Space in Transition

Space Force is still new. DIU, SSC and DISA are undergoing transitions. With space being a critical consideration for future offensive and defensive actions such as attempts to knock out satellite communications, is the U.S. in position to meet its space needs? If not, what does it need to ensure it can maintain a tactical advantage?

The State of JADC2

The Department of Defense has been pursuing the JADC2 initiative to connect every asset on the battlefield, with the goal of real-time information sharing between every troop, vehicle, ship, airplane and commander involved, regardless of which branch they are from. Where does the initiative stand? What are the current realities of JADC2, and how do we get from where we are now to the end goal?

The Future of Electronic Warfare

Cheap, expendable drones, offensive and defensive cyber capabilities and hypersonic missiles have led to a drastic rethinking of what electronic warfare is and how it can be successfully executed. Counterdrone and countermissile strategies are top of mind for the armed forces, as is protecting sensitive systems from crippling cyberattacks. In this panel, C4ISRNET will examine the state of electronic warfare now as well as the major priorities for the future.

Panel Discussion:

  • Brig. Gen. Ed Barker, Program Executive Officer, PEO IEW&S
  • Col. Josh Koslov, Commander, 350th Spectrum Warfare Wing

Keeping up with the Military's Cyber Needs

The DoD collects and sorts through staggering amounts of data every day, requiring a cyber infrastructure robust enough to make rapid decisions on time-sensitive issues. Is the current cyber infrastructure good enough? Can the U.S. government keep up with the DoD’s needs as the appetite for data and the tools to manage it continue to grow?
