Joint Fires Modernization Project

Project Type

Project New


Joint Fires Modernization Project (JFM) will enable tactical, operational and strategic fires and effects information to be shared through a digital network in near real-time. This capability will enable instantaneous sharing of the Common Operating Picture (COP) including targets, friendly locations and C2 information (i.e. boundaries, orders, etc.)


Project requirements will include C2 and targeting software, tactical equipment and simulation capability for dismounted and mounted operations. It will likely replace some or all of the in-service operational and training equipment by acquiring modernized and digitized hardware and software that will provide a digital networked capability for all operating environments. It will replace some or all of the in-service Forward Observation Officer, Forward Air Controller and Joint Fires Observer simulation systems by acquiring realistic and immersive complex battlefield simulators that will be networked to the Land Vehicles Crew Training System common computer generated imagery. The focus will be on providing increased interoperability (with other elements and coalition partners), lethality and robustness.
