Joint All Domain Command and Control

Friday, February 28, 2020

What is it?

Joint All-Domain Command and Control is a concept that enables the joint force and mission partners, to continuously and rapidly integrate efforts across all domains in near-real time.

JADC2 is not a single physical thing: it is a combination of technology, new processes, and new organizations to enhance situational awareness, decrease reaction time, and enable continuous integration across all domains.

JADC2 will enable any shooter, with any sensor, through any command and control node in near-real time, with the appropriate authorities to employ joint and mission partner effects.

The time gained by increasing interoperability will provide friendly forces decision advantage over adversaries.

What are the current and past efforts of the Army?

There are numerous efforts currently on going related to JADC2 not only internal to the Army but across services.

The Futures and Concepts Center, Army Futures Command is the functional lead, representing the Army throughout JADC2’s development. The Army is working with its fellow services and the joint staff to turn JADC2 into reality by collaborating on how best to approach JADC2. These approaches will include joint as well as service centric solutions.

The Army’s Multi-Domain Operations Concept published in 2018 highlights the need for enhanced all domain command and control across the joint force. JADC2 compliments MDO by developing new ways for the Joint Force to compete with our strategic competitors. There are several ongoing modernization efforts that are related to JADC2.

What continued efforts does the Army have planned?

JADC2 is a combination of new technology, processes and new organizations that will enable the joint force to converge effects. The Army has several on-going modernization efforts to increase interoperability, situational awareness and lethality that will enable any shooter, with any sensor, through any command and control node in near-real time, with the appropriate authorities to employ joint and mission partner effects.

The Army is also working closely with its sister services, allies, and multinational partners to turn this JADC2 into reality.

Why is this important to the Army?

Joint All Domain Command and Control will enable the joint force to maintain situational awareness and converge all domain effects at speed and scale. JADC2 will enable the Army to remain the most lethal and effective land force the world has ever seen by increasing interoperability and allow the Army to rapidly converge all-domain effects faster.
