Assessing the challenge

BY Christopher J. Dorobek

Sept. 23, 2002
Weeks after the end of the battle, analysts are still assessing what
went right and what still needs work. But those analysts are not looking
at what happened in Afghanistan. 

Instead they are reviewing the results of the Defense Department's most
extensive experiment - Millennium Challenge 2002. 

DOD doctrine, training policy and organization "are going to be impacted
by this experiment like nothing else we've ever done," said Air Force
Gen. Richard Myers, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, during a
briefing at the Joint Forces Command training facility. 

The experiment was conducted from July 24 through Aug. 15 and involved
more than 13,500 military personnel and the largest computer simulation
ever built. 

The goal of the "experiment," as the exercise was called, was to test
how systems operate jointly so they can support ground, sea and air
forces, officials said. 

"As with any experiment, there are some things that worked really well
and some things that didn't work at all," said Chris Shepherd, team
leader for the Standing Joint Force headquarters, which staged the
Millennium Challenge. 

A critical issue that the Millennium Challenge sought to test was the
concept of creating a permanent standing joint force headquarters that
would enable forces to be ready for deployment more quickly than they
are now.

The proposed standing joint force headquarters would collect data about
potential adversaries so that U.S. forces would know more about the
enemy than the enemy forces know about themselves.

The standing forces would provide military leaders with an immediate
understanding of the opposition, Shepherd said. 

The goal is to reduce the ad hoc way DOD performs planning today, he

The experiment was also able to illustrate the effectiveness of a
collaborative information environment that links all of the planners,
Shepherd said. 

During the exercise, the joint tactical force commander was able to
conduct a meeting with all of his component commanders - a total of some
700 staff members. "There was no ambiguity as to the commander's
intention" because the staff officers had listened to the commander
themselves, he said. 

The exercise demonstrated that "effects-based operations" had potential,
but that important areas need further honing. Effects-based operations
enable forces to target a specific infrastructure in order to carry out
the desired effect. But to carry out that degree of precision, it
requires even more data about the enemy - necessitating further

Finally, the Millennium Challenge demonstrated that DOD's information
operations have a long way to go before they can be used effectively,
officials said. Information operations include virtual warfighting or
even something as simple as blanketing an enemy with leaflets.

The Joint Forces Command expects to complete its analysis of the
Millennium Challenge 2002 experiment by February 2003.
