Central to the transformation of U.S. forces, and their ability to operate in a coalition environment, are effective Joint Battle Management Command and Control (JBMC2) capabilities. The goal of this roadmap1 is to develop a coherent and executable plan that will lead to integrated JBMC2 capabilities and interoperable JBMC2 systems that in turn will provide networked joint forces:
• Real-time shared situational awareness at the tactical level and common shared situational awareness at the operational level
• Fused, precise, and actionable intelligence
• Decision superiority enabling more agile, more lethal, and survivable joint operations
• Responsive and precise targeting information for integrated real-time offensive and defensive fires
• The ability to conduct coherent distributed and dispersed operations, including forced entry into anti-access or area-denial environments.
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.
