CDAO to Push Global Information Dominance Experiments to Further Advance CJADC2

Deputy Defense Secretary Kathleen Hicks has announced that the Department of Defense Chief Digital and Artificial Intelligence Office will continue the accelerated Global Information Dominance Experiments in 2024 to advance further the DOD’s Combined Joint All-Domain Command and Control concept.

Speaking at the Defense Data and AI Symposium in Washington on Thursday, Hicks, a past Potomac Officers Club event speaker, said GIDE’s “blisteringly fast pace” of work every 90 days in 2023 shall be maintained. She also disclosed that through the support of CDAO and its GIDE partners, CJADC2 has achieved “minimum viable capability” in linking the U.S. armed forces sensors into a unified network, C4ISRNET reported  

According to the defense news website, the U.S. Army’s Project Convergence focused on artificial intelligence as a contribution to the DOD’s Joint All-Domain Command and Control program will be linked to future GIDE staging.

In her symposium speech, Hicks emphasized AI’s critical role in CJADC2, saying the DOD’s investments in the technology empower warfighters. 

The department’s fiscal 2024 budget provides $1.4 billion for CJADC2’s goal of transforming how the U.S. military operates, especially with foreign allies.
