3 JOINT PROJECT 3035JP 3028 cancelled in 2012 – focused on a wide range of simulation capabilityJP 3035 emerged in 2012JP 3035 Phase 1 – Simulation Capability for Navy trainingJP 3035 Phase 2- Core Simulation CapabilityJP 3035 Phase 2 revised scope from JP 3028
4 JOINT PROJECT 3035JP 3035 will deliver the core simulation enterprise services to provide the foundation upon which a Defence simulation capability can be built, and selected simulation systems to support the Services training pipelines (especially the Navy training pipeline).The JP 3035 will be focussed on the provision of enterprise services and products to support operational planning for Amphibious Operations in support of the Deployable Joint Force Headquarters (DJFHQ) and the Amphibious Ready Group (ARG) headquarters.The JP 3035 IOC will be focussed on the provision of enterprise services and products to support operational planning for Amphibious Operations in support of the Deployable Joint Force Headquarters (DJFHQ) and the Amphibious Ready Group (ARG) headquarters.The JP 3035 Phase FOC will support a wider range of military operations and options. JP 3035 will be accepted as complete when the simulation enterprise services and products required to support a persistent, integrated, distributed synthetic environment have been delivered. This environment will support Joint and Coalition collective training, mission planning, and rehearsal.

7 Drivers for Change 2011 Simulation Strategy and Roadmap Sep 11 CDF Tiger Team Report on ADF SimulationJP 3028 demise – progress on JP 3035 (Core Simulation Capability)Dec 13 Defence decision to'create the Australian Defence Simulation Centre (ADSC) under a one star and based on the merging of ADSO and JCTC.'.... To establish the core simulation capability of a Defence Synthetic environment. Organisational changes would be enacted to support this.”simulation direction across Defence needs a clear, positive vector into the futureRenewed focus on Training balanced against reduced Operations
8 As quoted by GEN Hurley, CDF: “As Service Chiefs have a raise, train and sustain responsibility so does CDF for Joint and Combined capability. The enhanced simulation organisation under the Australian Defence Simulation and Training Centre (ADSTC) is a critical enabler for the CDF to meet these preparedness responsibilities.”03 Sep 13.
9 ADF Training Levels Individual – military member Individual - trade skillsetsCollective – work as a teamCollective – unit levelCollective – multiple unitsJoint – bring navy/army/air force togetherCombined – include foreign forcesJoint and combined – all of the aboveGenerates a large range of simulation needsDefence already has a significant investment
10 Joint Combined Training Capability Opened 23 Nov 2010The role of the centre is to enhance ADF force preparedness and bilateral high-end training such as supporting Mission Rehearsal Exercises (MREs) and major joint and combined exercisesThe JCTC integrates live, virtual and constructive technologies, to simulate combat realism at the tactical level and stimulate command and control systems at the operational levelBased at Fyshwick in CanberraRecent additional contracted military planning staff
12 JP NeedA core simulation system that facilitates the provision of a challenging and complex training environment to support efficient and effective service, joint and combined collective training through a simulation environment that complements and enhances live activities

15 Commander’s Intent - ADSTC Purpose: Streamline and coordinate the Defence synthetic environment governance, development and delivery in order to provide greater effectiveness in supporting joint, collective and individual training.Method: Create an Australian Defence Simulation Centre under a dedicated one star command by merging ADSO and JCTC. The ADSC will design, develop and deliver as well as govern and run the Defence Synthetic Environment (DSE). This will be achieved by aligning Defence simulation governance, policy and all elements of the synthetic training environment through one organisation and developing the simulation architecture and standards by supporting and aligning JP delivery.Endstate: A mature systems centre capable of providing effective governance, trained simulation and exercise support workforce, applications and services that underpin a synthetic environment that supports the delivery of a challenging and complex training environment. These services are delivered in a repeatable, persistent and agile manner to the complete spectrum of Defence synthetic environment users.

21 Benefits of Implementing ADSTC introduces demonstrative core simulation capabilitiesreduces preparation overhead for major constructive exercises by introducing repositories (REPEATABLE)extends the simulation and experimentation opportunities across defence by extending ADSTC resources to the service training centres (PERSISTENT)Cradle to grave exercise design, build and execute with embedded simulation services (AGILE)Produce quick turn around on service generated simulation needs by using in house resources (AGILE)Provides baseline for coordinated coherent governance of Defence simulation IAW the DSSRDe-risks JP and other simulation components of major and minor capital projectsImplementation of the above should offer up increased capacity to deliver increased synthetic training opportunities.REPEATABLE, PERSISTENT AND AGILE
