What is C2 (Command and Control) Software?

Glossary Definition

In the context of surveillance, command and control (C2) software refers to computer solutions that are used to manage and direct the operation of surveillance systems. These software solutions typically provide a user interface that allows operators to monitor and control the surveillance system, as well as to analyze and disseminate the information that is collected by the system. C2 software may be used to manage a single surveillance system, or it may be used to oversee multiple systems that are dispersed across a large area. C2 software may also provide features such as alerts and notifications, real-time video feeds, and the ability to remotely activate and deactivate sensors and other equipment. The goal of C2 software in surveillance is to provide a centralized and efficient means of managing and directing the operation of the surveillance system.
