C2 Air Operations Suite - C2 Info Services is a part of the Air Force's Research, Development, Test & Evaluation (RDT&E) budget activity. The specific goal of this program is to fund the development of the Command and Control, Incident Management, Emergency Response Application (C2IMERA), which aims to enhance installation command and control capabilities. This includes improving decision speed, quality, and lethality by incorporating direct user feedback, connecting people, automating daily operations, and integrating data from various systems. The program also focuses on providing enhanced installation Command and Control (C2) to support airfield, flight, and emergency operations. Additionally, it aims to provide a theater-level Higher Headquarters (HHQ) module to aggregate critical data theater-wide for real-time awareness.

The objectives of this program include developing advanced battle management system integrations and capabilities, sharing C2IMERA data with Air Base Air Defense Missile Defense (ABADS(MD)), supporting architectural improvements for transition to a scalable microservices codebase, expanding higher headquarters capabilities and data aggregation, and managing program risks associated with software and testing. The program also aims to integrate with the joint Command and Control (C2) framework, transition to multi-tenant capabilities, integrate with Kessel Run's Rebel Alliance data sharing service, and integrate with the Kessel Run All-Domain Operations Suite (KRADOS) applications. The program's funding in FY24 will support the Agile DevOps of enhanced architecture to make C2IMERA more scalable, add integrations, enhance data automation, expand on D-DIL capabilities in support of JADC2/ACE, integrate with ABADS(MD), complete microservices architecture improvements and deprecation of monolith baseline.
