Air Force Seeks $302M Budget to Lead JADC2 Development

The Air Force is requesting $302M from the Senate to lead the development of the Joint All-Domain Command and Control system.

In a hearing with the Senate Armed Services Committee, Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein said the service wants to lead the initiative to “truly operate at the speed of relevance.” According to the Air Force’s budget proposal, the budget will be used to acquire the necessary platforms, sensors and systems, Fedscoop reported Tuesday.

While the Air Force already operates in the JADC2’s space, air and cyber domains, Goldfein remained mum on other capabilities that the service hopes to lead on.

Air Force Secretary Barbara Barrett sees the JADC2 as an expansion of the foundation of the service’s Advanced Battle Management System.
