Great power competition is upon us. Our adversaries are prepared for sophisticated conflicts across multiple domains that employ denial of communications and information advantage capabilities. This fundamental shift in warfare requires a change in the way the U.S. military prepares and positions for conflict. Winning future conflicts depends on near real-time decision making informed by data that has no domain, organization or national boundaries.
In a recent speech, Chief of Naval Research Rear Admiral Lorin Selby said “data is the new oil. Software is the new steel.” This is a brilliant analogy for the importance of information and advanced software needed to fuel our future warfighter and achieve Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2).
