Abstract:

Fleet Battle Experiment Juliet FBE-J is the tenth FBE to be conducted since 1997. The two major areas of experimentation for FBE-J were Sea-based Joint Forces Maritime Command and Control JFMCC, and Assured Access. FBE-J was an opportunity to experiment with JFMCC across all maritime warfare areas in a difficult littoral environment. The experiments were conducted from 24 July to 15 August 2002 in the U.S. western sea and land ranges. FBE-J used a mix of live and simulated activities to examine operational and tactical warfighting issues in a real environment. There were periods during the experiment when FBE-J operated independent of the joint environment. At such times, Navy simulation provided Red-Force activities. At the service level, simulation was used to examine systems that did not yet exist, to fill out orders of battle, and to determine effects due to force numbers. Specific FBE-J activities were as follows refine the roles, functions, and planning process for the Joint Force Maritime Component Commander refine C4ISR and support for a sea-based Joint Force Commander develop innovative solutions to the seams between forward-based forces and rear-echelon forces through innovative networking provide field-tested Naval Fires Network TACMEMO for fleet use refine the concepts of employment for distributed, networked, manned, and unmanned platforms, and remote sensors, for anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare, and mine warfare examine multi-mission pull and joint C2 of Navy Theater Ballistic Missile Defense capable units examine coordination from theater ASW commander to local ASW commander in integrating unmanned sensors and platforms with manned sensors and platforms examine joint tactical packages to counter a swarming small boat threat refine concepts of employment for organic and dedicated mine warfare forces in assured access mission and integrate kinetic and non-kinetic engagement options to develop computer network defense CONOP7
