TECHNICAL ENGINEERING SUPPORT FOR INTEGRATION AND PRODUCTION OF DJC2
The DJC2 program is a Secretary of Defense and Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff, priority transformation initiative that is providing a standardized, rapidly deployable, scalable, and reconfigurable Joint Command and Control (C2) and collaboration Combat Operations Center (COC) system to Geographic Combatant Commanders (GCCs) and component commands. The Joint Force Commander can use DJC2 to execute operations ranging from a first responder or small early entry forward component up to and including full Joint Task Force (JTF) Combat Operation Center (COC) operations. The DJC2 system provides a unique capability required by the Joint Warfighter that did not exist prior to its development.
The DJC2 system has four configurations: Rapid Response Kit (5/15 seat), En Route (10/20 seats), Early Entry (20 seats) and Core (60 seats). A fully fielded DJC2 system can be set up in less than 24 hours and includes: self-generated power; environmental control; shelters; infrastructure; trailers; limited communications equipment; Government-off-the-shelf (GOTS) C2 and commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) office automation and collaboration software applications with operator workstations (laptop computers, chairs, tables); displays; intercommunications; local area networks; and access to wide area networks. The DJC2 system is Net Centric from inception, has an open architecture, and is fully certified (including transportability and interoperability).
DJC2 IS PRODUCED BY THE NAVAL SURFACE WARFARE CENTER PANAMA CITY DIVISION
The Deployable Joint Command and Control system, commonly known as DJC2, is an integrated command and control headquarters system which enables a commander to set up a self-contained, self-powered, computer network-enabled temporary headquarters facility anywhere in the world within 6 – 24 hours of arrival at a location.
DJC2 is produced and fielded by the U.S. military to support Joint warfare. The DJC2 Joint Program Office developed the system, and it is integrated and produced by a U.S. Government integrator, the Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division.
THE BASE DJC2 SYSTEM CONSISTS OF A LINKED GROUP OF SELF-POWERED AND CLIMATE-CONTROLLED TENTS
These climate-controlled tents house computer network servers, computer workstations with furniture, satellite communications equipment, voice and data encryption equipment, a video teleconferencing system, video display screens, printers, fax machines, etc. Utilizing a fielded DJC2 system, the commander and his staff can securely communicate across the world, send and receive information across five different computer networks (including secure networks and the Internet), participate in video teleconferences with remote locations, and use a fully integrated command and control/collaboration software tool suite to plan and execute missions.
In addition to the base system, DJC2 includes some additional specialized configurations designed to support a commander’s need for command and control capabilities in specialized circumstances. These configurations include: a “suitcase” communications suite which can be hand-carried and used on short notice by a first responder/small control team; and a small, air-certified headquarters suite which can operate aboard a military aircraft while in flight. The DJC2 system also includes an experimental concept demonstration suite with DJC2 workstations installed in shipboard containers for operation aboard a ship while underway.
Currently, the Department of Defense has produced and fielded six fully deployable DJC2 systems to commands in the United States and Europe
A DJC2 system was used in a Joint Task Force effort supporting the relief efforts in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, Louisiana, as well as more recently in the Joint Task Force providing humanitarian assistance and disaster relief to Cyclone Nargis victims in Myanmar (Burma).
