The Special Operations Command (COPESP)
The primary concern of the COPESP is national security, and ensuring that there is stability across the country means the army must be well trained in employing both tactics and technology. A shining example of this marriage is the Mobile Platform C2. A military truck, the Mobile Platform C2 has a load capacity of 17 tons, 2x4 traction, a 12 KVA generator that feeds all of the internal equipment, and can run 2000 km without refueling. The vehicle allows COPESP to operationalize intelligence by smoothly integrating the subsystem ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance) with C4 (Command, Control, Communications and Computers). This framework is grounded in the use of modern technologies and is extremely flexible. It has the ability to incorporate new and/or peripheral systems that work on a digital signal, like video captured by VIVOTEK’s cameras, for example. For the duration that the World Cup was happening in Brazil, then, this meant that whenever and wherever security was regarded as highly important, the Mobile Platform C2 was dispatched.
