Satellite Communications Command Post

The PLA has been utilising satellite communications (SATCOM) in its C3I system since the early 1990s. Currently the PLA ground forces are deploying a mobile SATCOM command post that can feed voice and data transmissions back into the headquarters from anywhere across the country. The command post can be used as a part of an integrated SATCOM command and control network.


The command post is carried in a workshop mounted on a 6X6 cross-country truck. The workshop is divided into equipment compartment at front, and passenger compartment in the rear. The passenger compartment is air-conditioned to provide a suitable environment for the equipment and staffs. A SATCOM antenna radome is mounted on the roof of the workshop.


The command posts consists of a number of subsystems, including satellite communications, antenna control, video conference, surveillance TV, IP telephone, and power supply. The vehicle can serve as a stand-along mobile command post, or as a C3I terminal to transmit voice and data to the theatre C3I centre. It also enables field officers in different locations to exchange information and receive orders from the theatre headquarters..
