This thesis is a summary of the capabilities of the Army Tactical Command and Control System (ATCCS) and the guiding Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence (C4I) documents as they apply to the ATCCS. Its purpose is to strengthen the knowledge base of Army officers entering the Joint C4I curriculum by providing a summary of Joint and Army C4 doctrine and guidance as it applies to ATCCS. ATCCS is the Army's primary Command and Control (C2) system at echelons corps and below. ATCCS consists of five smaller systems, each a Battlefield Functional Area Control System (BFACS) controlling seven Battlefield Functional Areas (BFA). The five BFACS are: the Maneuver Control System (MCS), the Advanced Field Artillery Tactical Data System (AFATDS) , the Forward Area Air Defense Command, Control and Intelligence System (FAAD c2I), the Combat Service Support Control System (CSSCS), and the All Source Analysis System (ASAS). A clear strategy for the functional design of ATCCS is supported by three documents. Related to and supportive of each other, the three documents are: Joint Pub 6-0, Doctrine for Command, Control, Communications and Computer Systems Support to Joint Operations; The Army Enterprise Strategy consisting of The Vision and The Implementation Plan; and Army Field Manual 100- 5, Operations. This thesis draws threads of continuity from joint doctrine through Army guidance into implementation in ATCCS
