4C STRATEGIES
• 4C is based in the United Kingdom & Sweden
• R&A and 4C have started a dialogue on how
JTLS & Exonaut can enhance the training effect
delivered
• 4C have decided to invest in JTLS & Exonaut
integration as part of our overall product
development plan

EXONAUT BASICS
Exonaut is an training & exercise management system that
support CAX (and non-CAX training) from the scheduling phase
to the evaluation phase…
• Challenge we saw 2000
• Basics
− Reuse exercise data
between exercises
− Coordinate scenario/plan
documents information
between up to 400
concurrent users
Navigating uncertainty
• Developed since 2000 (v6)
• Server – Client software
(stand-alone operation is
also possible)
• Web or Mobile enabled
• Multi-Lingual

• Fusion exercise plan
and simulation data
• Track workflow
throughout EXCON
• Plan scenario
(MEL/MIL)
• Control EXCON
activities
• Analyze training
events
• Generate an
asymetrical scenario
• Compare scenario
data with TA reported
data to allow AAR
• Analyze “2-function”
assessments
• Identify training risk
• Track training
objectives for units
• Observe units
performance during
training
• Can automatically
aggregate reports on
performance

4C EXPERIENCE FROM CAX
• Challenge
− Constructive simulation can
be found abstract by
commanders?
− Simulation is sometimes left
”on the sidelines” of the
planning
R&A & 4C Assumption:
Sharing information will
− Simulation bring unique
createto an
1 +1 = 3 situation
consequence
training
• Value
− Exercise Management bring
better coordination /
workflow

JTLS & EXONAUT INTEGRATION IDEA
- INTEGRATED EXERCISE MANAGEMENT
• Copy and paste
− Saved 50% time during planning of Div. size exercise scenario
− Scenario repositories
• We had an enhanced realism with Exonaut
integrated
− less ”forced interaction” with 30% during exercise day 3-8
compared to previous exercises
• The Training Progression audit trail give invaluable
input to future training
− Before training commanders can go through previous
experiences related to the objectives they are to train on

OUR WAY FORWARD
• Integration discussions
with R&A
• Focus on the user
− “Plug and Play” modules
(2012-2014)
− AAR using a fusion of JTLS
data and Exonaut captured
AAR data
− Flexibility in information
creation (support different
scenario structures)
