Title: WJTSC Master Issue Deck

WJTSCMaster Issue Deck
Pre WJTSC 09-1 as of 25 Feb 09
  • To streamline review, discussion, and resolution
    of issues, all open issues have been binned to
    one of five categories
  • 1. Exercise-related 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.

Exercise Related
  • DOD Participation Challenges in the NEP
  • Use of Joint Live Virtual Constructive
  • Missile Warning / Defense Systems Training
  • Experimentation Testing (ET) in Joint
  • National Transition Training Plan
  • Deconfliction of Combatant Command Exercises

DOD Participation Challenges in the National
Exercise Program
  • Issue 08-003 DOD Participation Challenges in the
    National Exercise Program (NEP)
  • Discussion
  • Combatant command NEP participation challenges
    Combatant command objectives below the strategic
    level often cant be met or are compromised (in
    Tier I, CJCS will provide his objectives and the
    recommended level of combatant command play) New
    administration transition - uncertainty WRT to
    HSC/NSC structure and the role of an HSC EE
    Sub-PCC vice the NSC TEEE Sub-PCC in the future
  • No formal DoD process for combatant commands to
    nominate command exercises for the 5-year NEP
    exercise schedule (To be published in a revised
    CJCSI). JS will provide combatant commands
    results of sub-PCC meetings (66 grade).
  • 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 (Feb 3, 2009 NEX scheduling conference
    provided Tier I, II calendar for the next two
    years, but lack specific dates) (Request made to
    DHS for schedule fidelity. Request was favorably
    received and NLE exercise and planning dates
    through 2010 have been established)
  • Endstate Improved joint training effectiveness
    and efficiency as directed by Chairmans Joint
    Training Guidance. Supported / supporting roles
    IAW Plans / UCP. Staffs build relationships,
    conduct realistic rehearsal with actual
  • POAM
  • - Use WJTSC, 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 DOD
    exercise calendar input will be outlined in the
    revised CSEP CJCSI)
  • - Formal process for DoD submissions to NEP has
    briefed but not captured in a CJCSI. However,
    still need more fidelity on future years
    exercises regarding dates and themes.
  • - Support DHS/FEMA/NED 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. JFCOM/JWFC provide technical
    support and provide permanent JTENS / SIPRNET
    connectivity for the long term integration with
    DOD exercises.

Brief Issue WJTSC 08-01
Use of Joint Live Virtual Constructive (JLVC)
  • 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 (TC AoA) 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
  • 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. Investigate JLVC cross-domain solutions.

Missile Warning / Defense Systems Training

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 that stimulates real world
systems that is dynamic, portable, scalable and
affordable. 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
simulation requirements. Endstate A federated
Joint missile simulation capability which will
stimulate all applicable operational missile
awareness systems to meet all stakeholders
missile warning and integrated air and missile
defense simulation requirements. POAM SHORT
TERM Develop a federated missile 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 2.

Experimentation Testing (ET) in Joint Training

Issue 04-003 Lack of common DoD-wide process for
incorporation of ET into joint training.
Discussion DOTE engages multiple combatant
commands to search for venues. Short-notice
insertions disruptive to exercise planning. OSD
seeking to more effectively enable test activity
with joint context and reduce possible impact to
training audience. USJFCOM requires training
environment to assess capabilities such as DJC2,
SJFHQ. Joint context and resource limitations
require test and prototyping activity in
training. USJFCOM developed a manual for
integrating ET into USJFCOM sponsored and
supported training. Endstate Common policy and
supporting tools for incorporating ET activity
in training. Emphasis placed on the ET community
to participate at the early stages of the JELC
(ie CDC/IPC). They need to articulate what their
capabilities are how it could benefit the
combatant command. POAM OSD(PR) developing
a DoD publication to fill this void. OPRs OSD

National Transition Training Plan
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
possible to identify 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. One goal of the
Transition Training Program is to motivate
intense, early interaction between principals of
departments and agencies and their emergency
program staffs (i.e. Ops Centers) that provide
them support within their organizations. The
Federal Interagency POHA Concept Plan is in final
coordination and represents a Federal Strategic
Plan for maintaining operational continuity
during the upcoming 2008-2009 Transition period.
The NEP Transition Training Program supports this
Concept Plan. No additional funding requirements
are expected other than those associated with
CEP/JEP exercises The CEP Positive Response is
linked to NLE 09 Endstate The culmination of the
NEP Transition Training Program is a capstone NEP
Tier I Exercise in (27-31) July 2009 which will
serve as an immersive experience for the senior
officials. This is National Level Exercise 2009
(NLE 09) (formerly known as TOPOFF). The central
focus of the exercise is PREVENTION but expect
COCOMs to provide significant input to SECDEF,
CJCS on simulated actions, plans, options,
legalities with respect to both DSCA, Homeland
Defense, and overseas government AT/FP. An
expected outcome of the program is senior-level
questioning of both internal and interagency
processes. The July CPX will be preceded by a
Principals Level Exercise (PLE) on 17 Jun 09.
N-NC will also provide training support to other
departments via DSCA courses and TTXs during
March-August 2009. POAM As outlined below.

Deconfliction of Combatant Command Exercises
Issue 08-014 Scheduling resources to support
combatant command events is challenging given
daily OPSTEMPO, 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 requiring USAF resources.
Authority has been given to USJFCOM to
synchronize/deconflict combatant command
exercises. However, de-confliction issues remain
and scheduled de-confliction conferences have
been focused more on Service rather than
combatant command exercises. Without a refocused
deconfliction resolution process, the Services
will be forced to prioritize/reduce their support
for competing combatant command exercises.
Current exercise forecast have scheduled major
combatant command exercises (Talisman Saber,
Ardent Sentry, Austere Challenge, etc.) 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 run by USJFCOM involving all
stakeholders that effectively de-conflicts
combatant command exercises (recommend at least
one working group at each WJTSC). Conflicting
resolution issues to be resolved by the CE2 SLT
at each WJTSC. POAM USJFCOM re-energize/refocus
their exercise scheduling conferences with

CCDR Joint Evaluation Team
  • Issue 07-015 Combatant Commander desires a joint
    evaluation team that can measure Joint Task Force
    (JTF) performance to standard
  • Discussion
  • Combatant Commanders (CCDRs) are responsible
    for certifying the readiness of HQ staffs to
    serve as JTF-capable HQ. A key element of this
    task is to measure the capability of the HQ staff
    (during a culminating exercise) relative to
    standards. The culminating exercise comes at the
    conclusion of a detailed joint and multinational
    training regimen for the JTF.
  • USPACOM requires a qualified team to observe
    and evaluate to standard, provide feedback both
    to the JTF Commander and CCDR, and to provide
    documentation on JTF performance to assist
    individual JTF and theater program improvements.
  • Joint Training System (JTS) philosophy and
    execution have matured to where training
    audiences need critical insight and clearly
    documented feedback of what they did right and
    what areas require improvement.
  • USJFCOM JWFC DTT states these requirements are
    outside their charter.
  • Endstate Qualified joint evaluation team
    available to assist in JTF Certification.

  • Issue 08-013 The Joint Training Enterprise must
    cut 11.8M from specific FY08 programs to meet
    approved POM 10 funding levels.
  • Discussion The directed 31 cut in RDTE
    (11.8M) from FY08 to FY10 will have a major
    impact on the Joint Training Enterprise
    Increased costs to Services and combatant
    commands to execute training Reduction in
    critical capability to support Irregular Warfare
    research and development and, Reduction in
    training capability.
  • Endstate Training risk to the Force minimized,
    no mission essential tasks eliminated, schedule
    flexibility optimized, and cost/benefit to the
    Joint Training Enterprise evaluated.
  • POAM USJFCOM identify targeted cuts.
    Combatant Commands evaluate impact and develop
    contingency plans, as required.

GEF-Driven Analysis of CE2 Requirements
Issue 08-015 GEF-Driven (CCDR Theater Campaign
Plan) Analysis of CE2 Funding Requirements Discuss
ion The "buying power" of CE2T2 POM funding is
eroding based on prevailing economic trends for
the costs of fuel, directly influencing strategic
lift (air, sea, surface) and commercial
ticketing. With OSD guidance to stay within
CE2T2 and not seek additional resources, the POM
forecast presents a relatively "flat" picture
considering the stand-up of USAFRICOM only
provided an additional 4.5M/year to CE2
(combatant command HQ support). Guided by the
GEF, CCDRs must determine what is the baseline
level of performance against their Theater
Campaign/Engagement Plans as reflected in their
Joint Training Plans and overall exercise and
training programs. CE2T2 funds are allocated
based on historical funding rates, versus a
bottom-up review of baseline requirements. Under
zero-growth, stakeholders are reluctant to
prioritize their requirements across the
enterprise (all stakeholders), as any increase
will result in another command's
decrease. Endstate Enterprise bottom-up review
of combatant command baseline requirements for
JETP, SIF, combatant command HQ Support, JWFC
Support, and JTF/FC HQ Certification, resulting
in a more accurate assessment of CCDRs' ability
to execute their programs. Results of analysis
could be used to rebalance CE2 allocations in
accordance with the GEF. POAM CE2 SLT conduct
baseline review and develop recommendations to
the T2 SAG. OPR JS J-7 JETD OCRs Combatant

  • Issue 08-018 Coordination and synchronization of
    JTEN services and LVC training enhancements for
    exercises conducted by ABCA partner nations and
    combatant commands/Services.
  • Discussion  JTEN currently has temporary
    connections to like networks in Australia and the
    United Kingdom, with a connection to Canada on
    the horizon. No formal procedure exists for
    scheduling the use of the JTEN by ABCA partners
    or combatant commands/Services for the scheduling
    and provisioning of distributed training assets
    (i.e. Virtual and Constructive training

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. AMETL, ATP, 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
(NSA and DISA) who do not have a JTSS. Endstate
Complete the implementation of JTSS to NSA and
DISA. Ensure continued JTSS fielding to each
CSA. POAM TBD, pending results of the Blue

Immersive Learning Environments (ILES)
  • Issue 06-021 Requirement for Large Scale Use of
    Online and On Demand Individual and Group
    Training, Mission Planning and Rehearsal
  • Discussion SGST meets this shortfall by
    providing a training, and mission rehearsal
    capability that supports both DOD and Interagency
    partners in meeting our national security
    requirements. SGST is a flexible, on-line, and
    distributed training and mission rehearsal
    capability that covers the training life cycle
    from beginning to end. USJFCOM and USNORTHCOM
    conducted tests showing SGST can significantly
    shorten the JELC while improving knowledge /
    capability. USNORTHCOM and USJFCOM are
    collaborating on the development of SGST Version
    1. This SGST system evolution facilitates Joint
    and Interagency training, mission planning,
    rehearsal, and COA analysis.
  • Endstate SGST established as a Joint Program of
    Record (POR) to achieve unity of effort in
    individual/small group training across combatant
    commands, Services, Combat Support Agencies and
    Interagency partners. JKDDC leverages training
    transformation funds to provide a centrally
    managed / decentralized and interdependent
    executed SGST capability, in which SGST may be
    configured by the combatant commands to meet
    their training needs. This approach enables
    content sharing across organizational boundaries
    and rapidly supports and optimizes evolving
    changes to organizational structures, people,
    processes and technologies. JKDDC JMO takes
    responsibility for the JKO web enabled SGST
    capability, providing integration with the JKO
    Portal to provide a generalized small group
    training capability.
  • POAM OSD contract ends Jun 08. JKDDC JMO
    accepted responsibility for the JKO web enabled

Joint Staff Officer Proficiency

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 J7 leading the
development of a Joint Staff Officer Course as a
baseline training course to close the identified
proficiency gap. Endstate CJCS policy and
supporting program of instruction that leads to
the reduction in time for officers to become
proficient in joint staff officer duties. POAM

an integral part of a larger system, including
DRRS, that will identify readiness deficiencies
and help develop solutions. Yet JTIMS data update
requirements do not support timely identification
of deficiencies and issues. Joint training
readiness has been identified as a priority
issue by T2 leadership, and use of JTIMS is being
reviewed as part of the 2007 T2 Block Assessment.
Policy (JTM) states the commanders assessment
will be published as part of the annual JTP. A
recent review indicated that 60 of combatant
command JMET assessments are not published in
JTIMS. Policy also states it is critical to
have a linkage between Joint readiness and
training. Part of the T2 Block Assessment is
examining the linkage between DRRS and JTIMS.
DRRS requires assessments every 30 days whereas
JTIMS doesnt have the same rigor. Therefore it
appears there is a disconnect between training
and overall readiness assessments. The linkage
that will send TPAs and MTAs from JTIMS to DRRS
is the technical part of the solution. WJTSC
08-2 Update JTIMS currently provides the
capabilities to enter and approve assessments.
DRRS currently displays TPAs and will, in the
future, display MTAs. CJCSI 3500.01E, Joint
Training Policy and Guidance, updated 31 May 08
to include the requirement to provide monthly
Task Proficiency Assessments (TPAs). Endstate
JTIMS assessments will be synchronized with DRRS
requirements to provide a reliable, timely, and
consistent element of the system. POAM
JTIMS v3.1 (March 09) will include the
capability to assess each task individually.
Recommend retaining this Issue until WJTSC 09-1
when users can validate v3.1 capabilities.

Joint Training Trends and Assessment
  • 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. The JTPG (CJCSI 3500.01C) stated
    USJFCOM is responsible for annually assessing
    the effectiveness of joint training, to include
    describing emerging training trends in the joint
    community briefing training trends at the
    September WJTSC and reporting results of the
    training assessment to the Chairman. Combatant
    Commands / CSAs will annually provide USJFCOM
    with their joint training trends by 30 June for
    integration into USJFCOMs annual training trends
    brief presented at the September WJTSC. CJCSI
    3500.01D was updated to state JS J7 will develop
    annual assessment of Joint Training to brief
    trends at the WJTSC. CJCSI 3500.01E was updated
    to specify monthly TPA reporting requirement.
  • Endstate Joint training trends are identified
    and briefed annually.
  • POAM JTIMS v2.4 currently provides Training
    Trends Reporting Capabilities and this
    requirement will be analyzed and reviewed for
    additional enhancements semi-annually. JS J-7
    briefed first Trend Analysis reports during WJTSC
    08-2. JTIMS v3.1 (March 09) will provide
    additional filters to select the assessment
    timeframe (rather than by FY only), as well as
    the monthly individual task training proficiency
    assessments to provide additional fidelity. Next
    trend analysis will use JTIMS capability and be
    briefed at WJTSC 09-2.

Integration of Interagency Partners
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
DoD recognizes the value of role players, senior
mentors, and/or simulation cells to provide
authoritative and realistic interagency input and
support to DoD TEEE events. Other agencies 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.
OSD/PR develops a strategy and process for
resourcing, prioritizing, requesting, and
scheduling interagency integration into Combatant
Command and Service TEEE at the front end of the
planning cycle. 2. Analyze mitigation to gaps
in DOD IA process, including consideration of a
simcell-like capability. 3. OSD PR implement
mechanisms to source vetted and validated agency
personnel or contractors for DOD TEEE. 4.
