The JADC2 strategy envisions the creation of a massive “network of networks”, sharing intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance from sensors in air, land, sea, space, cyberspace and the electromagnetic spectrum. , identifying the appropriate units or platforms to deal with threats, and connecting them with the necessary information. To realize this vision, the Pentagon will need to use advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, cloud computing and new methods of communication.
The Pentagon originally appointed 27 JADC2 contractors in May 2020 and has since added other vendors to support the program.
