"Thor's Hammer" experiment wraps up

By USJFCOM Public Affairs

(SUFFOLK, VA. -- March 16, 2004) - U.S. Joint Forces Command (USJFCOM)
recently co-sponsored a weeklong space simulation experiment that
how agencies work together to share information across boundaries as
well as
how various future operating concepts including the National Security
concept work together in diverse environments.

Working together with the U.S. Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM), U.S.
Operations Command (USSOCOM), and the National Reconnaissance Office
the space simulation experiment, dubbed "Thor's Hammer," used elements
the USJFCOM-developed Joint Interagency Coordination Group (JIACG) to
facilitate information exchange in pre-conflict scenarios.

The JIACG acts as a multi-functional, advisory element that represents
civilian departments and non-military agencies. During Thor's Hammer,
focus was to illustrate improved information sharing and working
relationships between civilian and military organizations.

According to USJFCOM's Thor's Hammer organizers, the event represents
tremendous strides toward applying and extending a common joint context
an interagency setting. "We get all of the elements of national power
all the agencies that employ these elements not only working in a
joint fashion but in a coherently interagency fashion," said Dave
assistant director for concept development and experimentation at the
command's Joint Experimentation Directorate.

"While the analysts are still reviewing the game's results, Thor's
will yield important exploration areas for future concept development,"
according to Navy Cmdr. Mike Taylor, the joint experimentation action
officer responsible for planning and coordinating JFCOM's participation
Thor's Hammer.

In addition to providing a joint context for the game, USJFCOM also
key support facilities in the Suffolk-based Distributed Continuous
Experimentation Environment (DCEE), a permanent laboratory that is
of continuously conducting various events, either locally at JFCOM or
globally, as required by its users.

"Our ability to distribute major portions of the space simulation to
and elsewhere allowed us to recreate the real world security environment
related challenges with planning and conducting global operation," said

"We were able to simulate in a realistic manner the regional combatant
commanders, multinational coalition partners, and embassies associated
the experiment. This realistic distribution will lend credibility to the
insights and observations made during the experiment."

Thor's Hammer represents the first of USJFCOM's 2004 co-sponsored
experiment. During the coming months, the command will also co-sponsor
Urban Warrior 04 with the U.S. Marine Corps, Unified Quest 04 with the
Army and Unified Engagement 04 with the U.S. Air Force.
