Linking command nodes and communication nodes
Connecting the Joint Force as One
Future mission success will lay in highly-effective Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2)
‘Joining Forces’ has always been a critical factor in creating extra strength
In the future, more than ever before, mission advantage will go to military forces who can coordinate and act together across all domains. Observing, orienting, deciding and acting together, faster and with greater effect than their adversaries is the next-gen technological edge for Joint Forces. And, whether Joint Forces are across United States military branches including the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Marines, U.S. Space Force, or in partnership with allies―future mission success will lay in highly-effective Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2).
Ars Technicast Special Edition: The Internet of Military Things
For decades, the US Department of Defense has been trying to make the tools we use to fight battles more like the tools we use in peacetime with more connectivity, more data, and more smarts. The difference this time around, is that technology has caught up to the point where what we can do in real life almost mirrors what we can do in movies. To learn more, listen to Scott Stapp, Chief Technology Officer, Northrop Grumman on Ars Technica’s podcast. Listen to Podcast >
Ensuring Mission Advantage for Our Navy Across All Domains
Northrop Grumman systems, sensors and technologies help connect and control the Joint Force. We deliver next-gen capabilities to the Fleet that enable true multi-domain operations and mission success.
Enabling Our Army to Dominate in Every Domain
Northrop Grumman provides the sensors, systems and technologies essential to connecting and controlling the Joint Force. We deliver transformational capability to the Army for multi-domain operations success.
The Future of the Joint Force – Multi-Domain Connections
JADC2 connects distributed sensors, shooters and data from all domains to all forces. It provides a decisive advantage to the warfighter by connecting platforms and weapons across a common architecture regardless of service or domain. These modernized military systems, secure networks and communications networking will use new technology and processes to connect people and data to ensure faster, better decisions to enable mission success.
We’re at the Forefront of Military Technological Advancement with the Joint Force
Northrop Grumman has built pioneering global security systems for generations. We were there at pivotal national defense and security milestones in the past century. Our multi-domain experience spans from building the first airplanes and developing the first radars to creating the Apollo Lunar Module and the world’s smallest microchip.
Today, Northrop Grumman is at the forefront of military technological and open-architecture advancements that enable the Joint Force. We have developed or currently play a critical role in delivering pathfinder capabilities that will deliver command and control in secure networks across each branch of the military, including the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Space Force and U.S. Marines as well as partner countries including Australia, United Kingdom, Japan and Korea.
How Northrop Grumman Connects the Multi-Domain Battlespace
Northrop Grumman already leads the way in providing systems that enable command and control across domains. We are bringing our expertise in advanced technology, software, platform integration, advanced sensors, autonomy, manned-unmanned teaming, and advanced networking across all domains to support emerging JADC2 needs across the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) and our allies. We’re enabling the DOD to realize the vision of the National Defense Strategy and we’re committed to bringing future global security all-domain systems to reality.
While at the forefront of many of these efforts, we are partnering with the U.S. DOD, allied nations, and leading defense and non-traditional technology companies to develop the agile, technologically-advanced open-architecture systems of the future.
