Concept
Focus
2030
Initial analysis lays the foundation for
future analyses and studies to
achieve an end-state as described
within the Joint Concept
Mobile Unified Communications
Experiment
Warfighter Challenge:
The Air Force and Army lack an affordable, rapidly deployable mobile cellular
network to support respective missions.
AFC2IC Approach:
Provide live, virtual and constructive
environment to assess the technical
feasibility and military utility in establishing
a tactical cellular network rapidly via
Existing affordable commercial technology.
Air Force, Army and Coast Guard personnel
will conduct operational threads to assess
mobile technologies, devices and
applications.
Experiment Objectives:
•Assess ability to link to current AF unified
communications pilot architecture
•Assess selected agile combat support
activities in a deployed environment
leveraging mobile connectivity
•Assess commercial mobile technology’s
ability to enhance AF and Army Ops

Joint Warfighting Integrated
NetOps (JWIN)
Warfighter Challenge:
The JTF requires the ability to
C2 tactical edge networks and
prioritize resources in accordance
with the Commander's intent.
AFC2IC Approach:
Leverage Joint Tactical Edge
Network WG, Service Lab efforts &
COTS technologies to demonstrate
a capability that provides the JTF &
Component CC’s an integrated SA picture of tactical networks. Creates a
framework for centralized control (analyze CC’s intent) while allowing
decentralized execution and (Service level) network optimization.
Transition:
Use Joint Aerial Layer Network analysis results to develop Capability
Development Document. Create a Tactical Edge Network C2 PoR starting in FY
13.
Joint Aerial Layer Network (JALN)
Overview
• Initial Capabilities Document (ICD) approved Oct 09
• JALN, when employed, supports net-centric, Command & Control
(C2) and Battlespace Awareness requirements for National and
Defense senior leaders, COCOMs, and joint forces at all echelons
• The JALN will:
•
•
•
•
•
Integrate with space and surface layers
Increase communications access for the joint force at all levels
Enable on-the-move (OTM) and over-the-horizon (OTH) / beyond line of sight
(BLOS) communications
Provide modular, scalable, and flexible operational capabilities
Provide “mission persistent” connectivity as specified by the commander
Four Capability Gaps:
•
•
•
•
Connectivity
Capacity
Share Information & Data
Network Management
Three Core Functions:
•
•
•
Distribution/Access/Range
Extension (DARE) capability
Transition capability
High capacity backbone

JALN Current Status
and Way Ahead
• Analysis of Alternatives (AoA) currently underway
• Led by Office of the Secretary of Defense (Networks and
Information Integration) with support from all Services
• AFC2IC coordinating AF support
• 170+ Air Force personnel engaged in some capacity
• Aggressive 9-month effort
• Due to be completed 01 Aug 11
• Conducting performance and cost analyses
• AoA results will impact OSD Program Objective Memorandum
(POM) 13 issue papers
• Expect multiple Capability Development Documents to close
Initial Capability Document gaps

5th/4th Generation
Warfighter Challenge:
COCOMs require 5th Gen fighter
data to be shared with assets
across the battlespace including
4th Gen fighters, Integrated Air and
Missile Defense & C2 nodes.
AFC2IC Approach:
Develop an airborne gateway able
to translate & distribute 5th Gen
Information via existing Link-16 architecture. This critical force multiplier
allows Commanders to leverage advanced sensors operating at the tactical
edge to increase force integration, weapons efficiency and situational
awareness.
Transition:
Analyze/select potential host platforms. Build Capability Description Document
based on JALN AoA results. Create a Medium Altitude Tactical Gateway PoR
starting in FY13.
