A new warfighting concept the Department of Defense calls “joint all-domain operations” will be the focus of the Potomac Officers Club’s 2021 JADO Forum scheduled to take place on April 15 from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. ET.
DOD is updating its military command and control approach through the use of emerging technology and modern communication tools as part of its Joint All-Domain Command and Control framework, according to a new Congressional Research Service report. The Washington, D.C.-based public policy think tank says the JADC2 is envisioned as a single cloud-like network that will connect sensors from all six military branches to help the joint force exchange intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance data as well as transmit information across multiple communication systems to accelerate battlespace decision-making.
Join DOD and GovCon industry representatives at the upcoming virtual event, hosted by the Potomac Officers Club, for a discussion on initiatives, priorities and challenges in enabling the warfighting strategy for multiple domains. Register here.
