Abstract
A new emphasis on increased joint operations requires a transformation in the way we train our troops. Training must teach our forces to both think and act jointly. As part of this initiative, the Joint National Training Capability (JNTC) is being developed in order to enhance training for our service branches, and interagency and multinational coalition partners by integrating live, virtual, and constructive (LVC) training environments. Clearly, the technological infrastructure required for large-scale distributed training events is significant, and the implementation of such an infrastructure represents an important step toward the actualization of effective distributed training for the joint community. However, by itself, simulation technology does not ensure effective training. True training requires a thorough identification of training objectives, reliable and valid performance measures that can determine whether or not those objectives have been met, and feedback to the trainees to assist their learning. Thus, there is a clear need for enhanced performance measurement and assessment capabilities in LVC environments. We propose to develop the Joint Measurement Operations Controller (J-MOC). J-MOC will include components that (1) configure a measurement collection plan (2) coordinate collection and storage of measurement data, and (3) display assessment results using mechanisms that support learning.
