    • JDAT Support to the Black Dart C-UAS Demonstration

      Current U.S. integrated air and missile defense capabilities are not keeping pace with the rapidly evolving unmanned aerial systems threat and require both materiel and non-materiel solutions to mitigate warfighter capability gaps. BLACK DART is an annual field demonstration of current and emergent Counter-UAS technologies sponsored by the Joint Staff J8 Joint Integrated Air and Missile Defense Organization also known as JIAMDO. As the Black Dart 2016 lead assessment organization, the Joint Staff J6 Joint Deployable Analysis Team, also known as JDAT, collected data to answer two main questions: 1- Can current fielded systems counter UAS threats? 2- And, what is the capability or potential of non-Program of Record systems to enhance counter UAS operations? The live-fly, live-fire demonstration took place in late 2016 at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida and the surrounding land and sea ranges with over 900 personnel in attendance including participants from Australia, Canada, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan. BLACK DART demonstrations began in 2010 and are the only Joint and partner nation Department of Defense counter UAS events. The JDAT Black Dart Report will include detailed findings on systems’ abilities to detect, track, identify, and negate unmanned aircraft systems to support Joint and Combined warfighter capabilities and make our forces more connected, survivable, and lethal on the battlefield. a. Execute live-fly, live-fire C-UAS technology demonstrations to assess and validate existing and emerging IAMD capabilities. b. Present emerging solutions to inform requirements decision making. c. Identify and develop IAMD operational concepts, system interoperability, and operational architectures for the C-UAS mission set. d. Advocate for warfighters’ desired C-UAS capabilities and affordable, integrated solutions. e. Identify C-UAS capability gaps for IAMD. f. Identify promising materiel and non-materiel solutions for C-UAS operations. g. Investigate new methods for UAS Combat Identification (CID). h. Improve completeness of the shared air picture with respect to Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UASs). i. Develop C-UAS non-kinetic negation methods and techniques. j. Promote and integrate interagency participation and capabilities. k. Promote foreign/partner nation observer participation and coordination. The demonstration will include Program of Record (POR) as well as non-POR C-UASs demonstrating capabilities and/or collecting data in support of proprietary C-UAS development. Onsite data collection supports real-time feedback, opportunities for participant feedback, and becomes the basis for formal analysis at the conclusion of the demonstration. In order to align with warfighter needs, JIAMDO coordinated with the Combatant Commands and Services to prioritize capability gaps related to C-UAS.

    • JDAT Support to the U.S. Army's Maneuver Battle Lab Squad X Event

      Squad X is a multiyear Department of Defense program sponsored by DARPA to identify emerging technologies and facilitate their development for military use. The Joint Deployable Analysis Team, also known as JDAT, recently supported the United States Army Training and Doctrine Command’s Maneuver Battle Lab by enhancing their assessment process for testing Squad capabilities. The Maneuver Battle Lab is responsible for infantry capabilities development under TRADOC’s Maneuver Center of Excellence, the project lead for this DARPA-sponsored initiative. Over the course of several events held at Fort Benning, Georgia, JDAT collected digital and voice data passed between systems from the infantry Company through subordinate SQD levels and assisted in the analysis effort. The assessment will provide observations, findings, conclusions, and recommendations to the U.S. Army and the DOD regarding new technology initiatives and their contribution to improve dismounted infantry SQD mission performance. This year’s program will establish a baseline capability to compare against future experimental technologies employed by dismounted infantry SQDs.

    • JDAT Operational Video: Helping Warfighters Solve Capability Gaps & Shortfalls

      This Joint and Coalition-based operational video is designed to more effectively communicate how JDAT can help solve crucial warfighter, system, and interoperability shortfalls in support of Combatant Commands, Centers of Excellence, DOT&E, select-DOD schoolhouses, and other key partners. This short video can be used to familiarize U.S. and Coalition military leaders about JDAT's unique capabilities, resources, and products that when fully leveraged can enhance interoperability, command and control operations, and overall mission effectiveness in today's challenging and ever-evolving operational environment. JDAT is a division under the Joint Staff J6 and collaborates and/or supports numerous military organizations and partners including: - Combatant Commands - Centers of Excellence - Service OTAs, USD AT&L, DOT&E - Select Service and Coalition Program Offices - A variety of DOD Schoolhouses - Service Centers for Lessons Learned - Joint and Coalition Warfighters! Bottom line: JDAT develops warfighter-focused analysis plans, and conducts data collection and root cause analysis to help solve capability gaps and shortfalls that will ultimately enhance mission effectiveness while reducing the potential of fratricide and collateral damage.

    • NEXRAD Doppler Weather Radar

      Lead: Just 3 Airmen from Andersen’s 36th Communications Squadron work diligently to ensure the only weather radar in the entire Marianas Islands provides vital information to Andersen base weather, Guam International Airport, and even Hickam Air Force Base, Hawaii. SrA Whitlow explains what the radar is, how it works, and how important it is to the Andersen mission. Narration: Tucked behind the backroads of Guam, just south of Andersen Air Force Base stands a lone, tall radar tower. Operated by just 3 Airmen from the 36th Communications Squadron, it’s what they call the NEXRAD Doppler Radar. SSgt David Vanderloop, Ground Radar Technician, 36th Communications Squadron (36 CS): “The NEXRAD radar is a Next Generation weather Radar used here on Andersen. It provides products to Andersen base weather, FAA, the National Weather Service, and also Hickam gets a feed of from radar site.” Narration: The NEXRAD Doppler Radar system is a network of high-resolution weather radars operated by the National Weather Service. The NEXRAD detects precipitation, atmospheric movement, or wind by shooting radio frequencies out into the air. SSgt Vanderloop: “How the NEXRAD radar works is, we generate pulsed RF which shoots out of the antenna, which will then bounce off of a cloud, and then receive back into the same antenna it transmitted from, we will then process then send out to all of our users.” Narration: Although satellites work for a similar purpose, the NEXRAD radar provides a more in-depth look into the atmosphere. SSgt Benjamin Touchstone, Ground Radar Systems NCOIC, 36th Communications Squadron (36 CS): “Satellites coverage will give you a more aerial view of the cloud coverage in the area. The difference between it and the radar is the radar gives you a more detailed internal look of the cloud. So you can see what’s actually going on inside of it.” Narration: Without that radar coverage, weather forecasting is much more limited, which in turn directly affects Andersen’s high operational flying missions. SSgt Touchstone: “It’s important to have it up with all the air traffic we have coming in and out of Guam International Airport plus all of the training missions and exercises we run here from Andersen. Especially in certain circumstances where you’re flying stealth missions and things like that, some of those airplanes won’t actually fly without radar coverage up. These products are absolutely vital to all of Andersen’s flying missions” Narration: The NEXRAD is the only weather radar within the Marianas region. It serves the Andersen mission while also providing the Pacific region a detailed look into Guam’s skies. Soundbites from Staff Sgt. David Vanderloop, Staff Sgt. Benjamin Touchstone.
