The Department of the Air Force gathered leaders from both its service branches to standardize joint all-domain command and control processes at this year's annual C2 Summit. The event ran from Jan. 12 to 13th at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada, with the participation of U.S. Air Force, U.S. Space Force and joint senior leaders, USAF said Wednesday.
Attendees discussed a range of joint force-related topics such as USAF's Advanced Battle Management System (ABMS), a new technology designed to facilitate real-time information sharing and analysis across a joint force.
The event also featured discussions on C2 technology training, doctrine development, budgeting and USSF's integration into the JADC2 concept.
“The U.S. Space Force was a priority topic of discussion on the summit’s agenda in making sure that we're able to enhance integration of the space domain into joint warfighting,” said Col. Alan Docauer, chief of Air Combat Command's Directorate of Operations, C2, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Operations.
The U.S. military envisions the JADC2 concept as an integrated network of battlefield sensors from all the service branches.
