Abstract:

Fleet Battle Experiment K FBE K will be conducted in the spring of 2OO3, the 11th experiment in the FBE series. It will be conducted in conjunction with the USPACOM tier 1 level exercise, Tandem Thrust O3 TTO3. TTO3 is comprised of two events, a Command Post Exercise CPX and a Field Training Exercise FTX FBE K will participate in both events. As part of FBE K, many of the Experiments initiatives will focus on the command and control C2 processes centered at the joint force level. A primary goal is to apply the concepts of Network Centric Warfare NCW to the processes used to support a Joint Task Force JTF staff and a Joint Forces Air Component Commander JFACC while they are embarked aboard a Joint Fires Network JFN equipped command platform USS BLUE RIDGE LCC-19. FBE K will concentrate on the allocation reallocation of both weapons and sensors, target assignment, and fire mission deconfliction in support of the JFACC execution of Time Sensitive Targeting TST operations at the joint force and component level. FBE K will use a common set of automated tools and common system architecture aboard the USS BLUE RIDGE that enables effective TST C2 and joint task force coordination. This flexible Joint Fires Initiative C2 architecture is designed to increase the speed and tempo at which the JTF as a whole can conduct TST operations.
