FedScoop: The Navy is just as invested in the military’s new Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2) as the other services are, top officials said Thursday. While the Air Force has taken the lead on developing the technical backbone of the network-of-networks, the Navy says it is right in the mix.
The Navy has been talking less publicly about its participation, the officials said, in order to protect the security of the system. Naval forces play a critical role in JADC2, given that they operate in multiple domains and are focused on the Indo-Pacific region, where great-power competition with China is already playing out. JADC2 is the military’s big bet on connecting “every sensor to every shooter,” as the saying goes — including those at sea.
