Air Force Official Says JADC2 Kill Chain Architecture in Development

Brig. Gen. Luke Cropsey, program executive officer for command, control, communications and battle management, said the U.S. Air Force is building an architecture for the Joint All-Domain Command and Control initiative’s kill chains.

During a keynote speech at a recent industry event, Cropsey said Air Force Secretary Frank Kendall received the first analysis of that architecture in June and that those with proper security clearances could learn details later in 2023.

Cropsey said that the analysis identifies where the Department of the Air Force Battle Network‘s development could be improved and what programs could be built to fill gaps. He added that a digital infrastructure accompanying the architecture will address connectivity, Breaking Defense reported.

The DAF Battle Network is the result of Kendall’s campaign to consolidate all of the Air Force’s JADC2 contributions. In an earlier interview with Breaking Defense, Cropsey maintained that the Advanced Battle Management System remains the core of the service’s efforts.
