Abstract:

The intensity and frequency of joint and combined operations, including Operations Other Than War OOTW, and the accelerating technological advances in Command and Control C2 have highlighted C2 interoperability issues. Communications are increasingly software-driven, which makes the role of software architecture increasingly important in the design of interoperable communications systems. Simulation has an important role to play in defining and resolving interoperability issues stemming from requirements, policies, and procedures. Interoperability is such a challenge that the security implications of enhanced interoperability are often not considered. This paper suggests that the CCRP consider publishing a volume on C2 interoperability that codifies the body of knowledge developed by the JC2I2G offices. The paper is divided into the following sections formation of the Joint Command and Control Integration Interoperability Group JC2I2G and the CINC Interoperability Program Offices CIPOs, the software-driven interoperability domain, simulation and interoperability, software architecture, and interoperability and information security.
