Abstract:

One of the primary training tools available to a Joint Commander in Chief for training his staff on their joint mission essential tasks is a command post exercise supported by a computer simulation model. Computer Aided Exercises CAXs are an essential part of training a component staff, however one weakness with these valuable training tools lies in the measurement of the level of training received by the players. In most CAXs the players rapidly disperse after the exercise, and little quantitative data are captured during the running of the exercise that will allow for quick post exercise analysis. This research presents a methodology for evaluating the performance of joint intelligence tasks as set forth in the Universal Joint Task List. Instead of attempting to provide individual measures for each joint intelligence task, the methodology presented focuses on the analysis of significant events that occur during an exercise and relating intelligence functions that may have contributed to the outcome of such events. Results of experimental runs of the Joint Theater Level Simulation are presented to demonstrate the methodology and the subsequent analysis process.
