The Joint Semi Automated Forces (JSAF) is a constructive simulation application developed by the United Stated Joint Forces Command (USJFCOM) with the aim of providing high fidelity entity level simulation to support training and experimentation exercises. JSAF has been used in a variety of experiments and training exercises, and is regularly used not only by the ADO but also by its coalition partners. The United States Joint Forces Command relies heavily on JSAF to provide constructive elements to very large simulation events such as the Talisman Sabre series of exercises, and the Multi National and Urban Resolve experiments.
The JSAF Operator and System Operator training course teaches students to install, configure and operate JSAF. The course is broken into two separate sections: Operator and System Operator.
The JSAF Operator portion of the course runs for first two-and-a-half days and introduces students to the JSAF environment and it’s Plan View Display (PVD). Students are taught to navigate and use the JSAF PVD for activities including creating and tasking various entities; creating, loading and saving scenarios; and modifying the PVD for use in different situations. This course is targeted at students wanting to gain JSAF Operator experience.
To best prepare students for system operator duties, this course includes a large practical portion. Students are given hands-on experience with JSAF to allow them to apply the lessons they have learnt and gain a functional understanding of the application.
The JSAF System Operator portion of the course is more advanced and runs for the final day-and-a-half. This section takes students through the process of installing, recompiling JSAF from source code and setting it up with different command and control options. This course is targeted at students wanting to learn how to deploy a series of JSAF environments that can be used by other operators.
To fully participate in the course, students are expected to have the following competencies:
