Abstract : USACOM's Joint Task Force Exercise (JTEEX) unintentionally creates an adversarial relationship between the participating carrier battlegroup (CVBC) and the Joint Force Air Component Commander (JFACC) by allowing the JFACC to exercise authority within the battlegroup's command and control organization. Specifically, this exercise places the CVBG in an awkward position by assigning responsibility for fleet air defense (FAD) to the JFACC while requiring it to operate in an area without first gaining battle space dominance. This paper identifies those factors responsible for this incompatibility by illustrating how these two organizations affect one another within the context of JTFEX, then seeks ways in which both the CVBG organization and JTFEX can change in order to create a more agreeable working relationship and a better exercise.
