCommand solution to the next level and expands its application to a wider range of environments. With increased information access, users are able to maintain a tactical advantage like never before.”

iCommand 2.5 offers enhanced recorded video review, enabling users to start and stop video stream feeds and review video data captured over a 48-hour period. Additionally, users will have the capability to share GeoMarkers with other users in a public or private paradigm.
