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

•
•
•
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.

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.”

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

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.
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.

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.
