Battle Command Support and Sustainment System (BCS3) - is the logistics element of MCS. It provides logistics information critical to operations and enhances the ability to manage sustainment operations through end to end visibility. BCS3 fuses sustainment information from numerous sources into one user-defined; mission focused and tailored map-centric visual display by providing graphics that are scalable to the display requirements of tactical, operational and strategic users’ needs. BCS3 provides in-transit visibility to show critical supply and transportation asset information by displaying asset visibility throughout the supply chain from the point of shipment to final destination and tracking resources and establishes automated alerts when critical resources require tracking or are below required levels. BCS3 is used at U.S. Army echelons from battalion to corps.
