Emerging technologies pose opportunities for revolutionary new operating concepts and also create challenges for synchronizing operations across domains. From distributed sensors and mesh networks to new satellite systems and artificial intelligence, the U.S. Department of Defense is developing concepts and technologies to integrate multi-domain command and control. The newest iteration of this development is Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2).
On Wednesday, May 20, 2020, the CNAS Technology and National Security Program hosted a virtual panel on emerging concepts in joint command and control featuring Hon. Robert O. Work, Senior Counselor for Defense at the Center for a New American Security and former Deputy Secretary of Defense, and Chris Dougherty, Senior Fellow of the Defense Program. The panel was moderated by Dr. Paul Scharre, Director of the CNAS Technology and National Security Program.
