5 JIE Working Definition
UNCLASSIFIED JIE Working Definition JIE is a secure joint information environment, comprised of shared information technology (IT) infrastructure, enterprise services, and a single security architecture to achieve full spectrum superiority, improve mission effectiveness, increase security and realize IT efficiencies. JIE is operated and managed per Unified Command Plan (UCP) using enforceable standards, specifications, and common tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs). 32 Desired Network Characteristics 7 Network Characteristics to Avoid Service consensus on definition and characteristics

6 UNCLASSIFIED Joint M&S Way-Ahead Change Catalysts Many Factors Driving Significant Change to Joint M&S Development ($, OSD Direction, DoD IT Enterprise Guidance, Operational Relevance, etc.) Current State JLVC 5.X (Latest Release of JLVC) = Pretty Good, But Evolutionary Approach w/ Federated & Integrated Service/Joint Simulations Too Complex & Costly Last of Breed JLVC 6.0 Releases End of FY13; JLVC 6.X By FY15 Future of Joint M&S Cloud-Enabled Modular Services (CEMS) Framework (JLVC2020) JLVC2020 New Joint M&S Training Enabler (Fully Mission Capable by FY19), Which Will: Cost Less and Be Less Complex to Operate Be Discoverable & More Accessible to the Warfighter (Designed for the Cloud) Comply w/ DoD Enterprise IT Direction Enhance Warfighter’s Training Environment (i.e., Cyber, Hybrid Threat, Missile Defense, etc.) Support Continuum of Training Fidelity Requirements Funding $75M +/- of DoD Funding is Planned for JLVC2020 from FY14-FY18 Priority It Will Be the J7’s Signature Joint M&S Development Effort Backup Plan Can’t Afford One—Circa FY15, Joint Training Context Will Rely on a Rapidly Decaying JLVC 6.X (Likely 2+ Years of Use Prior to Decay Issues) Until JLVC2020 Delivers Risk Mitigation Lots of Leadership Review Planned—If Problems Can Produce a JLVC 7.0 Within 1 Year & Would Incorporate Best of Breed From JLVC2020 Development (i.e., Data Services, etc.)

7 JLVC-2020 (Operational) Apps Interface App Store Data
Major Components Data – Interface - “Apps” -“App Store” OSD Partnership via MSCO Rapid Data Generation Project Geospatial Data Correlation Force Development Mission Process Modeling in Virtual Environments Priority of Effort Modular service specification Data service broker prototype Data management schema What is Different? Apps have to work together Must deliver at speed of need Must deliver at point of need Open source development App Store Agile, Composable, Tailorable Efficient 1) [Data Source and Repository] Modern military simulations use distributed "Data Driven Simulations" where each new event is supported with data customized to build the environment and scenario needed for training. The foundation for producing a simulation event is to access many sources of authoritative data which is then collected, correlated and fused together then stored in formats compatible with the simulations to be used. We are partnering with MSCO to accomplish a high level task to get to this correlated data layer. 2) [Data Server and Services] The computer simulation environment needs networked computers to run on and tools to operate and manage this distributed environment. We design the backbone computing network, cloud and conventional, that will host the data servers and all the services and tools that will be required to control the event. The key to this is the interface specifications to the other layers – a high speed specification which will be developed with this project, and a link to the legacy systems (HLA 1516 Enhanced) which will allow interoperability between old and new until full capability is achieved. 3) [Environment layer] We use the resource repository data to build the simulated environment - the computer representation of the time, place, and weather and the simulated forces that will make up the event. Any given event will have a specific environment which can be customized and saved in the runtime database. This can be shifted, expanded, or modified as needed during the event. 4) [Wargaming layer] Depending on the training requirements, the event designers select from a large number of simulation models, tools, and services that will provide all the required interactions needed to support the training objectives. Some of these modules will be relatively low fidelity to provide the basic interactions required, while more specific interactions may be exceedingly high fidelity. We plan to build many of the basic services to achieve Joint operations, while the Services will want greater fidelity and we plan to leverage their intellectual capital to get that higher fidelity. 5) [Interface layer] The event designers select from a range of interface options to enable the communication options between the simulations, the training staff, and the training audience. 6) [SMT & VTI] Just like there are tools & services to operate the distributed network of computers and design the event, there are also tools and services for the trainers to manage the event while it is running to steer the simulation event as required to meet all the training objectives. Event control includes not only the simulation run, but the proper 'road to war' buildup to set the scene and after action review tools to capture and enhance the learning process. We are leveraging MSCO HLTs to get at these capabilities as well as other JDIR efforts (J6, J8). 7) [Training Audience] Finally, M&S data is fed from the simulation environment into the operational environment and delivered to the training audience whether they are in virtual simulators, live forces operating on ranges or personnel in front of their C2 systems, receiving input just as they would in a real crisis. This C2 environment has to include portals , not just a C2PC or CPOF box because the portal is the staff entry point for most staff action.
