Warner to direct command-and-control programs for DISA

Air Force Brig. Gen. David Warner will start work Monday as the director of command-and-control programs for the Defense Information Systems Agency.

Warner, who previously worked in the Air Force secretary's office as the deputy director for operations and support integration, takes over programs such as the Joint Command and Control system, Global Command and Control Systems-Joint, the Global Combat Support System and Multi-National Information Sharing.

The JC2 program, one of DISA's major transformational initiatives, will eventually replace the Global Command and Control Systems as the main joint battlefield C2 system, according to Air Force Lt. Gen. Charles Croom, DISA director. JC2 will use Web services.

Warner graduated from Southwest Texas State University in 1980 with a Bachelor's degree in business administration. He earned a Master's in business administration from Central State University in 1983.

He formerly worked as the director of command, control, communications and computer systems for the Joint Forces Command in Norfolk, Va.
