Army Brig. Gen. Charles “Rob” Parker, J6 deputy director at the Joint Chiefs of Staff, will address the Potomac Officers Club on Wednesday for a virtual forum about the role of data and technology in the Pentagon’s Joint All-Domain Command and Control strategy.
Parker was promoted to the rank of brigadier general in January 2021 and he also serves as chair of the JADC2 Cross-Functional Team, which comprises civilian and military representatives tasked with helping the Department of Defense explore and implement its new warfighting concept.
In a Dec. 6 guest piece for Defense News, Parker and Navy Cmdr. John Stuckey jointly wrote that the JADC2 framework offers an enterprise-wide approach for the joint force to apply C2 technologies in efforts to achieve “information and decision advantage over global adversaries.”
Both officers noted the JADC2 CFT seeks to facilitate the delivery of capabilities across the fighting force via five lines of effort: data enterprise, human enterprise, technical enterprise, integration of nuclear C2 and communications and modernization of mission partner information sharing.
Parker’s keynote speech at POC’s event on Wednesday will be followed by a panel discussion. Michael Davenport, a senior vice president of Booz Allen Hamilton, will lead the group conversation with Col. Cade Saie, chief data officer of the Army’s Network CFT, and Bryan Tipton, chief architect of the Department of the Air Force Rapid Capabilities Office.
