Abstract:

Joint tactical interoperability requires a well organized and integrated approach to joint training. Despite several needed structural changes in joint command relationships and staffing effected by the 1986 Defense Reorganization Act, joint interoperability problems continue to occur. A broad overview of the current status of joint training and interoperability will provide a background for possible improvements to joint training programs. The services, in concert with the Joint Chiefs of Staff, can maximize joint capabilities through a systematic effort aimed at true operational integration. Such a program would simultaneously promote increased tactical level joint training and education, refine and enhance joint officer personnel programs and effectively disseminate lessons learned from both joint and single service operations.
