Abstract : Joint Readiness is a newly defined area of readiness. Its purpose is to assess the combatant commanders' capability to integrate and synchronize ready combat and support forces to execute their assigned mission. This study explores current joint readiness measurement concepts, functions, and levels of readiness. The functions which measure joint readiness are identified and discussed. It argues that several of the present joint readiness functions measure levels of readiness which are not joint. The paper proposes establishing a combatant commander strategic level of readiness and that several of the current joint readiness functions should be assessed at this new level of readiness.
