The collaboration is a three-year R&D effort to determine the nature of the joint task force of the future and how a future commander might exercise command and control. A USAF officer, Lt. Col. Dewey Parker, is JFCOM’s principal investigator assigned to the effort. What does Lockheed get out of it? They get access to JFCOM warfighting subject matter experts and results from the collaborative work.
