The Battle Group and Below Command, Control and Communications (BGC3) system, supplied by Elbit Systems for the Australian Army’s Land 75/125 program, will increase the commander’s battlespace awareness, automate combat messaging, and assist in the execution of operations.

Elbit Systems Ltd. has been awarded a contract from the Department of Defence of the Commonwealth of Australia for the supply, integration, installation, and support of a Battle Group and Below Command, Control and Communications (BGC3) system for the Australian Army’s Land 75/125 program. The BGC3 comprises a battle-management system for soldiers, vehicle-mounted commanders, and headquarters/command post staff. This project, to be performed over the next three years, will help the Australian Army to achieve its goal of a networked brigade with advanced technology in battle management and communications systems. The capability will increase the commander’s battlespace awareness, automate combat messaging, and assist in the execution of operations, which ultimately will help improve the protection and coordination for Australian Defence Forces personnel. The contract is worth about US$298 million (approximately $331 million Australian).
