About this event


The Army’s Network Cross-Functional Team (N-CFT), in collaboration with the Program Executive Office for Command, Control and Communications-Tactical (PEO C3T), will host a network-related technical exchange meeting (TEM) on June 2, 2021, to discuss Capability Set 25 development efforts. Capability Set 25 will build upon Capability Set 21 and 23 and focus on automation and network protection. Capability Set 25 will also incorporate lessons learned from Project Convergence, and have a greater focus of enabling Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2) with data management and integration of commercial network transport capability. As the Army executes our Regionally Aligned Readiness and Modernization Model (ReAARM) strategy, Unified Network capability will enable Multi-Domain Operations at brigade, division and corps echelons, while also supporting new Army elements such as the Multi-Domain Task Force (MDTF) and Cyber/Electronic Warfare (EW) formations.

This event is meant for a technical audience to include, systems engineers, architecture experts, data analytical experts and integrators. Each session will offer an opportunity for an in-depth discussion between audience members, Army network technical experts, and user community representatives. This will enable vendors, in an open session, to ask questions for clarification, operational understanding, and technical understanding. Each topical session will have a moderated panel and will field questions from attendees regarding that topic.

Registration is required for this event. All persons who wish to attend this forum must register no later than 5:00p.m. (EST) May 25, 2021. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, participants may choose whether to participate in person (paid registration, limited capacity) or virtually (no cost, unlimited capacity).

Virtual attendees will be provided a MS Teams Live link, via email, two days prior to the event start. Virtual attendees will be allowed to ask questions through a moderated Q&A chat feature within MS Teams Live.

NOTE: This registration page is for VIRTUAL attendance ONLY. If you wish to attend IN PERSON (120 MAX), please register at the link below:

The Network Cross-Functional Team and the U.S. Army Program Executive Office for Command, Control and Communications-Tactical, with Army partners, host regularly scheduled technical exchange meetings and industry forums as a means of exploring the art of the possible to meet Army network needs. The intent of the session is to enhance Government and industry communication, and to enable industry to respond quicker to critical emerging requirements with innovative technology solutions and partnerships. Questions are permitted during the meeting; however, questions in regards to any portfolio system in current source selection will not be allowed. Informational slides will be posted to SAM prior to the technical forum.


PEO C3T and the N-CFT will leverage the Joint Communications Marketplace (JCM) for vendors to submit white papers, following the same process as we did for TEM 5 in September of 2020.

The following information will be available within the JCM TEM Community on 30 April 2021:

1. Information on identified topics

2. DRAFT Call for white paper documents

3. Groups on identified topics for posting questions/comments against the supplied DRAFT call for white papers.

The Government plans to issue request(s) for white papers against BAA-21-R-NCFT following the TEM event. The Government does not intend to evaluate unsolicited white papers at this time.
