J-6 Command, Control, Communications, and Computers


To be the most efficient and customer focused organization in the California Military Department.

Core Competencies

The Customer

Our customers are why we are here. We strive to provide timely service and support; providing results when the customer needs it and education when the customer wants it.

Basics of Service

We listen and work to understand our customer’s challenge in order to provide the best solutions leveraging the latest technologies at our disposal.

Knowing Our Business

We maintain the ‘one team, one fight’ mentality, and our experts are focused on developing their facet of the IT field to further our directorate’s capabilities in customer support.


Technology is changing the way we train, educate and operate in the California National Guard. Distributed Learning (DL) is an important part of this change. Distributed Learning is simply another method of training. Experience shows that DL can be more effective for some training. Although DL will not replace all resident training, the Army is conducting more training using DL. In some cases, DL can provide an alternative to traditional resident training; in other cases, it can augment resident training, and in some cases, it can replace resident training. Higher levels of readiness will be achieved, and sustained, by trainers who assist leaders to use the most effective training methods – including DL.



On order, mobilize, deploy, and provide Incident Commander’s Command, Control, and Communications Unit (IC4U), radio communications to all supported units. Coordinate and provide subject matter experts for infrastructure support and training to units with IC4U and JISCC capabilities. The State Military Department J6 Emergency Communications and IC4U program is a first responder style organization that owns physical deployable assets designed to provide real-time information reach back capabilities. We have seven trucks located throughout the state and a full time staff that service each entity. In the event of a state emergency or disaster that is large enough to involve CA Office of Emergency Services, we can be called on to provide computers, phones, scanner, E-Mail, and WIFI availability to a range of customers where no infrastructure is available. We are also subject matter experts on many tactical systems to include: PSC5, PRC-117, PRC-152, SINCGARS, and HF SYSTEMS. Our department is well versed in these systems as a training asset to line units.
