As the Department of Defense DOD Executive Agent for Joint Experimentation, US Joint Forces Command USJFCOM develops a broad, multi-year, iterative Campaign Plan for the Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff. The Joint Concept Development and Experimentation Campaign Plan has a fourfold purpose 1 to field the Standing Joint Force Headquarters, which includes enabling concepts for developing transformational joint command and control, 2 to deliver rapid prototyping of capabilities that improve joint warfighting now, 3 to provide actionablerecommendations based on the results of experimentation so that senior leaders can make informed choices about future investments in the armed forces, and 4 to include Combatant Commands, Services, defense agencies and multinational partners in the experimentation process. In executing this campaign, USJFCOMs strategy follows two paths the joint prototype path and the joint concept development path. The joint prototype path improves current warfighting capabilities, maturing new capabilities through continuous. The joint concept development path explores new concepts for improving future warfighting. Because the plans experimentation environment is both collaborative and distributed, USJFCOMs partners may participate at whatever level their experimental objectives require. This broad effort ensures that future warfighting capabilities are born jointly. The campaign plans products are prototype capabilities, joint concepts, and actionable recommendations for further joint experimentation. It describes the currently approved joint prototypes that support fielding the Standing Joint Force Headquarters. The plan also describes how USJFCOM develops concepts. Other campaign products include concepts describing Joint Urban Operations, Joint Forcible Entry Operations, and Joint Deployment Employment and Sustainment. This plan addresses issues for further study via the next iteration of this campaign plan.
