Leadership in Enterprise Architecture Driven Results – Government Project Defense Award for En-Route Mission Command Capability (EMCC) Tactical Enterprise Architecture

Team Cervello was a member of the EnRoute Mission Command Capability (EMCC) Tactical Enterprise Architecture team recognized for their contribution and for winning the Leadership in Enterprise Architecture Driven Results – Government Project Defense award for 2014.

This was announced and presented at the Federal Enterprise Award Conference award ceremony, April 2014, in Washington, D.C.

The primary goal of the EMCC Tactical Enterprise Architecture was to enable extremely urgent requirements for improved en-route communications capability to conduct planning and situational awareness while enroute to an operational area under the Joint Operational Access Concept (JOAC).

This enabled the employment of Government-off-the-shelf (GOTS)/Commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) materiel via associated tactics, techniques and procedures (TTP) utilized by the 75th Ranger Regiment to be incorporated by the XVIII Airborne Corps and 82nd Airborne Division.

Results include bandwidth increase inside the aircraft increasing from 256K to 5 MB (an approximate 1900% improvement!).

This DODAF architecture-based project demonstrated enhanced situational awareness and validated TTP tailored to XVIII Airborne Corps missions through test results to support warfighter acquisition decisions and doctrine, organization, training, materiel, leadership and education, personnel and facilities (DOTMLPF) Change Requests (DCRs).

C4ISR and Networks Elite 6 Award

The C4ISR and Networks Elite 6 Award, by C4ISRNET magazine, was presented to Joint Staff J6, Joint Tactical Integration Branch (JTIB), for their efforts in Command and Control (C2) /Communications.

As a member of the JTIB, Team Cervello provided support for C2/Communications in the way of development, testing, and evaluation of tactics, techniques and procedures (TTP) for en-route communications capability tailored to Airborne Corps Global Response Force missions.

This included installation and operation guides for the 82nd Airborne Division and 75th Ranger Regiment, 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit, and operational system architectures.

The TTPs addressed the new and proven technology that provides: chat and voice; intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance; full motion video; imagery products; common operating picture; video teleconference; email; and portal services for use by the Global Response Force team while en-route. The Program Executive Office Command, Control, and Communications Tactical Program Manager for the Warfighter Information Network – Tactical incorporated this into their En-route Mission Command Capability program.
