Abstract : The introduction of Joint Vision 2010 will drive fundamental changes in the methods the Navy uses to train its forces. The four new operational concepts (Dominant Maneuver, Precision Engagement, Full Dimensional Protection, and Focused Logistics) each exploit service unique capabilities to achieve full spectrum dominance. Because these concepts require the tools each service brings to the battlefield, the employment of combined arms will increasingly depend on a joint force that trains together to refine these capabilities. Therefore, naval training processes will shift from primarily a single service focus to a joint force structure, emphasizing interoperability and integration issues. Joint training program initiatives have already started the transition to a joint focus, under the auspices of USACOM in its role of Joint Force Integrator. Naval commanders have also made changes to improve the level of joint training. The current Battle Group turnaround training program does not emphasize joint training until late in the training cycle. Exercises in the Atlantic Fleet attain a higher level of joint force participation because the current joint organizational structure places virtually all Army and Air Force CONUS based units in U.S. Atlantic Command's geographic region. Initiatives from both the joint sector and the Navy will bring the training of naval forces to a substantially different training syllabus than the current model. More issues must be addressed to complete the transition from synergistic joint operations to coherent joint operations.
