WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–July 25, 2022–
Today, ARC announced an extension to its previous task orders under an Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract awarded last year by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and General Services Administration (GSA). The extension is focused on applications from the “Joint All-Domain Command and Control” (JADC2) project.

While the initial projects validated capability development milestones, the extension allows integration into the combatant’s native environments. Projects to be carried out under this 5-year, $60 million Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase III IDIQ focus on data fusion from miniaturized, AI-enabled advanced computing sensors of ARC with other sources of battlefield data. This integration will allow tactical forces to more easily share intelligence-grade threat information through commonly used consumer media such as mobile devices and heads-up displays. These projects leverage machine learning to create richer data insights actionable by ground forces and support.
The connected battlefield requires reliable and fast data sharing. ARC is developing methods that ensure the warfighter can leverage ARC information both in a disconnected network environment and at 5G speeds, optimizing coordination during critical events.
“Our team is extremely proud to continue supporting the strategic mission of JADC2,” said Michael Canty, CEO of ARC. “This project is particularly exciting given its intent to organically integrate ARC capability into combatant domains to streamline the user experience and help unlock additional value.”
The RCAF has transformed weapons into data sources, fundamentally changing the way we view individual weapons, the impact of which transforms unit training and performance, readiness reporting and logistics.
