2011 Simulation Strategy and Roadmap
Sep 11 CDF Tiger Team Report on ADF Simulation
JP 3028 demise – progress on JP 3035 (Core Simulation Capability)
Dec 12
• 'proposal to create the Australian Defence Simulation Centre
(ADSC) under a one star and based on the merging of ADSO
and JCTC.'....
• ‘establish the core simulation capability of a Defence Synthetic
environment. Organisational changes would be enacted to
support this.’
• Mar 13
– ‘CDF (directed to ADSO/JCTC) to merge under HQJOC’
• simulation direction across Defence needs a clear, positive vector into
the future
Objectives of the Defence Simulation Strategy and
Roadmap 2011
Commander’s Intent
– Purpose: Streamline and coordinate the Defence synthetic
environment governance, development and delivery in order
to provide greater effectiveness in supporting joint, collective
and individual training.
– Method: Create an Australian Defence Simulation Centre
under a dedicated one star command by merging ADSO and
JCTC. The ADSTC will design, develop and deliver as well as
govern and run the Defence Synthetic Environment (DSE).
This will be achieved by aligning Defence simulation
governance, policy and all elements of the synthetic training
environment through one organisation and developing the
simulation architecture and standards by supporting and
aligning JP 3035-2 delivery.
ADSTC Vision
• The realisation of a mature systems
centre capable of providing effective
governance, trained simulation and
exercise support workforce,
applications and services that underpin
a synthetic environment that supports
the delivery of a challenging and
complex training environment. These
services are delivered in a repeatable,
persistent and agile manner to the
complete spectrum of Defence
synthetic environment users.
As quoted by GEN Hurley, CDF:
“As Service Chiefs have a raise, train and
sustain responsibility so does CDF for
Joint and Combined capability. The
enhanced simulation organisation under
the Australian Defence Simulation and
Training Centre (ADSTC) is a critical
enabler for the CDF to meet these
preparedness responsibilities.”

Future Joint Collective Training Environment
• Training distributed to point of need
• Compelling and engaging for digital natives
• Reduce platform sustainment costs
• Keeps pace with the rapidly changing
operating environment to meet joint
preparedness
• Align with CIOG strategic direction
• Simulation complements and enhances live
activities
• Supports operational test and evaluation –
feedback to capability development

Benefits of Implementing ADSTC
– introduces demonstrative core simulation capabilities
– reduces preparation overhead for major constructive
exercises by introducing repositories (REPEATABLE)
– extends the simulation and experimentation opportunities
across defence by extending ADSTC resources to the service
training centres (PERSISTENT)
– Cradle to grave exercise design, build and execute with
embedded simulation services (AGILE)
– Produce quick turn around on service generated simulation
needs by using in house resources (AGILE)
– Provides baseline for coordinated coherent governance of
Defence simulation IAW the DSSR
– De-risks JP 3035-2 and other simulation components of major
and minor capital projects
– Implementation of the above should offer up increased
capacity to deliver increased synthetic training opportunities.
REPEATABLE, PERSISTENT AND AGILE
Synthetic Environment Working Group
•
The Synthetic Environment Working Group (SEWG) was
established IAW with the Ministerial EWG direction;
– transferred to VCDF Group on 5 Jul 11
– transferred to JOC Group on 23 Sep 13
•
The first SEWG was held on 18 Mar 10 with 45 attendees, six
additional SEWGS have been held:

In 2012 as a result of growth in SEWG membership, currently
recorded as 406 individuals representing 184 companies, the
Co-Chair responsibilities were split into three areas:
– Local SME
• Mr Alan Rankin Chairman AIDN
– Not-for Profit and Academic
• Ms Alisha Fisher, CEO Simulation Australia
– International
• Mr John Ilgen, Senior Vice President Northrup Grumman
Integration with the SEWG
•
•
•
Hosting of SEWG has transferred from VCDF Gp to JOC
Representation in the SEWG continues to grow and the multiple cochair concept has been successful;
On top of standard Defence Simulation Users updates recent
SEWGs have acted as the conduit of communication for:
–
–
–
–
•
Changes to export control;
Army Plan Beersheba;
DMO Smart Sustainment initiatives; and
Local Serious Games Industry opportunities.
The next SEWG, 17 Apr 14, will include:
–
Service simulation offices updates;
•

–
–
Army Simulation Strategy;
Air Force Joint Air Warfare Battlelab;
Navy Triton Sim and SEA 3035-1
An update on ADSTC developments;
