Joint-All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2) is the Department of Defense’s (DoD’s) concept to connect sensors from all of the military services—Air Force, Army, Marine Corps, Navy, and Space Force—into a single network. The objective is to create a singular command and control (C2) network capable of linking all U.S. military sensors and fires, across domains, in any conflict region.
The DoD aims to accomplish joint all-domain operations with ubiquitous data and Artificial Intelligence (AI)-assisted data transport and decision-making, among many converged capabilities. This would require the development and adoption of standards for capturing, defining, and transmitting.
However, for JADC2 to achieve its objectives a logical framework that can express space-time as the foundation for semantic integration across all the information systems in a fully connected JADC2 environment is required. Furthermore, a logical, interoperable semantic framework would help to integrate command and control by facilitating the reasoning and analysis about one type of object moving in one domain to be applied across domains.
At the heart of this proposed framework would be a logically sound, universal spatiotemporal ontology. A spatiotemporal ontology and machine-readable reasoning framework, if taken up by the DoD service components, would apply to the objects moving through space-time in all domains. In addition, it would enable semantic integration and reasoning of data from all networks.
