ISX 1.1 was conducted in the Summer 1998 in concert with the USAF Expeditionary Force Experiment EFX 98. The broad objectives of ISX 1.1 were two-fold. Substantively, ISX 1.1 was to confirm the hypothesis that information from multiple sources could be fused into engagement quality data and distributed in real time to achieve joint suppression of enemy air defenses JSEAD mission objectives against mobile medium-to-high altitude surface to air missiles SAMs. Second, since this was the first in a planned set of experiments, there was interest in deriving lessons learned to support the efficient and effective performance of future ISXs. Based on an assessment of ISX 1.1, several significant experimental successes and residual challenges have been identified. These successes include the innovative use of models, the implementation of a creative experimental design, and the data collection efforts. The major residual challenges include the difficulties in piggybacking on other experimental activities and the importance in viewing an experiment in the context of a campaign in which a variety of assessment techniques are employed e.g., model, test, model,....
