NOV 2019 – Ace of Base

Agile Combat Employment Design Sprint

5  – 8 NOVEMBER, 2019


Design Problem

AF CyberWorx hosted twenty-one government and industry experts for a design sprint focused on how to achieve key objectives for agile combat employment. Questions included: What needs to be transformed? How do we transform it? How do we integrate new capabilities into the greater ecosystem?

“How might we transform expeditionary communications support to best meet ACE objectives, keeping in mind the greater ecosystem?”


The team developed a three-pillar solution set supported by tailored operator equipment to provide effective mission C3 to provide scalable communications for forward command elements. While the event did not produce a specific design, the team built a solid vision of the way forward to achieve their goals.
