
“Big Ticket Items” - Cross-cutting, AF-wide efforts to reduce or
eliminate unnecessary duplication/redundancies, and increase
readiness efficiencies and fiscal savings

LVC-OT – The framework and art of tailoring and integrating the
optimum mix of live, virtual and constructive capabilities to meet
warfighter readiness training requirements

Centralized Foundational Management (CFM) - “User-friendly”
oversight of LVC-OT integrating infrastructure, enterprise
communication solutions and workforce development

Centralized Event Management (CEM) - Orchestration of crosscutting/common LVC-OT resources for major events

Air Force Continuous Training Environment (AFCOTE) - The AF’s
LVC-OT Integrating (“Transport”) Infrastructure

Integrating Architecture for Air and Space LVC Environments
(IA-ASLVCE)
• What’s been done
• Capability Based Analysis (CBA) – ID’ed gaps in:
• LVC environments, architecture, workforce and oversight
• Joint Requirement Oversight Council (JROC) approved Initial Capability
Document (ICD)
• Authoritative requirement document
• JROC interest, potential ACAT-1AM program
Transport
Space
• What’s next for this year
• Material Development Decision (MDD)
• Analysis of Alternatives (AoA)
A Joint effort to identify and address foundational LVC integration issues for the air
and space domains

LVC-OT Centralized Foundational/Event Management
(CFM/CEM)
• Why ?
• Status-quo will most likely not be affordable
• AF Modeling and Simulation General Officer Steering Group orders:
• Implement centralized foundational management
• Investigate centralized event management
• Solution – Air Force Continuous Operational Training Environment
(AFCOTE)
LVC-OT Centralized Foundational/Event Management
(CFM/CEM)
IS
IS NOT
…a readily available capability to conduct
integrated/distributed LVC events.
…a new network that has all LVC
components persistently connected.
…a time/resource saver.
…a usurp of AF Organizations’
responsibilities to organize, train and equip.
…information assurance
(certification/accreditation) efficient.
…a new concept.

Here’s What the Warfighter Requires
Essential to support the Joint Force Commander in achieving military objectives by
LVC Environments
A persistent, agile, trustworthy,
robust, manageable, organized and
integrated LVC environments.
Informed Organizing
“Enabling the ability to determine the appropriate
application of force to dominate the operational
environment.”
LVC Architecture
An integrated, interoperable and
quality architecture that enables
persistency.
Realistic Training
“Providing the warfighter the ability to experience
the operation in a sufficiently realistic
environment prior to the actual operation.”
LVC Workforce
An agile and trustworthy M&S LVC
workforce.
Validated Equipping
“Instilling confidence in how systems will
perform in current and future mission
environments.”
LVC Oversight
Ensuring compliance, improving
understanding, and strengthening
trustworthy, reliable and effective
relationships for Joint integrating
architecture policies and standards.
Effective Employment
“Knowing the capabilities and limitations of the
force to execute operational requirements, and
adjusting TTPs to execute evolving operational
missions.”
Joint Requirement and Oversight Council Approved and Validated Requirements:
