1 Joint Exercises of the Future The overall classification is UNCLASSIFIED
2 Future Joint Operating Environment UNCLASSIFIED “The next quarter century will challenge U.S. joint forces with threats and opportunities ranging from regular and irregular wars in remote lands to relief and reconstruction in crisis zones, to cooperative engagements in the global commons.” (The JOE 2010) Strategic Response: Mission ready joint forces for critical worldwide contingency operations.
3 Extracts from Current Strategic Guidance Training Implications Sustaining U.S. Global Leadership: Priorities For 21 st Century Defense –“Transitions Our Defense Enterprise From An Emphasis On Today’s Wars To Preparing For Future Challenges, Protects The Broad Range Of U.S. National Security Interests –“A Blueprint For The Joint Force In 2020” –“Working With Allies And Partners To Establish Control Over Ungoverned Territories..” –“While U.S. Military Will Continue To Contribute To Security Globally, We Will Of Necessity Rebalance Toward The Asia-Pacific Region” Turning Point – Implications Of New Strategic Guidance For CE2 –“All Combatant Commands Exercise And Engagement Programs Must Strive For Strategically Aligned Global Effects Rather Than Being Strictly Regionally Focused” –(LtGen Flynn’s Guidance ” “Linking CCMDs Exercises”) CE2T2 Program Goals And Objectives (PGO) –“Ensure Joint Training, Exercises, And Engagement Activities Promote Capabilities And Training That Typify Joint Operations, Institutionalizes The Lessons Learned Over The Last Decade Of Operations” –Refocus As We Transition From Operations In Iraq And Afghanistan To A Broader, Global Strategy
4 Focus Areas for Training CE2T2 PGO Train Irregular Warfare Threats (Counterterrorism, Unconventional Warfare, Foreign Internal Defense, Counterinsurgency & Stability Operations.) Train Operations to Deter and Defeat Aggression Enhance Integration With Partners Strengthen Security and Resilience at Home Improve Capabilities for Cyber, Space, and Information Operations Enhance Unit and Individual Adaptivity Improve our Ability to Train Realistically and Efficiently
5 Joint Training Support and Emerging Enhancements
Senior Mentor, Observer Trainers –Over-the-shoulder coaching –Facilitated after action review (FAAR) –Commander’s summary report Relevant Operational Environment –Incorporates PMESII/ASCOPE Comprehensive Approaches –Robust multinational, whole-of-government interaction, e.g., DEA, USAID, Red Cross, Treasury, Coalition, host nations, NGO, private sector –Worldwide News Network Products (WNN) –Adversarial Media Products Foreign News Network Threat propaganda products –Strategic Communication Key leader engagements Interactions w/local religious, social, political, and military leadership –OPFOR (Multidimensional and Free Thinking) Joint Training Support Exercise ProgramExercise Program –Computer-assisted, Master Scenario Event List driven events focusing on Commander’s Training Objectives for complex operations unclassified
DD JS J7, Joint and Coalition Warfighting Emerging OPFOR Capabilities OPFOR support to CCMDs provided by USJFCOM and JCW traditionally focused primarily on depiction of adversary’s tactical forces using modeling/simulation JCW developing enhanced capability to facilitate the design, planning, and execution of a wider array of OPFOR options, ranging from scripted adversary to a dynamic, free-thinking adversary Recently provided robust OPFOR support to major USCENTCOM exercise Dynamic, free-thinking, and competitive OPFOR Depicted full range of adversary’s capabilities, Strategic to tactical, lethal and non-lethal (to include cyber, space, EW, etc.) More than just military --- also depicted diplomatic, informational, and economic capabilities of adversary OPFOR’s used all means to defeat training audience, but still under JECG and exercise director’s control to ensure appropriate restraint Subject matter experts from DIA, NASIC, ONI, NGIC, CIA, CYBERCOM, etc. ensured accurate depiction of adversary’s capabilities Coordinate OPFOR support through JCW LNO or Desk Officer UNCLASSIFIED
Collective Training & Regional Security Cooperation Network (RSCN) Shifting the Emphasis Program Description and Guidance: Way Ahead:Status / Way Ahead: A priority goal of the RSCN program is to designate resources to improve interoperability between U.S. and foreign militaries and to enhance regional security cooperation. Strategic Guidance and CE2T2 Program Goals & Objectives provide the guidance and focus areas for the program. JS J-7 JCW provides the CCMDs an exercise and engagement enabling capability for Security Cooperation exercise support. This capability includes dedicated Gov / Mil event planner / ADL support and fiscal resources. Note that rest of FY 12 and FY 13 will allow for requirements definition & program ramp-up, depending on maturity of CCMD events. CCMDs decide if they want to use this capability. Provide proposal through JS J-7 JCW desk officer / JS J- 7 LNO. Specify level of support required (e.g. Technical / M&S; Exercise Design; MSEL; WNN; Public Affairs Spt; AAR). EUCOMCENTCOMSOUTHCOMAFRICOMPACOM “AS IS”-SEESIM -Viking -LOGEX Regional Cooperatio n 000 “TO BE”-1 Exercise RC New Event New Event EUCOM: EUCOM would need to decide which exercise it desires JCW to support (e.g. LOGEX) or some other event CENTCOM: CENTCOM receives support for two events, Regional Cooperation and 1 new event (CENTCOM weighted because of on-going operations) SOUTHCOM and AFRICOM: Receive support for 1 event each PACOM: Receives support for 1 event beginning FY 14 and second event in FY 15 after VIKING 14 executes. (PACOM weighed IAW Chairman’s priority) UNCLASSIFIED 13 Mar 12 - Support will generally be decided using existing CE2 business rules. - Proposals for exercise support will need to show linkage to OSD Defense Priorities for regional multinational engagement and be in concert with RSCN program goals.

Now UNCLASSIFIED Missions OE – Defines the exercise environment for UE and selected CCMD exercises. Prepares written documents and briefings explaining the JIPOE with a focus on BLUE, GREEN, and GREY elements, locations, and actions for the training audience. Scenario – Defines the exercise environment and road to crisis for CCMD exercises. Develops briefings and documents to assist the JECG in development of scripted inputs and provide the training audience a starting point for exercise execution. Data may be based on real-world information or may be crafted to support a fictitious scenario, depending on the event. AtN – Defines specific groups, networks, and cells to be used in UE and selected CCMD exercises. Creates documents and briefings to show the means, methods, and linkage of RED entities. Information is used to support other JECG storylines, AtN network and C-IED storylines, OE environment laydown, scenario development, and OPFOR operations. OPFOR – Establishes and inputs OB, manages and operates M&S systems, maneuvers RED, GREEN, and GREY forces, and provides subject matter expertise on RED and BLUE weapons systems and TTP in support of UE and CCMD exercises. Provides direct support to all JECG elements in order to implement their injects and achieve training objectives.
To Be UNCLASSIFIED Missions Exercise Environment – Defines the exercise environment and road to crisis. Prepares written documents and briefings explaining the JIPOE with a focus on BLUE, GREEN, GREY and RED elements, locations, and actions. Provides detailed information on RED organization, TTP, objectives, goals, means, methods, linkage, strengths, and weaknesses. Products support the JECG during exercise development and in establishing a starting point for the training audience. Employed at varying degrees for factual and fictitious scenario events, depending on the CCMD and exercise objectives. (Includes elements of OE, Scenario, AtN) OPFOR – Plans, leads, and manages all counter-BLUE forces in order to achieve training objectives and/or provide a challenge to CCMD leadership. Level and method of employment depend on the CCMD requirements, exercise focus and design, and CCMD staff capability. Options range from M&S centric events focusing on support to pre-scripted storylines, to inclusion of a flexible/maneuverable force, to an independent enemy capable of achieving victory. Can depict strategic to tactical threat capabilities, and apply all elements of the DIME construct to challenge the training audience. Also replicates and includes aspects of cultural, societal, human-terrain, and inter-personal network linkages to accurately replicate threat groups across the spectrum of conflict from peace keeping operations to counter-insurgency, to conventional war. (Includes elements of OPFOR, AtN)
