JEFX 2004 also will experiment with new ways to track and identify forces, and share that information.
Following JEFX 2004, the Air Force will pursue those capabilities deemed "good enough" by war fighters.
Some of the aspects of the scenario have been optimized heavily towards the air battle, which is not surprising because 10 of the 13 individual experiments in JEFX
08-3 have been Air Force experiments, a lot of them to do with targeting and the procedures to manage multiple different sources of target information.
"What we're here for in JEFX
is to start integrating with the Air Force at the infancy of FCS," said Steinhebel.
He served as the joint force air and space component commander during the Air Force war-fighting experiment conducted this summer, known as JEFX 2002.
The JEFX command air operations center, or CAOC, at Nellis Air Force Base, Nev., became the test bed fur several new technologies that Hobbins said will help "transform" the way air operations are planned and implemented.
JEFX 08-3, held from April 14-25, is part of the JEFX 08 series of related Air Force-sponsored experiments focusing on network command and control operations.
The Navy's participation in JEFX 08-3 is aimed to develop and refine the MHQ w/MOC processes in relation to other tactical C2 centers.
