Modernizing the Kill Chain – the SMART Way
CACI’s SMART (sense, make sense, act, and resilient technologies) portfolio combines CACI’s decades of mission expertise and leading technology to enable the success of JADC2. Information dominance can only be achieved through a multi-domain approach, using simultaneous operations that deliver converged capabilities with surprise, range, and speed. The SMART portfolio helps achieve this goal by enabling the collection of data from sensors across organizations and military services, processing it, and making sense of it rapidly using breakthrough technology such as artificial intelligence (AI) to allow faster action than our adversaries. SMART enhances each step of the kill chain in multi-domain operations:
- Sense gathers all sensor inputs from the physical environment, from signals intelligence (SIGINT) to electromagnetic spectrum (EMS) sensor inputs.
- Make Sense leverages built-in information technology and computing resources, AI and machine learning (ML) algorithms, and smart applications to carry out predetermined tasks and rapidly process data.
- Act empowers decision making and taking action to drive converged electronic warfare (EW), SIGINT, and cyber non-kinetic effects to deliver outcomes, using integrated payloads and resilient communications.
- Resilient Technology and data underpin all elements of JADC2, by delivering hardened solutions to where they are needed – enabling the ability to operate, communicate, and fight through a contested environment.
