Military operations are experiencing an increase of airspace usage which in turn increases the airspace management challenge. In response to this change, new technology and tactics, techniques and procedures TTPs are required. The Coalition Attack Guidance Experiment CAGE was designed to assess such technology and TTPs. This experiment consisted of a multinational including American Australian and Canadian operators human-in-the-loop experiment based on a simulated Afghanistan scenario all entities in the field were simulated and the participants filled Task Force Headquarters functions. A total of 33 experienced military operators participated in the experiment. The experiment provided several results of interest to support current on-going operations as well as to orient future research activities. Various technical issues with regards to the integration of systems anticipated to be part of the evolving ISAF collapsed CENTRIXS ISAF Mission Secret Network were identified. In addition, improvements provided by new technology were assessed and recommendations for TTPs to support cross-coalition fires and battlespace management were made.
