JFCOM seeks industry aid

The command that oversees the integration of U.S. and coalition forces wants help from industry on data sharing and joint training.

Joint Forces Command officials will talk to government, industry and academic officials Aug. 12 at the Chesapeake Conference Center in Norfolk, Va., about the problems of implementing the military's new network-centric data strategy. The command wants help on data sets, sharing, transfer and metadata tagging, according to a July 15 command statement.

More information is available from Joint Forces Command's Public Affairs Office at (757) 836-6555. Inquiries can also be sent using an online form at www.jwfc.jfcom.mil/webapps/forms/USJFCOM/feedback.jsp.

Companies must submit ideas by Aug. 9 to:

Department of the Navy

Naval Supply Systems Command

FISC Norfolk Detachment Philadelphia

700 Robbins Ave.

Building 2B

Philadelphia, PA 19111-5083

Officials can review the announcement at www1.eps.gov/spg/DON/NAVSUP/FISCDETPHILA/H2004/SynopsisP.html.

Last month, the command issued a request for ideas so warfighters can better use current and new technologies in their training. Command officials want to identify and use commercial desktop software for computer modeling and simulation and live training, according to a June 29 command statement.
