Title: WJTSC Master Issue Deck

WJTSC Master Issue Deck
Pre WJTSC 09-2 CoC VTC as of 24 July 09
  • To streamline review, discussion, and resolution
    of issues, all open issues have been binned to
    one of five categories
  • 1. Exercise issues
  • 2. Joint Training Requirements issues
  • 3. Joint Individual and Staff Training issues
  • 4. Joint Training Assessment and Readiness
  • 5. Interagency issues
  • While not all issues are a perfect fit, issues
    were placed in the bin that represented the best
    fit as of the close of the previous WJTSC.
    Issues may be re-binned by the Council of
    Colonels as appropriate.

DOD Participation Challenges in the National
Exercise Program

Briefer Col Fennell
  • Issue 08-003 DOD Participation Challenges in the
    National Exercise Program (NEP)
  • Discussion
  • New administration transition - Homeland Security
    Council (HSC)/National Security Council (NSC)
    structure has changed somewhat, but and the role
    of the HSC Exercise/Evaluation Sub-Integrated
    Policy Committee (IPC) has not changed.
  • b. 5-Year scheduling challenges in the NEP No
    fidelity in future years for Tier I, II, or III
    exercises info on state(s) and dates prohibits
    future planning for required funding, resources
    and forces. (National Level Exercise and
    planning dates through 2010 and some for 2011
    have been established).
  • Endstate Improved joint training effectiveness
    and efficiency as directed by Chairmans Joint
    Training Guidance. Supported / supporting roles
    consistent with Plans / Unified Command Plan.
    Staffs build relationships, conduct realistic
    rehearsal with actual counterparts.
  • POAM
  • Use Worldwide Joint Training and Scheduling
    Conference, deconfliction and combatant command
    annual exercise conferences to link multiple
    exercises, taking advantage of NEP to link
    exercises / integrate mission areas to ensure
    regional / mission area coverage.
  • Formal process for DOD submissions to NEP has
    been briefed but not captured in a Chairmans
    Joint Chiefs of Staff Instruction. Still need
    more fidelity on future years exercises regarding
  • Support DHS / FEMA / National Exercise Division
    efforts and use of the National Exercise
    Simulation Center (NESC) (located at FEMA HQ) to
    provide national level interagency exercise
    support and exercise control capabilities.

Use of the Joint Live Virtual Constructive
Briefer Mr Goad
Issue 07-014 The Joint Live Virtual Constructive
(JLVC) Federation provides the most realistic
environment to align joint training with
combatant commander assigned missions,
requirements and constraints. The JLVC federation
is comprised of both Joint and Service
simulations and tools. Discussion Current
funding provides Joint Theater Level Simulation
(JTLS) as the standard suite to support the
Combatant Command Joint Exercise Program (JEP),
however, JTLS lacks the capability to model high
fidelity strategic to tactical operations. This
training shortfall was noted in the Joint Staffs
Training Capabilities Analysis of Alternatives
Gaps 1-22. JLVC addresses these gaps. Using the
JLVC federation is an option contingent upon
additional Combatant Commander funding for event
integration (CE2) as well as additional USJFCOM
Training Transformation (T2) funding for JLVC
development. Recent cuts to T2 RDTE need to be
addressed to provide sustained integration and
development funding streams. Endstate Tailored
/ packaged use of JLVC in combatant command
exercises to meet specific training objectives.
Single standardized JLVC federation with low
overhead competitive capability. POAM
Combatant Commands provide details on which
exercise(s) are most enhanced with the use of
JLVC. CE2 SLT allocates funding for JWFC support
(including JLVC) in accordance with CE2 business
rules / processes. CE2 addresses only JLVC
integration/support for combatant command events
but not development of JLVC technical
enhancements in demand by combatant command
stakeholders. USJFCOM efforts to reduce JLVC
costs by developing low overhead JCATS
capability. OPRs USJFCOM, JS J-7 OCRs

Missile Warning / Defense Systems Training

Briefer Mr McVay
Issue 07-017 Combatant Commanders require a
distributed, integrated, synthetic Missile
Warning (MW) and Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD)
training and exercise modeling and simulation
(MS) capability. Discussion a. Current
capability requires duplicative, static, scenario
development and does not provide synergistic
training capability. b. There is a requirement
for a federated joint missile simulation
capability which will stimulate all applicable
operational missile awareness systems
simultaneously to meet all stakeholders missile
warning and integrated air and missile defense
(IAMD) simulation requirements. Endstate A
federated Joint IAMD simulation capability which
will stimulate all operational awareness systems
to meet all missile warning and integrated air
and missile defense simulation requirements. POAM
Short Term Develop a federated IAMD
simulation capability that will stimulate
operational missile awareness systems for the
entire missile mission set to include missile
warning, missile defense, and IAMD. Pursue an
interim solution for a dynamic missile warning
MS capability and have integrated capability in
place in the next 9 months for training tiers 1

Experimentation, Demonstration, Testing (EDT)
in Joint Training
Briefer Mr. Rosengrant
Issue 04-003 Lack of common DOD-wide process for
incorporation of EDT into joint training.
Discussion EDT requirements call for access to
joint environments. It is not always clear what
training event or venue is best suited for a
specific EDT event, either in content or
schedule. Short-notice insertions into training
events are disruptive to exercise planning. OSD
is seeking to more effectively enable EDT
scheduling activity within joint context and
reduce possible impact to training audience and
providers. For example, Joint Test and
Evaluations (JTEs) require a joint environments
for their demonstrations. Joint context and
resource limitations require test and prototyping
activity in training. USJFCOM has developed a
clearing house function for venue identification,
scheduling, and coordination (Joint
Experimentation, Test and ACTDs) under the
direction of the T2 I-Plan. This direction will
be continued under DoDI 1322.xx Implementing DoD
Training as it cancels the T2 I-Plan. Endstate
Common policy and supporting responsibilities for
incorporating EDT activity in training are
included in DoDI. POAM OSD(PR) developing a
DoDI to transition policy from the T2 I-Plan to
broader DoD-wide application and continue
USJFCOM's JETA role. Final coordination will
occur through the formal processing of the

National Transition Training Plan
Briefer Col Fennell
Issue 08- 011 The National Exercise Program
(NEP) establishes a Transition Training Program
which implements key elements in the Federal
Interagency Heightened Alert Concept Plan
associated with a Period of Heightened Alert
(POHA) Discussion The Transition Training
Program is a quadrennial Presidential election
year cycle of NEP events designed to introduce
new and transitioning Principals of departments
and agencies and other key officials to existing
policies, plans, and capabilities, as well as
identifying potential shortfalls, based on
strategic estimates of threat and risk. It is a
series of briefings, seminars and exercises for
transitioning senior officials on USG policies,
plans and capabilities for incident management
and crisis coordination. Endstate The
culmination of the NEP Transition Training
Program was NEP Tier I Exercise 27-31 July 09
which served as an immersive experience for the
senior officials. This was National Level
Exercise 2009 (NLE 09). The central focus of the
exercise was prevention, but combatant commands
provided significant input to SECDEF, CJCS with
respect to Homeland Defense and a transnational
terrorist threat. The July Command Post Exercise
was preceded by a Principal Level Exercise (PLE)
in mid-Jun 09. N-NC also provided training
support to other departments via Defense Support
to Civil Authorities courses and table-top
exercises during March-August 2009. POAM As

Deconfliction of Combatant Command Exercises

Briefer Lt Col Livergood
Issue 08-014 Scheduling resources to support
combatant command events is challenging given
daily operations tempo, personnel, fiscal, and
time constraints and multiple events executing
during the same period. Need overall
deconfliction resolution process for Combatant
Command Exercises. Discussion Limited Service
resources (forces, equipment, exercise support)
preclude the ability to support competing
combatant command exercises. Without a force
management process, Services will be forced to
prioritize / reduce support for competing
combatant command exercises. Current exercise
schedules have major combatant command exercises
back-to-back or overlapping, limiting the
Services ability to support. In the future,
exercises must be more evenly distributed across
the fiscal year, or Service support must be
scaled back or possibly cancelled. Endstate
Robust resolution process involving all
stakeholders to effectively deconflict resources
supporting combatant command exercises.
Deliverable product from the conference is a
deconflicted and validated exercise schedule.
Unresolved issues are highlighted for Stakeholder
Leadership Team consideration and combatant
command leadership awareness. POAM JS J-7 lead
a USJFCOM hosted conference to focus on future
year planning 2-5 years out, deconflicting three
areas USJFCOM Distributed Training Team support
to combatant commands, USTRANSCOM support to
combatant commands, and validating supportability
of exercise schedules by forces, lift assets, and
budgets. Combatant commands, Services, and
components identify shortfalls and present
courses of action to minimize risk to the
exercise community. OPRs JS J-7 OCRs USJFCOM,

Integration of ABCA Partners into the Joint
Training Enterprise

Briefer Col Walrond
ABCA American, British, Canadian, Australian
  • Issue 08-018 The enhancement of ABCA Joint,
    Combined, Multilateral training in order to
    increase operational capability, preparedness,
    and improve interoperability.
  • Discussion  No formal procedure exists for
    scheduling and coordinating ABCA Joint Combined
    and Multilateral training and use of the full
    range of Live Virtual Constructive (LVC) training
    capabilities. An ABCA working group (WG),
    including Combatant Commands and JS J7, needs to
    be established to draft agreement(s), develop
    business rules, and identify/develop the
    appropriate forum for coordination. Recommend
    the WG adopt the PACOM-AUS Joint Combined
    Training Capability (JCTC) work as a starting
    point. Formal business rules will require a long
    term effort, but short term efforts will continue
    to leverage existing multilateral venues.
  • Endstate Defense level policy guidance, and
    agreements. A formal coordination process,
    business rules and/or other documents as
    necessary for ABCA partners and combatant
    commands/Services that outlines the process for
    scheduling and coordinating bi-lateral and
    multilateral training and exercises enhanced via
    LVC enablers using ABCA networks. Short term
    endstate will address OIF/OEF pre-deployment
    training. Long term solution expected to take
    several years.

Continued Implementation of JTSS Program for the
Combat Support Agencies

Briefer Mr Cook
Issue 08-019 Continued implementation of JTSS
Program for the Combat Support Agencies
Discussion The Joint Training System Specialist
(JTSS) program is vital to Combat Support Agency
(CSA) implementation and sustainment of the Joint
Training System (JTS) in support of the combatant
commands. Agencies with a JTSS have achieved
greater success in accomplishing JTS
requirements i.e. Agency Mission Essential Task
List, Agency Training Plan, and exercise
integration. While the CSAs continue to make
notable investments to comply with JTS program
requirements, these resources are limited.
On-site JTSS fielding is a force multiplier and a
vital element in sustaining CSA participation in
the JTS program. Currently, there are two CSAs
(National Security Agency and Defense Information
Systems Agency) who do not have a JTSS.
Endstate Complete the implementation of JTSS to
NSA and DISA. Ensure continued JTSS fielding to

Simulation Gaps

Briefer Col Walrond
  • Issue 09-001 Joint Training Enterprise
    identified key training Modeling Simulation
    (MS) gaps which are currently unfunded.
  • Discussion As tasked during the WJTSC 08-2, the
    Joint Training Enterprise executed a Training Gap
    Analysis Forum (TGAF) in November 2008 in order
    to identify the top training MS gaps.  The forum
    identified over 29 gaps and validated them with
    the 2004 TCAoA baseline. The forum was conducted
    using the established JTRG requirement
    procedures. The gaps identified from the TGAF are
    currently unfunded.
  • Endstate Approval of validated TGAF process and
    results funding or mitigation plans to support
    the development of solutions that close the
    training MS gaps identified by the Joint
    Training Enterprise.

Joint Staff Officer Proficiency

Briefer MAJ Coryell
Issue 08-017 The ramp up time to achieve desired
proficiency for officers reporting for joint
assignment at combatant commands is too
long. Discussion The results of the Joint Staff
Officer Study included the desired 15 core
competencies for Joint Staff Officers identified
by combatant command senior leadership. Lack of
competency in identified areas were found to
result in extended ramp up time for officers to
achieve desired proficiency levels in joint staff
officer tasks. Combatant commands expressed
interest in the Joint Staff J-7 leading the
development of Joint Staff Officer training
support resources to close the identified
proficiency gap. Endstate Policy and
supporting program of instruction that leads to
the reduction in time for officers to become
proficient in joint staff officer duties. POAM
Joint Staff J-7 in coordination with combatant
commands develops joint staff officer training
support resources. Combatant commands staff and
assess draft training support resources and
provide input to JS J-7. JS J-7 modifies draft
resources as required and combatant commands
implement Joint Staff Officer training in command
training programs. JS J-7 in coordination with
combatant commands coordinates additional

Joint Command and Control (JC2) Training

Briefer Mr Chiaverotti
Issue 08-005 No joint organization assigned
responsibility for managing JC2 training.
Discussion Transition from Global Command and
Control (GCCS) Family of Systems to Net-Enabled
Command Capability (NECC) offers opportunity for
effective and efficient training delivery to
individual warfighters worldwide based on a joint
standards-based foundation. NECC provides a
single, joint architecture to establish a common
environment for warfighters at all levels of JC2
in which both systems and functional training
curricula can be re-used and tailored to
warfighter needs. NECC material developers will
provide appropriate individual functional
training packages for each NECC capability module
produced. Current GCCS-Joint Single Service
Training Manager model doesnt provide authority
and resources to ensure NECC-related training
packages are effective, standardized, entered
into extant joint curricula, and distributed to
Services and Agencies for re-use. Endstate A
joint command and control training management
organization with the necessary authority and
resources codified by a CJCSI, in-place and

Monthly Training Assessment Update Requirement

Briefer LCDR Jaureguizar
Issue 07-019 Inconsistent assessments in the
Joint Training Information Management System
(JTIMS) Discussion JTIMS is an integral part
of a larger system, including the Defense
Readiness Reporting System (DRRS), that
identifies readiness deficiencies and helps
develop solutions. Policy states it is critical
to have a linkage between Joint readiness and
training DRRS requires assessments every 30
days. Therefore it is necessary for JTIMS
training assessments to match DRRS 30-day
readiness assessment requirements. Update JTIMS
monthly Task Proficiency Assessments (TPA) and
Mission Training Assessments (MTA) are sent to
DRRS real-time. DRRS and JTIMS are integrated so
that DRRS currently displays TPAs and will, in
the future, display MTAs. CJCSI 3500.01E, Joint
Training Policy and Guidance, requires monthly
TPAs. Endstate JTIMS assessments are
synchronized with DRRS requirements. Endstate
has been achieved, however, recommend the issue
remain open until WJTSC 09-2. POAM JTIMS v3.1
(April 09) will include the capability to assess
each task individually. Recommend retaining this
issue until WJTSC 09-2. Monitor compliance with

  • Issue 06-007 Consensus has not been achieved in
    the joint training community regarding how joint
    training trends and joint training assessment
    taskers will be achieved.
  • Discussion JS J7 will develop an annual
    assessment of Joint Training trends to brief at

Integration of Interagency Partners
Briefer Mr Quay
Issue 07-001 Inadequate unified action partner
representation/environmental emulation in
Combatant Command and Service training,
education, exercises, and experimentation (TEEE)
degrades the quality of these events. Discussion
Department of Defense (DOD) recognizes the value
of interagency participation, role players,
senior mentors, and/or simulation cells to
provide authoritative and realistic interagency
input and support to DOD TEEE events. Other
agencies lack the capacity and often cannot
afford the level of seniority/experience and
commitment that DOD desires for event design,
execution, and assessment. Endstate DOD events
are conducted in a whole of government context
and a realistic environment that accurately
reflects the complexity of integrated planning
and operations. POAM To enhance TEEE 1.
Office of the Deputy Under Secretary of Defense
(Readiness) (ODUSD(R)) develop a strategy and
process for resourcing, requesting, and
scheduling interagency integration into combatant
command and Service TEEE at the front end of the
planning cycle, including participation as
training audience and Joint Exercise Control
Group. 2. Analyze interagency participation gaps
and mitigation options. 3. ODUSD(R) implement
mechanisms to source vetted and validated agency
personnel or contractors to support DOD TEEE
interagency participation requirements. OPRs

Integrated Information Sharing Policy Revision

Briefer Mr Quay
Issue 09-002 Inability to share information
among interagency partners due to existing policy
limits realistic planning and training. Discussion
Joint Strategic Capabilities Plan requires
interagency collaboration and participation in
plan development and execution however, current
policy limits information sharing among partner
agencies and organizations in plan development.
Ultimately, this leads to missed opportunities to
leverage whole of government capabilities,
inefficient use of government resources, and
potentially duplication of effort. Endstate
Department of Defense plans are developed and
conducted in a whole of government context and
exercised in a realistic environment that
accurately reflects the complexity of integrated
operations. POAM Office of the Under Secretary
of Defense (Personnel Readiness) (OUSD(PR))
and Office of the Under Secretary of Defense
(Policy) (OUSD(P)) assess the need for cross
domain information sharing as it relates to plan
development exercising and implementation and, if
validated, chart the way ahead to resolve. OPR

United States Korea Command (USKORCOM) MS
Briefer Ken Goad
Submitted by USJFCOM
Proposed Issue 09-003 United States Forces
Korea (USFKs) current federation of models is
used only at USFK, does not meet future KORCOM
transition training needs, is at high risk for
sustainability due to unsupported legacy models,
and does not leverage the joint standard, the
Joint Live Virtual Constructive (JLVC) Federation
of models. Discussion USFK has unique
challenges in meeting near term and long term
future Joint training environment needs. USJFCOM
in coordination with USFK, USPACOM and the
Services defined the problem statement, reviewed
courses of action and recommended a way ahead to
address the needs at a May 2009 workshop. The
stakeholders recommended a unified architecture
approach that utilizes supported Joint and
Service models built off of USJFCOMs JLVC
Federation standards. Savings will be realized by
the Services because integration requirements
will be reduced to one federation. The
recommendation along with cost estimates and a
POAM have been provided to JS-J7 and OSD.
Funding options to address this issue are under
review. Timely implementation decision is
required to fulfill US and alliance training
commitments and prevent reduction in training
effectiveness or complete failure. Endstate An
interoperable, modular, and scalable unified JLVC
simulation architecture that is capable of
modeling the entire Korean theater and range of
military operations, integrated with Korean
models and simulations, and sustained by the
Joint and Service community. POAM Identify
funding shortfalls and resource plans, identify
implementation risks, conduct further

Joint Issue Resolution System
Submitted by USNORTHCOM
  • Proposed Issue 09-004 Combatant Commands and
    Services need an automated collaboration tool for
    joint issue resolution.
  • Discussion
  • a. Current process does not provide effective
    collaboration between combatant commands, combat
    support agencies (CSA), and Services, with well
    defined decision points.

    defines issues as validated observations that
    require corrective action. This validated
    observation does not become a lesson learned
    until the corrective action is employed and

    the JLLP does not provide a system for how joint
    issues should be resolved in a collaborative
  • A joint issue resolution system needs to

    of the DoD and NEP After Action Review. The DoD
    process to support this instruction, to include
    collaboration and information sharing
    requirements between DoD and the interagency, and
    use of existing joint tools to enable this
    process, needs to be codified.
  • Endstate An automated joint issue resolution
    system integrated into the JLLP providing the
    ability for all combatant commands, CSAs, and
    Services to recommend issues for joint
    resolution, collaborate on existing issues, and
    maintain visibility on the progress of all
    existing issues, with decision points and
    authorities identified to approve and execute the
    corrective action plan. This issue resolution
    system should be compatible with interagency

Submitted by USNORTHCOM
  • Proposed Issue 09-005 No capability exists to
    automatically transfer data between Joint
    Training Information Management System (JTIMS)
    and Joint Lessons Learned Information System
  • Discussion
  • JTIMS and JLLIS are separate and complementary
    collection tools for observations.
  • Task Performance Observations (TPOs) submitted
    to JTIMS may have joint lessons learned
    applicability, requiring submission to the Joint
    Lessons Learned Program (JLLP) via JLLIS.
  • TPOs may identify an issue requiring joint issue
    resolution per definitions of JLLP, final
    resolution of an issue would provide a lesson
    learned, which should be included in the joint
    lessons learned data base, provided by JLLIS.
  • JLLIS observations may provide additional
    information to better enable the development of a
    Training Proficiency Evaluation (TPE) or Training
    Proficiency Assessment (TPA).
  • DoDI 3020.47 states that each combatant
    command, CSA, and Military Department (Service)
    shall determine which performance observations
    in JTIMS should be elevated in status to a
    lesson learned, and that these lessons learned
    should be included in the JLLP through JLLIS.

    observation and evaluation and lessons learned
    tools for combatant commands during joint
  • Combatant commands receive JWFC / DTT and
    support for two designated exercises per year.
  • During previous USNORTHCOM exercises, JWFC /
    DTTs do not record observations in JTIMS for

    issues and processes
  • JWFC / DTT non-use of JTIMS and JLLIS is not
    cost and time effective JWFC / DTT personnel
    render observations and recommended corrective
    actions, but non-recording of these observations
    in JTIMS and JLLIS negate the purpose of JTIMS
    and JLLIS being a data source and means for
    future corrective actions.
  • Providing JWFC / DTT personnel JTIMS and JLLIS
