Joint Fires Integration and Interoperability Team

Definition/Scope: A subordinate, functional command of U.S. Joint Forces Command (USJFCOM), tasked with improving the integration, interoperability, and effectiveness of Joint fires. USJFCOM established JFIIT in February 2005 to provide assistance to Joint force commanders and Service headquarters in planning, coordinating, and executing Joint fires at the tactical level. JFIIT’s 120-member team is made up of members from all four Services and Department of Defense (DoD) civilians with contractor support. JFIIT takes a holistic approach to improving Joint fires by providing solutions that produce effective target acquisition, Command and Control (C2), and interoperable firing systems, thereby reducing fratricide and collateral damage. JFIIT’s focus areas include Joint Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (JISR) support to and Joint air-to-ground fires integration with maneuver. C2 and Combat Identification receive attention as inherent elements within these areas.
