An integrated, interoperable and quality architecture that enables persistency.
An agile and trustworthy M&S LVC workforce.
Ensuring compliance, improving understanding, and strengthening trustworthy, reliable and effective relationships for Joint integrating architecture policies and standards.
“Instilling confidence in how systems will perform in current and future mission environments.”
“Enabling the ability to determine the appropriate application of force to dominate the operational environment.”
“Providing the warfighter the ability to experience the operation in a sufficiently realistic environment prior to the actual operation.”
