When the Army, Navy and Air Force conduct joint operations, a request to engage a target often has to pass multiple communications systems and manual approvals, thus slowing down a process that depends on speed.
Tuesday, Nov. 15, members of the U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command’s communications-electronics center (CERDEC) discussed how they have successfully executed multiple projects to enable efficient rapid-information sharing across disparate Joint networks and mission command systems – in particular, their successes during a recent multi-service limited technology experiment.
Joining us on the call were Alex O’Ree, a computer scientist in the Systems Engineering and Architecture Branch for the CERDEC Command and Control Directorate; Christopher Shin, a computer scientist in the Systems Engineering and Software Architectures Branch for the CERDEC Command and Control Directorate; and Ron Szymanski, Chief Architect for Software & Technology in the Command and Control Directorate at CERDEC. Mr. Szymanski currently provides technical oversight to dozens of C2 related software efforts across two divisions.
Joining us on the roundtable were David Axe, of War is Boring; Gail Harris, of Foreign Policy Blog; Tom Goering, of Navy Cyberspace; Jared Serbu, of Federal News Radio; and Michelle Cowell of Military Matters.
