The Formation of the Australian Defence Simulation and Training Centre (ADSTC) Vision to 2020 SimTecT Brief 17 Sep 13 COMMODORE C. McHARDIE 2013 Defence Simulation Environment • Australian Defence Simulation Office (ADSO) within Vice Chief Defence Force Group • Joint Combined Training Capability (JCTC) within Headquarters Joint Operations Command (HQJOC) • Simulation Offices with each Service • J7/8 (Training & Exercises) Branch within HQJOC • Training Commands within each Service • Capability Development Group – Joint Project 3035 • Simulators, training centres, ranges sustained by Defence Material Organisation • Defence Capability Programme delivering Projects with simulation assets JOINT PROJECT 3035 • JP 3028 cancelled in 2012 – focused on a wide range of simulation capability • JP 3035 emerged in 2012 • JP 3035 Phase 1 – Simulation Capability for Navy training • JP 3035 Phase 2- Core Simulation Capability • JP 3035 Phase 2 revised scope from JP 3028 JOINT PROJECT 3035 • • • • JP 3035 will deliver the core simulation enterprise services to provide the foundation upon which a Defence simulation capability can be built, and selected simulation systems to support the Services training pipelines (especially the Navy training pipeline). The JP 3035 will be focussed on the provision of enterprise services and products to support operational planning for Amphibious Operations in support of the Deployable Joint Force Headquarters (DJFHQ) and the Amphibious Ready Group (ARG) headquarters. The JP 3035 IOC will be focussed on the provision of enterprise services and products to support operational planning for Amphibious Operations in support of the Deployable Joint Force Headquarters (DJFHQ) and the Amphibious Ready Group (ARG) headquarters. The JP 3035 Phase FOC will support a wider range of military operations and options. JP 3035 will be accepted as complete when the simulation enterprise services and products required to support a persistent, integrated, distributed synthetic environment have been delivered. This environment will support Joint and Coalition collective training, mission planning, and rehearsal. Objectives of the Defence Simulation Strategy and Roadmap 2011 Changing Operational Environment • • • • • Transition from Combat Operations Introduction of complex platforms Expectation from training audience Platform sustainment cost Defence budget Drivers for Change • • • • 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 13 Defence decision to • 'create the Australian Defence Simulation Centre (ADSC) under a one star and based on the merging of ADSO and JCTC.'.... To establish the core simulation capability of a Defence Synthetic environment. Organisational changes would be enacted to support this.” • simulation direction across Defence needs a clear, positive vector into the future • Renewed focus on Training balanced against reduced Operations 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.” 03 Sep 13. ADF Training Levels • • • • • • • • Individual – military member Individual - trade skillsets Collective – work as a team Collective – unit level Collective – multiple units Joint – bring navy/army/air force together Combined – include foreign forces Joint and combined – all of the above Generates a large range of simulation needs Defence already has a significant investment Joint Combined Training Capability • Opened 23 Nov 2010 • The role of the centre is to enhance ADF force preparedness and bilateral high-end training such as supporting Mission Rehearsal Exercises (MREs) and major joint and combined exercises • The JCTC integrates live, virtual and constructive technologies, to simulate combat realism at the tactical level and stimulate command and control systems at the operational level • Based at Fyshwick in Canberra • Recent additional contracted military planning staff Bringing it all together – where needed JP 3035-2 Need A core simulation system that facilitates the provision of a challenging and complex training environment to support efficient and effective service, joint and combined collective training through a simulation environment that complements and enhances live activities Conceptual Design – JP 3035(2) Australian Defence Simulation & Training Centre Australian Defence Simulation Centre Governance, Management KMS DSE Services Data Repositories Applications Capability Coordinator Single Information Environment (SIE) Infrastructure CIO Interfaces DIGO Interfaces Geospatial Data provision Existing Simulations Ranges Training Centres New and Emerging Simulations Ranges Training Centres Services and Groups ADSTC SERVICE PROVISION ADSTC Gov Manage DSE Services DSE Apps DSE Repository DSE Comms & C2 JCTC FYSHWICK DSTO MWTC WATSON LEAD BSC Navy Army DJFHQ? JAWBC W’TOWN Air Force Commander’s Intent - ADSTC – 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 ADSC 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. – Endstate: 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.
