Communications systems program managers, active duty military supporting mobile executive and tactical communications, security/IA managers, policymakers in defense, foreign relations, and decision makers from Executive and tactical communications teams. Representatives from the special operations, Combatant Commands, DISA, and commanding generals’ communications teams have been invited to brief.
The forum will work to close the communications gap between government and industry by validating and documenting requirements and CONOPS from the user and operator perspective alongside the engineers from industry designing and integrating these communications systems. This is accomplished with open discussions and feedback on the performance of existing systems and by identify gaps the systems have while addressing the technical and security issues often overlooked or misunderstood. Future \systems ideas are presented and obtain real time feedback from the users to assist with the product development. Government communications teams also have the opportunity to participate in educational forums and working groups to solve common challenges across the DoD.
With the announcement of the Army’s new Future Command, edge computing was one of the “innovative technologies” that the new headquarters will adopt to prepare soldiers for modern warfare. Moreover, executive leader and tactical communications teams have a desire to modernize their communications systems, the support of those systems, and the services offered by these systems for their leadership and operators. Historically the executive and tactical communications systems have been separated but technology today allows us to combine these systems allowing them to scale supporting small travel teams to forward headquarters. These requirements have led to the development of the Tactical Processing Node and Modular Internet Protocol Package (MIPP) Light/Medium/Heavy by JCSE, the Early Entry Package (EEP) and Executive Communications Kit (ECK) supporting both tactical and Executive communications.
