The Backbone of JADC2: DOD Satellite Communications

The Mitchell Institute invites you to watch our virtual rollout for our newest policy paper, The Backbone of JADC2: Satellite Communications for Information Age Warfare by Gen Kevin P. Chilton, USAF (Ret.), Mitchell Institute’s Explorer Chair for Space Warfighting Studies and Lukas Autenried, Senior Analyst at the Mitchell Institute’s Spacepower Advantage Center of Excellence (MI-SPACE).

Defense experts fundamentally agree that Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2) will prove critical in future military operations. To put it simply, information and decision superiority will spell the difference between victory and defeat. Satellite communications will serve as the backbone for this vision. Gen Chilton and Autenried will be joined by Stephen Forbes, Blackjack program manager at DARPA, and Dr. David Voss, Director of the Spectrum Warfare Center of Excellence at the Space Warfighting Analysis Center (SWAC), to discuss this important topic. Blackjack is a joint DARPA/SSC/AFRL program that is helping pioneer next generation space constellations and SWAC is responsible for developing future force design guidance for the Space Force, including for its SATCOM enterprise.
