The Department of Defense has identified the need for computer mediated training to assist the Department's transformation. Wexford will implement a plan that is grounded in operational, technical, and programmatic diligence to employ the Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System (JCIDS) methodology of functional needs, area, and solution analyses. This will identify capabilities, and capability gaps where cognitive skills are most relevant to a Joint Expeditionary mindset, and also lend themselves to use in simulation or distributed training. A post independent analysis and Phase II plan will be conducted. Wexford and Aptima's previous experience in this type of collaborative environment, focusing on the needs/gaps and determining how technical offerings meet the functional needs will ensure the proposed prototype solution is effective and acceptable to users.
