Title: WJTSC 081 Master Issue Deck

WJTSC 08-1Master Issue Deck
Post Working Group as of 13 Mar 08
  • 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.

Exercise and Joint Training Synchronization
Red JS J7 JETD Comments
  • Issue 06-020 USG exercise programs not
    adequately synchronized to effectively,
    efficiently and realistically exercise National
    Crisis Response readiness.
  • Discussion DOD forces conduct exercises with
    civil authorities in the NORTHCOM AOR without the
    knowledge of USNORTHCOM (recommend delete first
    sentence). Scope of national exercises is
    limited by resources. Incorrect procedures can
    be reinforced, leading to actual responses
    without proper authorization, appropriate DOD
    funding and NEP consistency. Lack of
    synchronization contributes to lack of stability
    and predictability. Scheduling and exercise
    design issues still pose challenges to an
    effective NEP. Benefit to the synchronization of
    exercises downward between the services, their
    major commands and combatant commands. Effective
    exercise planning requires a reliable 2-5 year
    schedule for resources. All USG departments and
    agencies do not have adequate visibility over all
    pertinent exercises conducted in their AOR
  • Endstate
  • HSC/NSC designate certain exercises in a
    coordinated 5 year schedule as NEP Tier I,
    approve goals and objectives and provide top
    level guidance Scope out objectives, exercise
    participants and exercise locations to ensure
    cohesive planning with interagency partners
    (Completed at the 31 Jan 08 NEP scheduling
    conference. Combatant commands were present)
  • Use WJTSC and NEPS conferences to coordinate 5
    year schedule and establish coordinated schedule
    for NLE with 5 year plan and solid dates 2 years
    out using a building block approach with exercise
    scopes tailored to priority objectives (Complete
    to the extent possible by identifying a target
    month on the NEX to conduct these exercises)
  • Development of a standard JELC for NLE events to
    ensure greater synchronization in the planning
  • POAM
  • Distribute approved NSC/HSC NEP guidance
  • Coordinate the Implementation Guidance and
    review major national exercises at each WJTSC
  • Codify doctrine for linking exercises to include
    a process to nominate DoD exercises for Tier II
    and Tier III via sub-PCC (Complete)
  • Establish iterative process with DHS to shift
    Tier designations as needed prior to final 18
    months of JELC (?)

Red JS J7 JETD Comments
Issue 07-021 Ensure proper DoD representatives
and subject matter experts are nominated in a
timely fashion to support PLE. Discussion Delay
in selecting PLE topics and objectives severely
constrains ability to select proper DoD
representatives and SMEs and provide them with
background data for the exercise (While the
objectives were not known until the 11th hour,
SMEs from DoD were present at the 20 Feb PLE and
will be at the 5 Mar PLE) Endstate DHS provide
PLE topics and objectives 90 days prior to
exercise. DHS provide SME with background data
7 days prior to exercise (20 Feb 08 PLE had SME
representation. 90 day requirement is unrealistic
and not achievable. BLUF is that the point needs
to be made to the HSC or NSC needs to identify
objectives as early as possible) POAM DoD
propose requirements to DHS via sub-PCC. OPR JS

DOD Participation Challenges in the National
Exercise Program
Red JS J7 JETD Comments
  • Issue 08-003 DOD Participation Challenges in the
    National Exercise Program (NEP)
  • Discussion
  • a. Combatant command NEP participation
    challenges Combatant command objectives often
    cant be met or are compromised (in Tier I, CJCS
    will provide his objectives and the recommended
    level of COCOM play) lack of synchronization
    across federal spectrum no formal DoD process
    for combatant commands to nominate command
    exercises for the 5-year NEP exercise schedule
    (To be published in the revised CEP CJCSI).
    Combatant commands provide input to input
    through the J7 sub-PCC rep). JS will provide
    COCOMs results of sub-PCC meetings.
  • 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 (Jan 31, 2008 NEX scheduling
    conference provided Tier I, II calendar for the
    next two years, but lack specific dates)
  • c. Combatant commands impacted by topic require
    seat at Principal Level Exercises (PLE)
  • 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 CJCS I)
  • - Support the development of a formal process
    within DoD for combatant commands and Services to
    nominate exercises (complete) for inclusion in
    5-year NEP Calendar for Tier II and III exercises
    and determine level of participation in NEP Tier

Alignment of Cyber-focused Exercises
Issue 07-023 Multiple agencies have
cyber-focus exercises that need to be aligned.
Discussion Establishing process to align
cyber-focused exercises increases efficiency.
Allows opportunities to share lessons learned,
deconflict use of scarce resources and achieve
synergistic effect by planning policy-oriented
exercises in concert with tactical,
technology-oriented exercises. Endstate
Cyber-focused exercises aligned and included in
5-year NEP schedule. POAM DoD host an

Use of Joint Live Virtual Constructive (JLVC)
OFFICE USE Updated 1/8/08 - SDH
  • 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, yet JLVC is not
    provided as part of the standard modeling and
    simulation (MS) architecture for joint
  • 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
    fidelity to realistically model strategic
    movement and force sustainment. This training
    shortfall was noted in the Joint Staffs Training
    Capabilities Analysis of Alternatives (TC AoA)
    Gap 14. While JLVC addresses this gap, using the
    JLVC federation is an option only with additional
    Combatant Commander funding.
  • Endstate Appropriate use of JLVC in Combatant
    Command exercises.
  • 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.

BMD Systems Training Capability
Issue 07-017 CCDRs require a distributed,
integrated, synthetic Ballistic Missile Defense
Systems (BMDS) training system using real world
system capabilities, scenarios and
players. Discussion a. Independent simulated
missile defense training architectural
development between the Joint Forces Command
(JFCOM) Joint National Training Capability (JNTC)
and the Missile Defense Agencies (MDA)
Distributed Multi-echelon Training System (DMETS)
has resulted in duplication of synthetic missile
exercise and training requirements for Combatant
Commands, Components, and Services. b. Currently
the synthetic BMDS training environment does not
integrate or support multi-tiered mission sets
involving elements/units operating at all tiers
within the training architecture. c. There is a
need for a comprehensive ballistic missile
defense training system architecture that can
provide effective and efficient training for all
Tiers during unit or joint training exercises.  
Endstate A BMDS training architecture that
provides a "plug and play" capability that
facilitates growth and dynamic equipment
reconfigurations to simulate any/all elements,
reduces stand alone training systems / artificial
work-arounds, and decreases costs associated with
employing and sustaining multiple training
platforms.  POAM USJFCOM, in partnership
with USSTRATCOM develop BMDS Joint Training and
align Service enabled development of training
with COCOM mission training and exercise support
requirements. Concurrently USJFCOM, in close
coordination with MDA and the Combatant Commands,
develop a requirement based integrated and
federated BMDS synthetic training environment
interoperable at all tiers. OPR USSTRATCOM

Experimentation Testing (ET) in Joint Training
OFFICE USE Updated 1/8/08 - SDH
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 embed test activity in training to
test with appropriate joint context. 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 for incorporating ET
activity in training POAM Form PAT to develop
DoD-wide process based on USJFCOM Manual, USPACOM
instruction, and other guidance. Develop
requirements for supporting tools and submit
through established requirements process. OPR

Collaborative Process for Joint
Concept Development and Experimentation (JCDE)
  • Issue 07-018 Implementation of a coherent
    and collaborative process for JCDE.
  • Discussion Pursuant to their charter and
    consistent with UCP 06 to transform the US
    military, USJFCOM leads joint concept development
    and conducts joint experimentation designed to
    streamline our warfighting functions to more
    effectively meet the complexities envisioned for
    the future. Joint Operations Concepts (JOpsC)
    and Joint Experimentation (JE) are the primary
    mechanisms to identify and assess insights to
    shape capabilities for the joint warfighter.
    Joint experimentation activities explore the
    solutions proposed by future joint concepts. JE
    must have definite actionable recommendations
    ensuring full collaboration and coordination with
    combatant commands, services, and defense
  • Endstate Recommendations reported annually in
    the JE Status and Recommendations (S R) Report
    and the Report to The Congress on Joint
    Warfighting Experimentation should be in the form
    of either DOTMLPF Change Recommendations (DCRs)
    to inform the Joint Capabilities Integration and
    Development System (JCIDS), insights to shape new
    joint concepts to inform JOpsC, or
    recommendations for follow-on joint
    experimentation activities for inclusion in

  • Issue 06-025 Current JELC is resource intensive
    (e.g. people, travel , time).
  • Discussion
  • JELC provides framework for design, planning,
    preparation, execution, analysis of JEP
  • Notionally 12-18 months but has inherent
    flexibility 6-9 month cycles not uncommon
  • JELC conferences typically held at supported
    commands location
  • Collaborative communication technologies have
    improved in both capability and reliability
  • Combination of collaborative information
    environment and face-to-face conferences may
    reduce resource intensity while maintaining
    effective product oriented JELC process
  • Endstate Efficient, effective, flexible JELC.
    Combatant commands execute collaborative JELC
    resulting in better training and more efficient
    cost savings.
  • POAM Working Group explored efficiencies to
    current JELC and recommended possible CIE tools
    and creative management. During WJSTC 07-1
    combatant commands nominated events to evaluate
    use of collaborative tools in selected FY08
    exercises. Combatant commands report out or

Life Cycle and exercise budget should go to the
responsible Combatant Commander Discussion IAW
DOD Directive 3150.8, DOD Response to
Radiological Accidents, dated 13 Jun 1996,
Geographical Combatant Commanders (GCCs) shall
plan for, establish, maintain, and exercise
Response Task Forces (RTFs) to manage actions
required to respond to a radiological accident.
Furthermore, each responsible GCC shall conduct
an RTF exercise at least once each year. The
scope and duration of the exercise will be
determined by the sponsoring command. Currently,
the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Nuclear,
Chemical and Biological Defense Programs
(ASD(NCB)) conducts oversight of DODs response
capabilities by managing DODs national-level
exercise program the Defense Threat Reduction
Agency (DTRA) serves as the DOD lead for
coordinating DOD radiological accident response
planning, training and national-level exercises
with other Federal agencies and the Services
train and equip RTF forces to respond to
radiological accidents. CDR USNORTHCOM position
is that NUWAXs need to be recognized as part of
the National Exercise Program (NEP) to ensure
full Interagency integration, and intends for
USNORTHCOM to be the lead in the planning and
execution of all NUWAXs conducted in his
AOR. Endstate Policy is developed by ATSD(NCB),
DTRA provides the responsible GCC technical
assistance with exercise design and control, and
the Services continue to train, equip and
exercise RTFs once per year as prescribed. The
responsible GCC has overall lead for the
scheduling, design and control of NUWAXs in the
respective AOR. POAM USNORTHCOM receives NUWAX
budget from DTRA Services retain funding for

Scheduling and OPSTEMPO
  • Issue 08-007 Supporting Combatant Commands are
    challenged with satisfying Joint Exercise Program
    requirements given daily OPSTEMPO, personnel,
    fiscal and time constraints. This challenging
    situation is exacerbated when exercises are
    scheduled simultaneously during periods of
    increased activity. Earlier and more informed
    scheduling could alleviate support challenges,
    improve the quality and timeliness of support and
    potentially save resources by offering less
    expensive alternatives, particularly when
    strategic lift via the Defense Transportation
    System (DTS) is concerned.
  • Discussion Individual combatant command
    exercises are planned and scheduled without fully
    studying the impact at any given time on required
    supporting capabilities (i.e. airlift assets, M
    S supporting systems, direct personnel
    augmentation, etc.). Additionally, there is
    neither a mechanism to deconflict between
    competing combatant command/Service exercises nor
    one to deconflict with known operational surge
    periods that further tax the same resources. No
    single scheduling authority exists and individual
    exercises are planned presuming they will be
  • End State Exercise scheduling is synchronized
    between Combatant Commanders taking into account
    real-world constraints and demands/costs of
    supporting JEP events. Combatant Commanders
    Exercise Engagement (CE2) forum recognizes and
    forwards solution for a deconfliction authority
    with informed visibility of real-world operations
    as well as joint and service exercise
    requirements. This deconfliction authority will
    be empowered to enforce calendar synchronization
    across the joint training enterprise.

Functional Exercises
  • Issue 08-008 Prioritization of USTRANSCOMs
    Functional Exercises in support of Geographic
    Combatant Commanders (GCC) Joint Exercise
  • Discussion USTRANSCOM sponsors four functional
    exercises Joint Logistics Over The Shore
    (JLOTS), the Joint Container Exercise Program
    (JCEP), Turbo Activation (TA), and Ultimate
    Caduceus (UC). While these functional exercises
    are sponsored by USTRANSCOM, they hone the skills
    requirements. In an effort to maintain the
    appropriate level of focus and priority on these
    unique skill sets USTRANSCOM requires GCC support
    incorporating them into out-year exercise
  • While these capabilities exist exclusively to
    support GCCs, USTRANSCOM currently submits Joint
    Exercise prioritization for them, ranking them
    along with our internal Command CPXs (Turbo

  • 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

Joint Enterprise Principles we must ensure that
we understand the operational requirements and
architectures before we invest resources. That
direction, coupled with USJFCOM Unified Command
Plan tasks as the Joint Force Trainer,
establishes the need to better understand wider
combatant command joint training requirements.

Joint National Training Center (JNTC) Governance
Issue 08-006 Combatant commands have very
limited means to influence decision making within
the JNTC Governance Model Discussion JNTC as one
of the three legs of T2 has always had a primary
focus of improving quality and quantity of joint
context associated with Service training. Hence
the voting stakeholders were the Services.
Combatant commands have never had direct
representation. Combatant commands are
represented by a single Joint Staff POC. With
the proposed revised JNTC Governance business
rules it is not clear how the re-organization of
JNTC governing bodies does anything significantly
different to enable a greater voice for combatant
commands or address adjudication measures for
competing JNTC based priorities. As the proposed
rules are new, there maybe a need for
explanations / education on the new rules.
Under the current structure how will differences
between combatant commands priorities and Service
requirements be adjudicated when conflicts arise?
How do actions like the PJTE and associated
Joint Training and Experimentation Network (JTEN)
nominations fit into the voting scheme given that
combatant commands do not have a direct role in
the stakeholder process? Endstate Add a
business rule that allows the proper adjudication
of conflicts and addresses combatant command
priorities. POAM USJFCOM undertake a review

Issue 07-003 JWFC DTT Observer/Controllers not
using JTIMS to record TPOs Discussion JWFC DTT
uses alternative protocols that do not readily
synchronize with JTIMS, creating inefficiencies
for operating forces. JWFC stated at WJTSC 06-2
that the JWFC DTT Observer / Controllers would
enter TPO comments into JTIMS as part of event
support. This did not happen for the JTF during
TERMINAL FURY 07. If qualified observers do not
enter TPO comments into JTIMS, the Training
Proficiency Evaluations that feed readiness
assessment will be diminished in value. TPO
comments were entered into JTIMS by JWFC OTs at
Talisman Saber 07 as a demonstration/test. Based
on that test, changes to JTIMS required to enable

JTIMS Update Requirement
Issue 07-019 Inconsistent updates of training
assessments in the Joint Training Information
Management System (JTIMS) Discussion JTIMS is
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. Endstate
JTIMS assessments will be synchronized with DRRS
requirements to provide a reliable, timely, and
consistent element of the system. CJCS policy
requiring periodic update of JTIMS assessment
data. POAM DRRS currently pulls TPAs from
JTIMS and displays the training assessment data
in the Training Tab of DRRS (Mission Assessment
Module). JS/J-7 is currently staffing proposed
policy language through the JSAP process which
requires periodic training assessment updates in
JTIMS. WJTSC 08-1 JTIMS currently provides the
capabilities to enter and approve assessments.
DRRS currently displays TPAs and will, in the
future, display MTAs. No additional requirements
identified for JTIMS, however, this remains an

requirements via Joint Training Information
Management System (JTIMS). Discussion USJFCOM
J3 receives and processes force requirements that
sponsoring GCCs are unable to source. Presently,
only units may be inserted and resourced via
JTIMS. Many exercises require specialty skills
(or partial staffs) that cannot be defined as a
unit. These will be referred to as Below UIC
(BUIC) level requirements. Though the current JTM
states that these requirements should be filled
via Service channels, a change has been submitted
to reflect that USJFCOM J3 will assist in
sourcing BUICs. As articulated in the Joint
Training, Policy and Guidance (CJCSI 3500.01D),
Joint Training Manual (CJCSM 3500.03B) and on JS
J7 issue slide 07-006, JTIMS is the system of
record for requesting forces. Multiple GCCs
believe that a business rule (process) should be
