with specialized training objectives. The SME shall support planning meetings,
develop and execute test plans, develop scenarios, and ensure internal systems
are functional prior to event execution. During execution, the SME shall bring
credible expertise in C2 mission areas for white force execution, operation of environment
generators and virtual systems identified in government directions document
(DD), interact. The SME will familiar
with Air Operations Center support systems (PFPS/JMPS, MAAPTK, JADOCS, TBMCS,
C2CORE, or any other ATO/ACO generation system), and participate in scenario
review to ensure desired exercise learning objectives are achievable. When AOC response cell is unavailable, SME must
be able to replicate AOC responsibilities in support of DMOC exercises.
Preferred experience: Bomber Subject Matter Expert
The bomber subject matter expert, requires US military
bomber crew member who will work, as part of an integrated engineering and
operational SME team, to provide operational, tactical, and analytical
expertise for the planning and execution of Air Combat Command’s Distributed
Mission Operations Center warfighter training, testing, and experimentation
exercises/events. Additionally, this
effort supports Live, Virtual and Constructive system development and
operational exercise support within a synthetic battlespace
- Responsibilities of the selected candidate will include support of
several activities within the DMOC to include:
- Participate in
Virtual Flag (or other exercises) scenario development and scenario generation
for the AOC and Bomber weapon systems to achieve the desired DLOs, training,
operational integration, and Tactics, Techniques , and Procedures (TTPs).
- Develop route files
using government flight planning systems (PFPS and/or JMPS) to fit into the
scenario and to produce Constructive Force Generation entities to “fly” in the
synthetic battlespace. Coordinate with
other SMEs for force generation deconfliction and packaging when required.
- Support the
development of exercise Comber Plans Division (CPD) documents including Air
Operations Directive, (AOD) Air Tasking Orders (ATO), Air Coordination Orders
(ACO), coordination cards, communication cards, Master Scenario Event List

the translation of operational bomber training requirements into exercise
design, build and execution and will support requirements definition for
Virtual and Constructive simulations, scenario generation tools, mission
planning tools, interactive system requirements, and exercise collaboration
- Work with system
engineers to plan, coordinate support for, and execute system integration
testing and will operate selected constructive simulators, within the DMOC, to
support site/system integration and Virtual Flag/other exercise scenario
