[3] Up until now, each ORT project had been treated as a separate entity, and each time an exercise support requirement arises, a new data collection and analysis plan was developed. The ORT commenced a multi-phased project to align MARPAC/Joint Task Force Pacific (JTFP) exercises and experiments with the ORT role in supporting defence priorities, assigned missions, and tasks.[4] Phase One of the project, documented in a separate report [4], generated the six-phase Exercise and Experimentation Support Framework (the ‘Framework’) to support exercises and experiments conducted at the Regional Joint Task Force, Naval TG, and individual ship or sub-unit level. The Framework is based on existing high level Canadian and United States (U.S.) military doctrine and existing bodies of knowledge within the civil emergency management domain.
