Enabling JADC2: MPE and the Integration of Mission Partners at the Tactical Level

March 6th, 2023


Learn more about our work with MPE.

In partnership with Federal News Network, GDIT’s Eric Tapp recently sat down with Colonel Carlos Perez Mendez (Individual Mobilization Augmentee to the Space Force S3 and Lead to SecAF Operational Imperative 2, Space Force) and Lieutenant Colonel Dale Verran (Chief of the Unified Action Partner Interoperability Mission Command Center of Excellence, Army) to talk about how partnering among U.S. armed services will require more shared information and the network architectures to support this collaboration. Those capabilities must also extend to allied nations and that is where the concept of the Mission Partner Environment (MPE) comes in.

Tune into the full program to learn more about the current state of MPE development in the armed services, how MPEs enable improved tactical operations among partners, and how it is integrated with Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2).

There are a couple of components that really change the game for the mission partner networking and mission partner sharing – it’s data tagging, it’s the identity management, and it’s the digital access control policy.
