Issue 08-018: The enhancement of ACGU Joint, Combined, Multilateral training in order to increase operational capability, preparedness, and improve interoperability.
Discussion: No formal procedure exists for scheduling and coordinating ACGU Joint Combined and Multilateral training and use of the full range of Live Virtual Constructive (LVC) training capabilities. An ACGU working group (WG), including Combatant Commands and JS J7, needs to be established to draft agreement(s), develop business rules, and identify/develop the appropriate forum for coordination. The WG will use the PACOM-AUS Joint Combined Training Capability (JCTC) work as a starting point. Formal business rules will require a long term effort, but short term efforts will continue to leverage existing multilateral venues.
Endstate: Defense level policy guidance, and agreements. A formal coordination process, business rules and/or other documents as necessary for ACGU partners and combatant commands/Services that outlines the process for scheduling and coordinating bi-lateral and multilateral training and exercises enhanced via LVC enablers using ACGU networks. Short term endstate will address OIF/OEF pre-deployment training. Long term solution expected to take several years.
