Boeing is integrating the digital battlespace at the speed of now

Today’s emerging threats are coming from existing and rising actors, who are leveraging advances in commercial technology, electronic warfare and cyber capabilities to level the battlefield. We’re helping our defense customers shatter defense acquisition paradigms and forgo the complex, federated solutions of the past to stay ahead of these evolving threats.

The future fight will not be won by a singular new aircraft or weapon, but by brave men and women seamlessly connected to each other and machines like never before. Boeing is digitally developing the open systems that will make Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2) a reality, as well as providing the next-gen capabilities that each of the services needs to fight and win together in the multi-domain battlespace.

From autonomy, artificial intelligence and machine learning to software-defined networking and sensor and data fusion, Boeing ensures that the Joint Force can dominate and win across all domains.

Creating the ABMS Network to Dominate the Decision Cycle

“Our ability to access data regardless of distance, regardless of geographic location, and with lightning speed is the backbone of our capacity to project combat power.” — U.S. Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Charles Q. Brown

Boeing is helping its customers bring the Internet of Military Things to the future fight. The company’s open systems architecture philosophy allows digitally advanced solutions to seamlessly plug in to the Advanced Battle Management System (ABMS) — connecting all sensors and warfighters with real-time actionable data to close the decision chain at the speed of mission success. An open, secure ABMS digital network environment is the backbone of JADC2, ultimately enabling the Joint Force to share this critical data across all the services and with allies to win in every domain.

Enabling Decision Dominance for the Army and Joint Force

“In the face of determined adversaries and accelerating technological advances, we must transform today to meet tomorrow’s challenges. Future conflicts will manifest at longer range, across all domains, and at much greater speed, both physical and cognitive.

This bold transformation will provide the Joint Force with the range, speed, and convergence of cutting edge technologies that will be needed to provide future decision dominance and overmatch required to win the next fight.”  — U.S. Army Chief of Staff Gen. James C. McConville

From Future Vertical Lift to Long Range Precision Fires; to Integrated Air and Missile Defense; to advanced waveforms, assured Positioning, Navigation and Timing, and multi-mission, multi-function sensors; Boeing is accelerating, scaling, and integrating innovative capabilities for the Joint Force – and it starts with building those systems better.

Learn how Boeing is using the latest technologies to support the Army’s modernization priorities.

Creating Overmatch Capabilities for the Integrated, All-Domain Navy

“The goal is to enable a Navy that swarms the sea, delivering synchronized lethal and nonlethal effects from near and far, every axis, and every domain. Specifically, we will develop the networks, infrastructure, data architecture, tools, and analytics that support the operational and developmental environment that will enable our sustained maritime dominance.” — Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Mike Gilday

The freedom of the seas and balance of power are being contested in waters around the globe. Propelled by advances in modern technology, rivaling forces are rapidly modernizing their fleets and growing their naval capabilities. To counter these threats and stem the tide of aggression, Boeing is committed to providing overmatch capabilities for the integrated, all-domain Navy of today and tomorrow, enabling Distributed Maritime Operations and ensuring the advantage at sea.

From both topside and below deck, to the carrier deck and beyond, Boeing has a long, proven history of providing and integrating solutions to support carrier air wing capabilities, maritime navigation, shipboard communications and network systems, ISR, and Anti-Submarine Warfare.
