3 AFC2IC Strategy Joint Concept Focus Efficiently align near, mid, and far term efforts Initial analysis lays the foundation for future analyses and studies to achieve an end-state as described within the Joint Concept 2010 2018 2030 2012 Near-Term: JWIN JCTD Mid-Term: JALN AoA Far-Term: JALN Control Joint Concept Joint Aerial Layer Network Initial Capabilities Document Supports Capabilities 2012 – 2020 shaped by Analysis of Alternatives (AoA) Joint Warfighter Integrated NetOps JCTD Tool Integration Display Development Policy & Processes

4 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. 4 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

5 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 Warfighting Integrated NetOps (JWIN)

6 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 6 Three Core Functions: Distribution/Access/Range Extension (DARE) capability Transition capability High capacity backbone capability Four Capability Gaps: Connectivity Capacity Share Information & Data Network Management

7 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 7

8 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 5 th 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. 5 th /4 th Generation
