Forward Under New Command and Control Agreemen


Forward Under New Command and Control Agreement
Oct. 19, 2020 | By Rachel S. Cohen

Air Force and Army leaders recently reached an agreement to partner more closely on joint all-domain command and control over the next two years, hoping that collaboration will help achieve their combat goals faster.

Each military department has its own venture to create a battle network that connects assets like tanks and aircraft with sensors to track, target, and attack more efficiently. The Air Force runs the Advanced Battle Management System plan, the Army calls its own work “Project Convergence,” and the Navy has a parallel effort dubbed “Project Overmatch.”

“We’re trying to build the interconnected digital infrastructure needed to allow individual services to bring their own capabilities and connect to one another, much like we do in our daily lives at home with personal devices,” a Department of the Air Force spokesperson said.
