Dozens of firms line up to compete in JADC2
Development of a Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2) system continued on 12 January with the latest contract announcement from the DoD.
A-Tech, KPMG and Perspecta Labs are among the 37 companies (mainly SMEs specialising in software integration) selected by the USAF to compete for awards totalling up to $950 million.
These future contracts will be completed by the end of May 2025.
The companies will compete for ‘future efforts associated with the maturation, demonstration and proliferation of capability across platforms and domains, leveraging open systems design, modern software and algorithm development in order to enable Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2)’, the DoD noted.
With JADC2, the Pentagon envisages a unified military internet covering all domains (air, land, sea, space, cyber and the electromagnetic spectrum) in an open architecture family of systems that enables capabilities via multiple integrated platforms.
