Lt. Gen. William Lord is building a communications framework for network-centric operations that will help the Defense Department in its ongoing quest for interoperability.

Besides designing a federated Air Force enterprise architecture that was the first to be certified by the Defense Department’s Architecture and Standards Review Group, Lord is leading the development of a comprehensive aerial layer network that will support joint, real-time communications on the battlefield.

He is pushing the development of departmentwide IT standards that will establish the price of admission for joint warfighting and industry partnerships in cyberspace.

“He has fought through and delivered this construct to ensure DOD investments are interoperable and fit together,” said Robert Carey, deputy CIO at DOD.
