The North American Aerospace Defense Command and U.S. Northern Command in partnership with all 11 combatant commands, led the third in a series of Global Information Dominance Experiments designed to rapidly develop the capabilities required to increase deterrence options in competition and crisis through a data-centric, software-based approach. GIDE events combine people and technology to innovate and accelerate system development for domain awareness, information dominance, decisional superiority and global integration. The GIDE 3 experiment was executed in conjunction with the Department of the Air Force's Chief Architect Office as part of their fifth Architecture Demonstration and Evaluation event (ADE 5), and the Joint Artificial Intelligence Center.
