UNCLASSIFIED 2 Agenda Joint Capability Development USJFCOM Commander’s C2 Vision C2 Capability Portfolio Management Joint Close Air Support (JCAS) Digital Data Standards and Interoperability Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) Training
UNCLASSIFIED 3 Advancing warfighter effectiveness and improving combat capability Recommend changes in Doctrine, Organization, Training, Material, Leadership & education, Personnel, Facilities and Policy (DOTMLPF-P) Integrating and synchronizing Joint warfighting capabilities to promote interoperability Coordinate Joint Standards and Requirements with Combatant Commanders, Services, Agencies, and Multinational Mission Partners Examples of Joint Capability Development: US & Coalition Blue Force Tracking & Combat ID Joint Precision Air Drop System (JPADS) Machine Foreign Language Translation Joint Capability Development ◄ Interoperable from the Outset Capability Provided
UNCLASSIFIED 4 C2 Support for Decision-Making “Leader-Centric… Net-Enabled” What this is about… Command and Control – fundamentally a human endeavor Operational art – beyond the science Assured information that builds knowledge and speeds decision-making Reliable systems and tested processes Distributed information; relevant knowledge – allowing decentralized execution Decision cycles inside the enemy’s ability to adapt Elements of the C2 Vision, DoD C2 Strategic and Implementation Plan Coherent Unambiguous Collaborative Coordinated Net-Enabled Ops Technical Integration JFC & JTF HQ Emphasize Human Dimension Strengthened Partnerships Policy Joint / Coalition Integration Training & Education Leader-centric… network-enabled
UNCLASSIFIED 5 Capability Portfolio Management “Focus on capability-based planning and management efforts to better enable strategic choice and improve ability to make capability tradeoffs” --Quadrennial Defense Review ’06 Four initial capability areas selected: – Command and Control (C2) – Net-Centric Operations (NC) – Battlespace Awareness (BA) – Logistics (L) C2 CPM Goals – Improve interoperability and maximize effectiveness – Minimize capability redundancies & gaps – Harmonize DoD’s decision support processes for requirements, acquisition and programming of C2 capability solutions USJFCOM Commander is DoD’s Military Lead for C2 CPM – Joint Capability Developer delegated his C2 CPM execution arm Assess, Coordinate, Manage & Integrate Requirements PPBE Acquisition JCM PPBE JCM PPBE CPM PPBE JCM PPBE JCM PPBE CPM PPBE JCM PPBE JCM PPBE CPM PPBE JCM PPBE JCM Programming $ CPM
UNCLASSIFIED 6 Joint Fires Integration and Interoperability Holistic approach to improving Joint Fires –Target Acquisition –Command and Control –Firing Systems –Enhance combat effectiveness while reducing fratricide and collateral damage Capability Improvements –Joint Tactics, Techniques & Procedures development –Doctrine refinement –Interoperability recommendations – Joint Training Plan recommendations – Feedback to exercise participants Training Improvements Improving Joint fires…reducing fratricide and collateral damage
UNCLASSIFIED 7 JCAS Digital Data Exchange Standard Reduced fratricide potential –Fewer human errors associated with manually copying 9-line data –Increased situational awareness (SA) of friendly force positions –Higher percentage of first-run target ID Reduced Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) workload –Software automation allows rapid, accurate creation and storing of multiple digital 9-lines Increased effectiveness –Digital collaboration reduces time required to build shared SA –Service more targets within same time frame Task: Coordinate & synchronize implementation strategy - influence POM 10
UNCLASSIFIED 8 Digitally-Aided CAS Interoperability – Today AFAPD = Air Force Applications Program Development AFATDS = Advanced Field Artillery Tactical Data System ASOC = Air Support Operations Center CoT = Cursor-on-Target (Transport Layer/Header) JSOTF =Joint Special Operations Task Force MTS = Marine Tactical System SADL = Situational Awareness Data Link SINGCARS = Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System Unclassified
UNCLASSIFIED 9 Digitally-Aided CAS Way Ahead JCAS Executive Steering Committee endorsed Variable Message Format (VMF) over Combat Net Radio (CNR) as near- term digitally-aided CAS standard Establish DoD-level Configuration Control Board Link16, Situational Awareness Data Link (SADL) and Air Force Applications Program Development (AFAPD) remain important tools for the JTAC and CAS community –Key Tenet = “Do No Harm to the Warfighter” USAF’s ASOC and Objective Gateway programs will allow players to share certain information, mainly target coordinates and elevation, across these standards
UNCLASSIFIED 10 Digitally-Aided CAS Interoperability – 2012 AFAPD = Air Force Applications Program Development AFATDS = Advanced Field Artillery Tactical Data System ASOC = Air Support Operations Center CoT = Cursor-on-Target (Transport Layer/Header) DASC = Direct Air Support Center JSOTF =Joint Special Operations Task Force SADL = Situational Awareness Data Link VMF = Variable Message Format (Parser/Transport Layer/Header) Unclassified
UNCLASSIFIED 11 Digitally-Aided CAS Interoperability – 2013/14 DASC = Direct Air Support Center JFO = Joint Fires Observer JETS = Joint Effects Targeting System

UNCLASSIFIED 13 Recap USJFCOM J8, Joint Capability Developer Improving the way DoD… – Executes capabilities-based management – Makes informed strategic investment decisions – Brings Joint Warfighter advocacy to C2 – Develops, tests, and delivers synchronized C2 – Fields comprehensive, integrated capability “Interoperable from the outset” Evolutionary in its development..... Transformational in its impact Evolutionary in its development..... Transformational in its impact
