Pentagon’s Deputy CDAO Says Budget Issues Could Impact JADC2 Accessibility

Margaret Palmieri, deputy chief digital and artificial intelligence officer, said budget issues could impact the Joint All-Domain Command and Control‘s accessibility.

Speaking at a Hudson Institute event, Palmieri, who will speak at an upcoming Potomac Officers Club event, shared that while JADC2 achieved minimum viable capability during the Global Information Dominance Experiment 8, the Department of Defense CDAO needs to get the full fiscal year 2024 funding to make it accessible. Palmieri said the CDAO doubled its budget compared to FY 2023.

The House and Senate passed the FY24 National Defense Authorization Act, but Congress has yet to pass an appropriations bill, Breaking Defense reported Wednesday.

Lawmakers have been dedicating time and resources to guarantee JADC2’s success.

In December, Sen. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., filed a bill that would give DOD officials the authority and resources to develop technologies for JADC2 and get them directly to warfighters. Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, also filed the companion Senate bill to Issa’s proposed legislation.

The lawmakers prioritized the identification of new technologies and concepts to support the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command’s area of responsibility.
