AFCEA DC May Virtual Event
The Army’s stated goal to conduct Multi-Domain Operations (MDO) across an array of scenarios in multiple theaters is a vision shared by all the armed forces. The Department of Defense (DoD) is focused on building a modern, innovative joint armed force equipped to defend our nation and national security interests around the world. To that end, Army decision makers want the service to be an early contributor to the new joint architecture for battlefield command and control, known as The Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2). JADC2 will connect sensors from all the military services into a single network. The Army’s goal to enhance the services’ IT infrastructure to connect sensors and personnel will build on data and cloud migrations over the next few years.
The Army has also launched the first of what will likely be many software factories to increase its software development capabilities. Moreover, the service is adopting the enterprise IT as-a-service model to leverage commercially available technologies that will help modernize its enterprise network. On the emerging technology front, the Army has active ongoing research using artificial intelligence to enhance autonomous vehicles, electronic warfare and signal intelligence, sensor fusion, and augmented reality. Meanwhile, Army Cyber Command, which has settled into new headquarters, is positioned to focus on its offensive strategies and influence mission.
Please join AFCEA DC for a virtual symposium on May 11, 2021 as Army decision makers and IT experts discuss how IT and cybersecurity will help the Army be a more modern, innovative, and joint armed force.
