Lockheed’s C2 Software Deployed in INDOPACOM’s First Joint Fires Network Prototype Test

The Department of Defense’s Joint Fires Network prototype demonstrated during the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command’s Valiant Shield 2024 exercise held from June 7 to 18 incorporated Lockheed Martin’s digital command and control capabilities

According to the company, the JFN demo tested third-party solutions as an infrastructure component in addressing combatant commands’ immediate needs and supporting the Combined Joint All-Domain Command and Control effort

The multidomain battle management, command and control software that Lockheed contributed to JFN integrated other industry technologies. The software is designed for streamlined operations, with intuitive machine interactions enhancing workflow.

The JFN prototype is designed to enable simultaneous battle planning and execution among geographically separate commanders through sensors sending targeting instructions to weapon systems, Lockheed Martin said.

During the VS24 exercise, Lockheed”s advanced C2 capabilities supported real-time decision-making across all the participating services’ operational planning. Erika Marshall, Lockheed Martin C4ISR vice president and a 4×24 member, said the planning capabilities that the company’s C2 technology delivers ensure that U.S. servicemen have the needed tools for “faster, more effective mission integration.”
