C5ISR is an acronym used often by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) and the Intelligence Community to describe Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Cyber, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR). An important attribute of C5ISR, is the seamless integration of these domain areas to create synergistic effects for the Operational Community (OC) and the Joint Force.
Gray Analytics has many previous federally funded research and development center (FFRDC), civilian, and contractor staff that have been on the front lines of delivering major C4ISR, C5ISR, and C6ISR capabilities, but we are also fortunate, in that we also possess two former Army Warrant Officers who are school trained and operationally qualified Joint Interface Control Officers (JICO) and one former Army Observer Coach/Training (OC/T) from the Combine Joint Training Center.
In aggregate across the Gray Analytics organization, we have more than 200 year of total operational knowledge and experience developing, delivering, and maintaining some of the DoD’s most advanced and mission capable C5ISR systems.
How Gray Analytics Can Help
We offer a vast amount of operational expertise from within the DoD that directly relates to the C5ISR operations domain, especially within the Command and Control (C2) space. Our staff have specific expertise in the areas of cybersecurity (both offense and defense) community, Air and Missile Defense (both at the tactical and strategic levels), Link-16 operations, intelligence, information warfare, and space capability integration and help to converge these important domain areas to create effects for peer-threats.
Within the ever-evolving battlefield/domain and the new emerging threats of the twenty-first century, we offer the training support and expertise to empower and enable the warfighter and the joint warfighter community as a whole. These services range from operator level exercise support, unit certification, network (Link-16 and voice communications) development and implementation, and culminating with the support and execution of Joint COCOM level exercises, flight, and operational testing.
Our areas of emphasis include:
- Systems Engineering of advanced C5ISR capabilities
- Sensor / Shooter (kinetic) integration and ICD development
- Line of sight (LOS), beyond line of sight (BLOS), space, and terrestrial communication and architectures
- Operation Plan(s) (OPLANs) analysis
- Operational Task Link (OPTASKLINK) analysis
- Combatant Command (COCOM) operation/exercise support
- Unit or fleet level certifications
- Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) systems development (ground/flight test support)
- Communication architecture development (operations and exercise)
- Link-16 (Datalink management) Operations
- Information Exchange Requirements (IERs) planning
- System Architecture Development and Implementation support (regional and strategic)
- Architecture resiliency and protection
- ISR Integration of Overhead Sensors/Capabilities
- Cyber defense engineering for tactical networks
- Strategic effects (integrating non-kinetic and kinetic) capabilities
