The Indispensable Domain: The Critical Role of Space in JADC2
Coming out of the Cold War, the U.S. military possessed the capabilities and capacity to dominate global military operations when and where it chose. Due to three decades of budget-driven force structure divestments, this is no longer the case, and U.S. military capabilities and capacity simply have not tracked with growing peer adversary threats. Furthermore, adversary strategies that prioritize information and decision-making superiority indicate that success in future wars will go to the side that possesses better battlespace knowledge, makes better decisions, more efficiently directs its forces ,and closes kill chains faster. Space will empower all these critical actions. This is the vision of Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2). JADC2 will collect information from any sensor and any domain, rapidly transmit large volumes of data across vast physical distances, process the information to support dynamic battle management and commander decisions, and then ensure that the right information gets to the right warfighters at the right time to achieve the desired effect, all at a global scale.
