Abstract : By the year 2035, the Department of Defense will see the maturation and integration of a unique family-of-systems that will facilitate innovative, new capabilities to enable the Global Strike mission. For the purposes of this paper, Global Strike is defined as the ability to strike any target, anywhere, in any domain, on demand, in order to achieve strategic objectives. Key to success of the capability will be the command and control architecture that must fuse information from multiple, distributed sources to achieve global awareness and understanding and then translate that understanding into action.
