This project report describes a proposed foundation for a system-of-systems training architecture that closes gaps in the Navys current strike group training processes to more effectively train and support warfighters in the execution of a webfires concept. Todays fleet training systems lack the capability and capacity to provide adequate integrated training that leverages the necessary high-velocity learning expected of future warfighters who will employ and implement the webfires concept in the next 10 to 15years. The current training processes and systems fail to provide sufficient hardwaresoftware integration, training repetition, and performance feedback necessary to prepare warfighters to employ webfires against a near-peer threat. This report details requirements that a future training system should possess to fill gaps in the Navys current training process and align it with the Optimized Fleet Response Plan. It contains actionable recommendations for stakeholders and identifies key technology development areas that will enable a future webfires system. This reports recommendations will improve the way the Navy conducts fleet training and will create a competitive advantage in the maritime environment.
