Sample of our work​ 

In response to Joint Staff J6 tasking in 2020, C3OD2 provided a persistent Combined Joint All Domain Command and Control (CJAC2) Joint Demonstration Environment (JDE) to support experimentation, demonstrations, and assessments. C3OD2 partnered with OSD (R&E) Test Resource Management Center (TRMC) to leverage the Joint Mission Environment Test Capability (JMETC) Secret Network (JSN). The JSN operates on the Secret Defense Research & Engineering Network (SDREN) and can integrate with DoD SIPRNet.  Efforts are underway to integrate JSN with the Joint Training & Experimentation Network (JTEN) and the Combined Federated Battle.
