Abstract : The Theater Missile Defense Advanced Warfighting Experiment (TMD AWE), being conducted from July 1994 to October 1995, is a key component of the Joint Venture Campaign Plan for Force XXI and one of TRADOC's pivotal efforts for 1995. Conducted by the Air Defense Artillery School, in partnership with the Depth and Simultaneous Attack Battle Lab, this experiment will help the Army correct long-standing deficiencies in its ability to provide theater missile defense protection to U.S. and allied forces. Thus, it is important to understand the purpose of this AWE, how it is progressing, and what insights we expect to gain from it. The TMD AWE really consists of two major components. The first is a live exercise conducted as part of EXERCISE ROVING SANDS 95, an integrated air defense exercise sponsored by USACOM and executed by FORSCOM. The second is Joint Project Optic Cobra (JPOC), the CINCENT's joint TMD exercise that is conducted in conjunction with ROVING SANDS. Both exercises were held from 28 April to 8 May 1995 at Fort Bliss and White Sands Missile Range.
