Abstract

ABSTRACT TOPIC OSD05-CR3 A Methodology and Architecture to Support Joint Training Assessment and Feedback Joint Training is rapidly becoming not only common but a required approach to preparing service elements to execute their essential missions and qualifying them to meet their Title 10 obligations. Because it necessarily involves forces from a variety of locations coordinating their training times, activities, and scenarios, joint training is a significant resource consumer within the defense budget. It is becoming evermore critical for this joint training to be effective, not only resulting in improved unit proficiency for the forces participating, but also yielding enhanced levels of capability to execute the joint tasks in the Uniform Joint Task List (UJTL). Heretofore there has not been a requirement to assess such joint exercises because they were not commonly organized or executed and when they were, it was usually after the components of the forces involved had trained to an accepted level of proficiency as separate service elements. Today we must research methods and develop tools to assess joint training and provide the participating commands and units feedback on their performance.
