The U.S. Army and the U.S. Air Force have teamed up to develop the Combined Joint All-Domain Command and Control concept.
The two service branches will define standards for sharing of data and service interfacing under a two-year CJADC2 collaboration agreement, the Air Force said Friday.
The Air Force’s office of strategy, integration and requirements, A-5, and Army Futures Command will oversee the CJADC2 program, which would allow each of the services to link sensors, command nodes and shooters through a “mesh network” to help commanders immediately decide and act on the battlefield based on collected reconnaissance and intelligence data.
Under the agreement, the Advanced Battlefield Management System of the Air Force and Space Force will be combined with the Army’s Project Convergence.
“The core challenges of the future fight are speed and scale,” said Lt. Gen. Charles Flynn, Army deputy chief of staff, G-3/5/7. “The future fight will be much faster, and the joint force will have more sensors and more shooters. (It will) be more widely distributed than ever before."
