BETHESDA, Md. To support enabling Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2), Lockheed Martin is working for the U.S. Air Force Life Cycle Management Center to integrate critical battle management capabilities from the Theater Battle Management Core System (TBMCS) into the Air Force’s Kessel Run All Domain Operations Suite (KRADOS).

As the original Equipment Manufacturer of TBMCS, Lockheed Martin claims it is enhancing key software components and incorporating them into Kessel Run’s suite of applications through collaboration with Kessel Run development teams. This effort is intended to provide worldwide combatant commands a complete suite of next-generation tools to plan, execute, and assess joint theater air operations.

In partnership with the Air Force, Lockheed Martin claims it is migrating these TBMCS capabilities to Kessel Run’s cloud platform via a cloud-based software delivery environment, Wolfpack. Wolfpack involves containerization of applications that serve as the application gateway between Kessel Run applications and operational TBMCS variants operating in the field today.

Through Wolfpack, KRADOS is intended to exchange data to operational TBMCS interfaces managed by the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps. Through the Wolfpack application gateway, KRADOS will aim to process key data produced by the TBMCS instances used by warfighters directing and executing the joint air campaign.
