The United States and its allies face an increasingly contested security environment, with wars in Europe and the Middle East and armed confrontations happening every day in the South and East China Seas. Although these conflicts highlight the importance of weapons capacity, they have also demonstrated that superior decision-making and orchestration can allow smaller, less capable forces to gain the upper hand.

In response to these challenges, the US military seeks to better integrate forces and enable innovative tactics through its Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2) initiative. JADC2 has not yet delivered on its promise of connecting shooters, sensors, and decision-makers, but it has highlighted that the US military needs to digitally integrate forces, and not just link their networks. In the same way that US forces became joint through training and doctrine in the last century, success today requires that the US integrates its forces at a machine-to-machine level.

Please join the National Defense Industrial Association’s Emerging Technology Institute and Hudson Institute’s Center for Defense Concepts and Technology for a daylong symposium in which defense and industry leaders will examine the technical dimensions of joint integration. These experts will explore how US and allied forces can combine more effectively using emerging technologies for communications, data engineering, network management, and analytics, and how the Pentagon and its industry partners should change to exploit the opportunities joint integration presents.
