Command, Control, Communications, and Computers (C4)

Program Executive Office for Command, Control, Communications, and Computers (PEO-C4) manages the development, acquisition, and fielding of C4 and Military Information Support Operations (MISO) systems that collectively form the SOF Information Environment (SIE). The SIE is an extension of the Department of Defense (DOD) Global Information Grid (GIG) that provides additional Special Operations-peculiar capabilities and extends those capabilities to remote, austere locations. It allows garrison and tactical Special Operations Forces (SOF) users to reach back into the GIG to access national assets, allowing SOF elements to operate with any force combination in multiple environments.

PEO-C4's portfolio consists of 14 programs with a budget of over $3.8 billion across the Future Years Defense Plan. It includes three primary capability areas:

  • Enterprise Networks;
  • Transport Systems;
  • Tactical Communications

PEO-C4 will continue to focus on the integration of state-of-the-art technologies and standardization throughout the SOF community. An additional future priority is ensuring voice, video, data, and services—regardless of the source—can be properly accessed, processed, and stored and made available immediately to worldwide SOF users through enterprise services. PEO-C4's efforts emphasize the utilization of commercial off-the-shelf products and the leveraging of DOD and other government agency programs to supplement SOF capabilities.
