JADC2: The Business Foundation of Treating Data as a Weapon System

Presented by

Chip Downing, Senior Market Development Director, Aerospace and Defense, RTI

About this talk

The war in Ukraine emphasizes the need to manage a military posture that places the United States and our global coalition partners in a heightened state of competition with malign actors worldwide. Synthesizing data from coalition partners and allies into information and intelligence that drives understanding and enables accelerated decision-making in a multi-domain environment provides both a posture to avoid a potential conflict, and also the decision-making advantage over adversaries if a large-scale conflict evolves. For this reason, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) created the Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2) strategy. JADC2 describes the urgent need to empower our Joint Force Commanders with required sensor data to drive the understanding needed to command and control (C2) kinetic and non-kinetic weapons capabilities across all domains – to deter, and if necessary, defeat any adversary at any time and in any place around the globe. To succeed, the JADC2 strategy requires the unimpeded delivery of real-time data that enables situational awareness over Zero Trust networks to Joint Force Commanders, regardless of the military domain or location. To accomplish this goal, we must embrace the U.S. DoD Strategy that transforms the DoD into a data-centric organization using data at speed and scale for operational advantage and increased efficiency and to “treat data as a weapon system and manage, secure and use data for operational effect.” This webinar will describe the current state of the JADC2 strategy from a business perspective. We will also detail the requirements for creating a data-centric framework for JADC2 that enables real-time data sharing technologies to deliver information and decision-making dominance to Joint Force Commanders.
