The advanced communications center is a GDI superior communications center in Tiberian Dawn.

Background

It was externally distinguished from its more basic cousin by built-up transmitter arrays and an enlarged transmitter dish. Not immediately apparent was the enhancement of function; the advanced communications center held the equipment needed to interface with and call fire from the ion cannon.

Directing the ion cannon required a continuous link between the structure and satellite. If the ground station was disabled by a black out the ion cannon ceases repositioning until the uplink was re-established.

The advanced communications center also relayed targeting data to the Ion Cannon from GS-2 beacons placed by front-line troops.

Prior to the Second Tiberium War, the Ion Cannon uplink was modularized as a plug-in for the upgrade center.
