Pagination or Media Count:
The Defense Science Board DSB Task Force on Joint Experimentation was established to examine the joint experimentation programs and activities at the Joint Forces Command JFCOM and to recommend ways to enhance the contributions of joint experimentation to transformation. The Task Force assessed the goals, process, and substance of JFCOMs experimentation program. The Task Force also provided an external review of the Millennium Challenge 02 MC02 experiment. Specifically, the Task Force reviewed Joint Forces Commands campaign plan for joint concept development and experimentation CDE in several sessions from November 2002 to March 2003. The plan was in a state of considerable flux during this period, for example, with some changes influenced perhaps by the interim reports the Task Force provided to the Commander JFCOM and the Director of JFCOM s Joint Experimentation Directorate J9. Since the campaign plan has continued to evolve since the Task Forces exposure to it, this report does not attempt to provide a detailed evaluation. Instead, characteristics are described that would make a joint CDE campaign an effective agent for transforming U.S. military capabilities. Observations about the results of MC02 event, based on brief presentations to the Task Force, are also offered.
