advanced concept technology demonstration
A demonstration of the military utility of a significant new technology and an assessment to clearly establish operational utility and system integrity. (CJCSI 3170.01E)
advanced technology demonstration
A demonstration of the maturity and potential of advanced technologies for enhanced military operational capability or cost-effectiveness. The ATDs are identified, sponsored, and funded by the Services and defense agencies. (CJCSI 3170.01E)
analysis of alternatives
The evaluation of the performance, operational effectiveness, operational suitability, and estimated costs of alternative systems to meet a mission capability. The AoA assesses the advantages and disadvantages of alternatives being considered to satisfy capabilities, including the sensitivity of each alternative to possible changes in key assumptions or variables. The AoA is one of the key inputs to defining the system capabilities in the CDD. (CJCSI 3170.01E)
analysis of materiel/non-materiel approaches
The analysis of materiel/non-materiel approaches (AMA) collates the information obtained during the FAA, the FNA, the ideas for non-materiel approaches (DOTMLPF analysis), and the ideas for materiel approaches to determine the best approach or combination of approaches to provide the desired capability or capabilities. Though the AMA is similar to an AoA, it occurs earlier in the analytical process. Subsequent to approval of an ICD that may lead to a potential acquisition category I/IA program, program analysis and evaluation provides specific guidance to refine the initial AMA into an AoA. (CJCSM 3170.01B)
A framework or structure that portrays relationships among all the elements of the subject force, system, or activity. The structure of components, their relationships, and the principles and guidelines governing their design and evolution over time. Architecture provides data sets that describe the missions and tasks that must be performed and for what purpose - the operational view; the nodes and their characteristics that support the missions and tasks - the system view; and how the nodes exchange information and interact to perform the desired effects associated with the tasks - the technical view.
Army Force Generation
A structured progression of increased unit readiness over time, resulting in recurring periods of availability of trained, ready, and cohesive units prepared for operational deployment in support of regional combatant commander requirements.
Army technology objectives
The ATOs are designated either as ATO-Research (ATO-R) or ATO-Demonstration (ATO-D). Funded solely by the budget authority 6.2 funds, ATO-R focuses on laboratory applications to determine feasibility and potentially provide technology options in the mid- and far-term. ATO-Rs only reach Technology Readiness Level 5 or lower. Funded primarily by budget authority 6.3 funds, ATO-D focuses on products and transition to System Development and Demonstration phase for warfighting capability. ATO-Ds should be closely coupled to near-term user needs defined by the combat developers and synchronized with PM schedules.
TRADOC organizations or staff elements a higher headquarters directs to provide augmentation or other support to a lead for a function, task, or role. The augmentation or other support includes, but is not limited to, all applicable DOTMLPF domains. The organization that aids, complements, or sustains another organization, and is responsible for providing the assistance the lead organization requires. (TR 10-5)
The commandant or director of the respective school or institution that develops concepts, doctrine, tactics, techniques, procedures, organization designs, materiel requirements, training programs, training support requirements, manpower requirements (except as provided in AR 600-3), education requirements and related matters for a branch in the Army. (AR 5-22)
The CBA is the JCIDS analysis process that includes four phases: the FAA, FNA, FSA, and PIA. The results of the CBA are used to develop a JCD or ICD. (CJCSM 3170.01B)
The ability to achieve a desired effect under specified standards and conditions through combinations of means and ways to perform a set of tasks. It is defined by an operational user and expressed in broad operational terms in the format of a JCD, ICD, or a joint DCR. In the case of materiel proposals, the definition will progressively evolve to DOTMLPF performance attributes identified in the CDD and the CPD. (CJCSI 3170.01E)
capabilities, analysis, development, and integration environment
The CADIE provides the ability to govern and configuration manage architecture projects and data based on established TRADOC policies and procedures. The CADIE serves as a common architecture net-centric data strategy for implementing the DOD Architecture Framework (DODAF), complementing DARS, and ensuring Army and TRADOC specific capabilities are satisfied. CADIE is managed and controlled by TRADOC FC (AIMD) as part of an overall DOD-wide data strategy focused on the CADM. Leading edge tools and resources for state of the art architecting are incorporated in the CADIE to achieve greater effectiveness in a collaborative environment.
capability development document
A document that captures the information necessary to develop a proposed program(s), normally using an evolutionary acquisition strategy. The CDD outlines an affordable increment of a militarily useful, logistically supportable, and technically mature capability. (CJCSI 3170.01E)
A generic term to refer collectively to ICDs, CDDs, CPDs, and DCRs.
The inability to achieve a desired effect under specified standards and conditions through combinations of means and ways to perform a set of tasks. The gap may be the result of no existing capability or lack of proficiency or sufficiency in existing capability. (CJCSI 3170.01E)
capabilities needs analysis
The CNA provides senior Army leadership an integrated, operational assessment of the Army's capability to meet current mission readiness while building the future force (expressed as risks). By determining risk elimination/mitigation and trade-off strategies, it provides warfighter-based recommendations to influence POM decisions, underpinned by sound analysis.
capability production document
A document that addresses the production elements specific to a single increment of an acquisition program. (CJCSI 3170.01E)
A capstone concept is a holistic future concept that is a primary reference for all other concept development. This overarching concept provides direct linkages to national and defense level planning documents. A capstone concept drives the development of subordinate concepts. For example, the Capstone Concept for Joint Operations (CCJO) drives the development of joint operating concepts, joint functional concepts, joint integrating concepts, and Service concepts. The Army's capstone concept, TP 525-3-0, drives the development of Army operating and functional concepts as well as CCPs.
Capstone Concept for Joint Operations
The CCJO is the overarching concept of the family of joint concepts that guides the development of future joint capabilities. The purpose of the CCJO is to lead force development and employment primarily by providing a broad description of how the future joint force will operate. Service concepts and subordinate joint operating, functional and integrating concepts will expand on the CCJO solution. The CCJO broadly describes how future joint forces are expected to operate across the range of military operations 20 years in the future in support of strategic objectives. It applies to operations around the globe conducted unilaterally or in conjunction with multinational military partners and other government and non-government agencies. It envisions military operations conducted within a national strategy that incorporates all instruments of national power. (CJCSI 3010.02B)
The highest category of field manuals (FMs), those that link Army doctrine with the national security strategy and the national military strategy, and form the primary link between joint doctrine and Army doctrine. The CSA approves the capstone FMs. Field Manuals 1 and 3-0 are the capstone FMs. (TR 25-36)
community of practice
A group of organizations with a common interest in a subject area who interact to share information, processes, and products. A community of practice is defined by three characteristics: the shared domain of interest, the relationships defining the community (typically networked, consisting of the organizations as nodes), and a shared set of practices for the subject area.
A notion or statement of an idea - an expression of how something might be done - that can lead to an accepted procedure (CJCSI 3010.02A). A military concept is the description of methods (ways) for employing specific military attributes and capabilities (means) in the achievement of stated objectives (ends).
concept capability plan
A CCP describes the application of elements of joint and Army concepts to selected mission, enemy, terrain and weather, time, troops available, and civilian conditions. It is typically more illustrative and descriptive than a concept, and more focused in its purpose. A CCP includes one or more illustrative vignette(s) for a specific scenario and a set of distinguishing principles applicable to a particular operation. It may include multiple illustrative vignettes for specific mission, function, or operation from the range of military operations. The CCPs provide architecture data to support experimentation and the continuous refinement of the concept and architecture. The CCPs have the narrowest focus of all concepts in order to derive detailed required capabilities and operational architectures. The CCPs include the required details to initiate the capabilities-based assessment within the JCIDS.
Consultation leading to an expressing of views. To cause to act or work together for a common purpose, as in timing, unifying, and integrating work. (TR 10-5)
Department of Defense Architecture Repository System
The DOD Architecture Repository System is designed to capture and share information describing DOD enterprise architecture models. These models are derived from the DODAF, the guidance document created for developing, presenting, and integrating DOD architectures. The DARS is intended to be the authoritative repository and source for all DOD-related architecture data. It is driven by user requirements, flexible and extensible in application, net-centric by design, and supports architecture based acquisition. DARS is managed and controlled by the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Networks and Information Integration.
Modeling and simulations domain agents support domain managers by gathering requirements, ensuring user requirements are understood and supported, and managing the domain review and approval process. Domain agents are responsible for developing and maintaining a data base of investment information for their assigned models and simulations. They provide updates to the central investment data base when the Army Modeling and Simulation Office requests and manages the execution of approved investments. (AR 5-11)
Headquarters, DA designates a manager for each M&S domain. Domain managers coordinate M&S activities and develop and maintain supporting plans for their domains to include domain management plans and domain investment plans. (AR 5-11)
DOTMLPF change recommendation
A recommendation for changes to existing joint resources when such changes are not associated with a new defense acquisition program. (CJCSI 3170.01E)
An evolutionary approach that delivers capability in increments, recognizing up front, the need for future capability improvements. Evolutionary acquisition is the preferred DOD strategy for rapid acquisition of mature technology for the user. The objective is to balance needs and available capability with resources and to put capability into the hands of the user quickly. The success of the strategy depends on consistent and continuous definition of requirements and the maturation of technologies that lead to disciplined development and production of systems that provide increasing capability towards a materiel concept.
family of joint future concepts
Incorporates strategic guidance and enduring national interest through an overarching concept. The joint operations concept is written in order to provide overarching guidance to the joint concept community of how the future joint force should operate in 10 to 20 years. This guides the selection, writing, and development of joint operating concepts, joint functional concepts, and joint integrating concepts. These concepts together constitute the family of joint future concepts. (CJCSI 3170.01E)
A broad scope of related joint warfighting skills and attributes that may span the range of military operations. Specific skill groupings that make up the functional areas are approved by the JROC. (CJCSI 3170.01E)
functional area analysis
The FAA is the first step of the JCIDS CBA. It identifies the operational tasks, conditions, and standards needed to achieve military objectives. It uses the national strategies, joint/Army concepts, the universal Joint task list and the Army universal task list, and the anticipated range of broad capabilities that adversaries might employ as input. Its output is a list of capabilities and their associated tasks and attributes to be reviewed in the follow-on FNA. The FAA includes cross-capability analysis and cross-system analysis in identifying the operational task, conditions, and standards. (CJCSM 3170.01B)
Functional Capabilities Board
A permanently established body that is responsible for the organization, analysis, and prioritization of joint warfighting capabilities within an assigned functional area. (CJCSI 3170.01E)
Functional Capabilities Board working group
The FCB working groups are the analytic support for the FCBs. They perform the review and assessment of JCIDS documents, work with the sponsors to resolve issues, and make recommendations to the FCB. (CJCSI 3170.01E)
functional needs analysis
The FNA is the second step of the JCIDS CBA. It assesses the ability of the current and programmed joint and/or Army capabilities to accomplish the tasks, under the full range of operating conditions and to the designated standards that the FAA identified. Using the tasks identified in the FAA as primary input, the FNA produces as output a list of capability gaps that require solutions and indicates the time frame in which those solutions are needed. (CJCSM 3170.01B)
functional solution analysis
The FSA is the third step of the JCIDS CBA. The FSA is an operationally-based assessment of potential DOTMLPF and policy approaches to solving (or mitigating) one or more of the capability gaps identified in the FNA. The gaps identified in the FNA are inputs to the FSA; its outputs are potential solutions to resolve identified capability gaps. In considering these approaches, the following order of priority is used: changes to existing DOTMLPF and/or policy approach; product improvements to existing materiel or facilities alone; adoption of interagency or foreign materiel approaches that limited non-materiel DOTMLPF and/or policy consequences; and finally, new materiel starts. The FSA is composed of three sub-steps: ideas for non-materiel approaches (DOTMLPF analysis), ideas for materiel approaches, and the AMA. (CJCSM 3170.01B)
ideas for non-materiel approaches (DOTMLPF analysis)
As the first sub-step in the FSA, the DOTMLPF analysis determines whether a non-materiel approach or an integrated DOTMLPF and/or policy approach can fill the capability gaps identified in the FNA. Non-materiel approaches include changes in DOTMLPF. If the analysis determines that the capability gap can be partially addressed by an integrated DOTMLPF and/or policy approaches, the proponent will assess them in conjunction with the potential materiel approaches. If this approach is recommended, the proponent will develop a DCR in addition to required CDDs or CPDs. If the analysis determines that the capability gap can be completely addressed by a non-materiel approach, the proponent will develop a DCR in lieu of completing the ICD. (CJCSM 3170.01B)
In this process, a desired capability is identified, an end-state requirement is known, and that requirement is met over time by developing several increments, each dependent on available mature technology. (DODI 5000.2)

Documents the need for a materiel approach or an approach that is a combination of materiel and non-materiel to satisfy a specific capability gap(s). It defines the capability gap(s) in terms of the functional area, the relevant range of military operations, desired effects, time, and DOTMLPF and policy implications and constraints. The ICD summarizes the results of the DOTMLPF and policy analysis and the DOTMLPF approaches (materiel and non-materiel) that may deliver the required capability. The outcome of an ICD could be one or more DCRs or CDDs. (CJCSI 3170.01E.
integrated capability development team
An integrated team made up of people from multiple disciplines formed to develop a CCP, perform the JCIDS capabilities-based assessment to identify capability gaps, identify non-materiel and/or materiel approaches to resolve those gaps, and develop an ICD and/or DCR, when directed.
Joint Capabilities Board
The JCB functions to assist the JROC in carrying out its duties and responsibilities. The JCB reviews and, if appropriate, endorses all JCIDS and DOTMLPF proposals prior to their submission to the JROC. The JCB is chaired by the Director of Force Structure, Resources, and Assessment, Joint Staff, J-8. It is comprised of flag officer/general officer representatives of the Services. (CJCSI 3170.01E)
joint capabilities document
The JCD identifies a set of capabilities that support a defined mission area utilizing associated family of joint future concepts, CONOPS, or Unified Command Plan-assigned missions. The capabilities are identified by analyzing what is required across all functional areas to accomplish the mission. The gaps or redundancies are then identified by comparing the capability needs to the capabilities provided by existing or planned systems. The JCD will be used as a baseline for one or more FSAs leading to the appropriate ICD or DCR, but cannot be used for the development of a CDD or CPD. The JCD will be updated as changes are made to the supported family of joint future concepts, CONOPS, or assigned missions. (CJCSM 3170.01B)
A significant function that underpins the ability to execute two or more core functions. An integral component of the set of functions or tasks required to execute a core function. One or more organizations can perform this function. (TR 10-5)
The second highest category of Army doctrinal publications, which corresponds to the joint keystone category. Keystone FMs constitute the doctrinal foundation of a series of FMs or address subjects that significantly affect the conduct of full spectrum operations. They link their subject doctrine with Army capstone doctrine and joint doctrine. They include FMs that establish the doctrinal foundation for individual branches of the Army. (TR 25-36)
The TRADOC organization or staff element having primary responsibility for a function, task, or role a higher headquarters assigns. Responsibility for the function, task, or role begins with initial assignment and ends with its completion. The responsibility also includes all aspects of planning, execution and integration across all applicable DOTMLPF domains. The organization which receives assistance from another organization(s) or staff element(s), and is responsible for ensuring that the supporting organization(s) or staff element(s) understands the assistance required. Specifically, lead has three areas of responsibility:
· Develop, coordinate, and recommend command policy.
· Develop, coordinate, and recommend command guidance.
· Develop, coordinate, and recommend taskings to execute specific missions and tasks or provide specific support. (TR 10-5)
major Army command
A command directly subordinate to, established by authority of, and specifically designated by Headquarters, Department of the Army. Army component commands of unified and specified commands are major Army commands. (AR 10-87)
Correction of a deficiency, satisfaction of a capability gap, or incorporation of new technology that results in the development, acquisition, procurement, or fielding of a new item (including ships, tanks, self-propelled weapons, aircraft, and others, and related software, spares, repair parts, and support equipment, but excluding real property, installations, and utilities) necessary to equip, operate, maintain, and support military activities without disruption as to its application for administrative or combat purposes. In the case of family-of-systems and SoS approaches, an individual materiel solution may not fully satisfy a necessary capability gap on its own. (CJCSI 3170.01E)
modeling and simulation
A model is a mathematical, logical, physical, or procedural representation of some real or ideal system, and modeling is the process of developing a model. A simulation is the implementation of a model in executable form or the execution of a model over time. Taken together, "modeling and simulation" or M&S refers to the broad discipline of creating, implementing, understanding, and using models and simulations. M&S facilitates early identification and reduction of the risks associated with complex system acquisition programs; helps to better understand what kinds of system requirements and architectures are feasible and affordable given various programmatic and technological constraints; and provides insight into how to better manage system engineering efforts so as to improve the overall likelihood of a successful acquisition effort. (AR 5-11)
Changes in doctrine, organization, training, materiel, leadership and education, personnel, facilities, or policy (including all human systems integration domains) to satisfy identified functional capabilities. The materiel portion is restricted to commercial or non-developmental items, which may be purchased commercially, or by purchasing more systems from an existing materiel program. (CJCSI 3170.01E)
A generic term to refer collectively to the non-TRADOC organization designated by AR 5-22 as specified and branch proponents. These include U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command, U.S. Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School, U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command, U.S. Army Medical Department Center and School, and The Judge Advocate General Legal Center and School.
A description (often graphical) of the operational elements, assigned tasks, and information flows required to accomplish or support a warfighting function. It defines the type of information, the frequency of exchange, and what tasks are supported by these information exchanges.
Describes all conditions or variables (physical, demographic, political, economic, technological, and military) and other circumstances and influences which affect the employment of military forces and bear on the decisions of the unit commander.
A high-level overall plan embracing the general goals and acceptable procedures of an organization in light of given conditions to guide and determine present and future decisions. (TR 10-5)
Army organization or staff element designated by the HQDA DCS, G-3/5/7 that has primary responsibility for materiel or subject matter expertise in its area of interest or charged with accomplishment of one or more functions. (AR 5-22)
An established need justifying the timely allocation of resources to achieve a capability to accomplish approved military objectives, missions, or tasks.
A graphic and narrative description of area, environment, means (political, economic, social, and military), and events of a future hypothetical conflict. (TR 71-4)
The commander or chief of any agency responsible for a designated area that does not fall within the purview of a branch proponent. Specified proponents will have the same responsibilities as branch proponents. (AR 5-22)
To improve current force capabilities, the Army restructured the FCS program to allow insertion of FCS technologies/capabilities into the force much earlier than envisioned in the May 03 Milestone B approved program of record. "Spin out" is a term developed by OSD to describe the unique method in which the FCS program is now planning, earlier than originally planned, to provide mature FCS capabilities/technologies to the current force while simultaneously maintaining focus on achieving threshold and objective capabilities for the Army's future force. This term is used to avoid confusion with the term "spiral" that refers to technologies inserted into an acquisition program over time as described in DOD 5000. The spin out of FCS capabilities will support the current force by addressing capabilities gaps with mature technology solutions while maintaining the Army focus on development of the FCS-equipped BCT, substantially reducing FCS program risk.
In this process, a desired capability is identified, but the end-state requirements are not known at program initiation. Those requirements are refined through demonstration and risk management; there is continuous user feedback; and each increment provides the user the best possible capability. The requirements for future increments depend on feedback from users and technology maturation. (DODI 5000.2)
The responsibilities of the staff to assist and coordinate lead organization efforts by analyzing, monitoring, assessing, and developing recommendations for the commander on all activities affecting policy, organization guidance, developmental processes, and implementation or execution processes in support of the organization meeting its mission. The staff will facilitate the coordination and dissemination of plans, doctrine, and training with higher HQ and external agencies as appropriate. (TR 10-5).
Identifying and communicating with the internal and external organizations or audiences to achieve desired outcomes. In doing so, the command develops, synchronizes, and articulates key themes and messages in support of the strategic vision, goals, and objectives. Strategic communications will inform a broad variety of audiences and ensure command wide unity of effort. Effective strategic communication not only serves the command, but also must support the Army and the joint communities in their strategic communications efforts. (TR 10-5)
Interaction with stakeholders who potentially affect the ability of the joint community, the Army, or TRADOC to accomplish their strategic goals or mission. Interaction includes deliberate communications activities with specific, concise, unifying, and consistent themes and messages, targeted at a specific stakeholder in a planned environment, using a designated messenger, that support a broader strategic communications plan. (TR 10-5)
A set or arrangement of interdependent systems that are related or connected to provide a given capability. The loss of any part of the system will significantly degrade the performance or capabilities of the whole. The development of a SoS solution will involve trade space between the systems as well as within an individual system performance. An example of a SoS would be a combat aircraft. While the aircraft may be developed as a single system, it could incorporate subsystems developed for other aircraft. For example, the radar from an existing aircraft may be incorporated into the one being developed rather than developing a new radar. The SoS in this case would be the airframe, engines, radar, avionics, and other systems that make up the entire combat aircraft capability. (CJCSI 3170.01E)
A generic term to refer collectively to the commanders of TRADOC centers and schools designated by AR 5-22 as specified or branch proponents.
The review of documentation by an operational authority other than the user to confirm the operational capability. Validation is a precursor to approval. (CJCSI 3170.01E)
