The 805th Combat Training Squadron, also known as the Shadow Operations Center – Nellis, Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada, participated in the U.S. Army’s Project Convergence 2022 to experiment with speed, range, and decision dominance to achieve overmatch and inform the Joint Warfighting Concept and Joint All Domain Command and Control concept. The Army led its first large-scale Project Convergence experiment in 2020 and has continued to grow the event’s scope, scale and complexity annually.
Project Convergence is an annual joint, and coalition field training experiment focused on leveraging a series of joint, multi-domain engagements to integrate artificial intelligence, robotics, and autonomy to improve battlefield situational awareness, connect sensors with shooters, and accelerate the decision-making timeline.
The multi-week air, land, sea, space, and cyberspace experiment enables real-world proficiency in training the joint force through detecting, locating, tracking, and engaging adversary targets. Project Convergence also blended real-world forces and technology of today with the advanced next-generation systems and simulated capabilities of tomorrow.
