The mobile command centers also establish links among deployed disaster response units and provide situation awareness or damage assessments to the decision-makers for a responsive humanitarian assistance and disaster response (HADR) operations.
The CGPA also witnessed the capability demonstration of the ASR's Deployable Signal Teams meant for HADR operations and the Cybersecurity Incident Response Team whose mission is to minimize and control the damage resulting from incidents, provide effective response and recovery, and prevent future cyberattacks in the organization.
"We at the Philippine Army do not stop from adapting to the dynamics of our security environment. These capabilities will help us ensure that we are ready to respond to any eventuality, be it from natural disasters, cyberthreats and most especially threats to national security," said Gapay.
This Mobile Command Center is mounted on a Vietnam-war-era Kaiser Jeep M715, refurbished like many other ones in the Philippine army.
