Not many details yet, but I thought this was cool because they're testing it here and a lot of our high tech companies are involved with it.

That's odd. It worked for me just fine. The gist of the article is a new Humvee that they are developing for Command and Control.

"The Mobile Modular Command and Control vehicle is currently under development at Marine Corps Base Hawaii, Kaneohe Bay. The new vehicle is equipped with radios, communication computers, and satellite links. This new device allows communication to be up and running while the vehicle is in motion — something that currently cannot be done.
In order to set up a field communications command, Marines, today, must use three trucks, three trailers, and three Humvees in order to transport the equipment needed to setup to establish communication between command and field units. "

Right now it's a big dome that sits ontop of the vehicle but several companies here in Hawaii are working on making it 5 flat panel phased array antennas, so that it wont' be so obvious which Humvee it is that is the C2 vehicle. They're talking about using it as a command vehicle for disaster relief as part of its mission. It will be able to datalink to other Humvees with the same capabilities.

"Computers on the M2C2 also contain a chat program, which will be used in the field between the units and the command. M2C2 contains a command and control computer that tracks every vehicle and unit on a map and transmits the information to headquarters. One device on the vehicle is the TalkNet radio. This radio allows the M2C2 to talk to all radios in the area from one microphone.

“The M2C2 also supplies its own power,” said Fresno, Calif. native, Cpl. Brenton D. Phillips, 21, a small-computers specialist assigned to Headquarters and Service Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, Communications. “It contains three, two-hundred and seventy-five watt power generators that powers everything in the vehicle. Now we would never have to turn things off.”
