New DOD Office to Integrate Various Joint All-Domain Command and Control Initiatives
The Department of Defense has established the Acquisition, Integration and Interoperability Office, tasking it with managing and speeding up the integration of Joint All-Domain Command and Control projects in development across the various military services. Dave Tremper, electronic warfare director at the Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment, was named the leader of the new division. At the same time, DOD’s chief data and artificial intelligence officer is expected to head data integration efforts for JADC2, DefenseScoop reported Wednesday.
One recent development with DOD’s interoperability initiative is the addition of 30 vendors to a $950 million contract. The U.S. Air Force tapped commercial organizations from all across the country to compete for JADC2 work, including Siemens Government Technologies, Orbital Insight and Agile Defense.
In September, Northrop Grumman and Cubic Mission and Performance Solutions demonstrated a high-capacity gateway system that enables users to rapidly deploy technologies to the tactical edge. According to Northrop’s director of network solutions, the platform unified various “disparate systems” into an interoperability solution for JADC2.
Northrop was one of five companies named to an industry group tasked with directing the Advanced Battle Management System, the Air Force’s JADC2 project centered around the establishment of a disaggregated sensor network.
