"Effective air, space and cyberspace operations depend on integrated effects across the joint force. The key is command and control, and the modernized AOC provides warfighters with the secure, flexible and agile C2 capabilities necessary for meeting the security challenges of the future," Twyman said.
In conjunction with the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, Hanscom Air Force Base, Mass., Northrop Grumman will modernize the AOC by developing a secure, streamlined computing environment for legacy and stove-piped systems. The common computing environment will reduce manual information sharing between systems and decrease information technology footprint thereby lowering total ownership costs. AOC modernization will also accelerate the integration of new applications and enable flexibility to deliver modular, mission-tailorable capabilities to warfighters.
The AOC gives the Air Force an enhanced operational-level command and control capability for use in every operational theater. It provides the Joint Force Air Component commander with the core capability to plan, task and execute theaterwide operations in the air, space and cyber domains.
