US Defence Department Recognises the Importance of Data in Martial Settings

In today’s data-centric environment, the US Department of Defence (DoD) recognises the importance of data advantages on the battlefield. Accordingly, the work of departments within the realm of information technology intends to support such efforts.

“When we talk about computing, data and information, this is really about decision advantage. So, our warfighters can stay one step ahead of those who would seek to challenge us on a battlefield, now in places like Syria, or potentially in places like the Western Pacific or Eastern Europe in the future,” stated John Sherman, the DOD’s CIO.

Sherman shared the statement during an announcement of DoD and US Cyber Command awards. The award recognises more than a dozen individuals and teams for their contributions to advancing departmentwide information technology goals. He appreciated the efforts in resolving complex technical problems. The actions of the team and individuals have ensured that the United States military remains secure.

Those being recognised have assisted the department in solving difficult military-technical problems and have been recognised for approaching problems in novel ways. For example, cybersecurity, information enterprise, cloud computing, electromagnetic spectrum superiority, command, control, communications, electronic records management, and Section 508 compliance efforts were among the areas in which those individuals and teams excelled.

Army Gen. Paul M. Nakasone, the Commander of US Cyber Command and the Director of the National Security Agency, said that he was honoured to help the organisation do its job. The awardees represent the department’s top talent as the services strive to become a data-centric organisation constantly at the forefront of innovation.

“As the Department of Defense’s data strategy recognises, data is a strategic asset, similar to a weapon system that can create and maintain battlefield advantage – information that is accurate, timely, and unquestionably actionable. Your efforts to assist warfighters, senior policymakers and intelligence leaders enable my command, the United States Cyber Command, and the National Security Agency to rapidly use data and information to drive operational effects at scale and speed.”

The Defense Department and agencies such as the National Security Agency and the United States Cyber Command work to meet the challenges posed by strategic competitors. Their efforts are focused on supporting the core principles embodied in the National Defense Strategy: integrated deterrence, campaigning and building an enduring advantage.

The United States Department of Defense (DoD) has increased its efforts to obtain commercial cloud capabilities and services directly from commercial Cloud Service Providers (CSPs). According to the United States Department of Defense (DoD), four technology industry titans have been awarded contracts for the Joint Warfighting Cloud Capability (JWCC).

JWCC is a multiple-award contract vehicle that will allow the DoD to obtain at all classification levels, from corporate headquarters to the tactical edge, at the speed of mission. Cloud services can be delivered more quickly and at a lower cost with this Indefinite-Delivery, Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) contract vehicle.

Because of JWCC, warfighters will now have access to the following capabilities under a single contract: global accessibility, readily available and resilient services, centralised management and distributed control, usability, commercial parity, elastic computing, storage, and network equipment, advanced data analytics, fortified assurance, and tactical network nodes are all examples of what is possible.

Visitors to this website can learn more about JWCC, register for the JWCC Customer Portal, or contact the Defence Information Systems Agency (DISA) Hosting and Compute Centre (HaCC). DISA has created user-friendly cloud accelerators to make cloud purchasing, provisioning, and onboarding easier for DoD clients.
