Lt. Gen. James Richardson, deputy commanding general of Army Futures Command (AFC), said a service-led exercise slated to take place in the fourth quarter will focus on assessing new processes and technology platforms for joint interoperability.

He expects more than 6,000 military personnel and industry representatives to join Project Convergence 21 in October and November to demonstrate sensor-to-shooter systems, Army Futures Command said Friday.

"The end result of Project Convergence really is to inform, and that is to inform the Joint warfighting concept; to inform the four functional concepts; to inform how the Army is going to organize, and how the Army is going to fight,” Richardson told an audience at the 24th Annual Space and Missile Defense Symposium.

The campaign's inaugural series of learning experiments tested military tactics for the Department of Defense's Joint All-Domain Command and Control strategy in a push to meet multidomain operation goals by 2028.

Warfighting technology modernization and C4ISR initiatives were the focal points of Aug. 12 discussions at The Potomac Officers Club's 6th Annual Army Forum. Visit the POC website to rewatch the virtual forum and register for the upcoming event, “Building the Future Battle: The Keys to JADC2.”
