This roadmap will be the vehicle for prioritizing, aligning, and synchronizing Service JBMC2 architectural and acquisition efforts. Where policy and other acquisition initiatives are defined to drive JBMC2 developments and related activities, the specific means of application to JBMC2 will be via updates to this roadmap and decisions made by the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics (USD(AT&L)) and U.S. Joint Forces Command (USJFCOM) to ensure overall harmonization across affected efforts and programs. This roadmap provides a strategy with three major parts for integrating current and planned JBMC2 capabilities.
Central to the transformation of U.S. Forces are development and fielding of integrated Joint Battle Management Command and Control (JBMC2) capabilities to enable U.S. forces to collaboratively plan and rapidly share an accurate picture of the battlespace. This roadmap provides an overview of JBMC2 capability and Global Information Grid (GIG) development efforts in the Department of Defense. It is intended to assist policymakers and decisionmakers in aligning and integrating Service and Combatant Command doctrine, concept development and acquisition efforts. The goal of this roadmap is to provide a coherent and executable plan for fielding integrated JBMC2 capabilities to U.S. Forces.
