The Maritime Forces Pacific (MARPAC) Operational Research Team (ORT) supports MARPAC/Joint Task Force Pacific (JTFP) exercises (EX), including tabletop and command post exercises (TTX/CPX) and war games; these can be at various levels up to and including the Naval Task Group (TG) level. [1] Until now, each ORT project was treated as a separate entity and each time an exercise support requirement arose, a new data collection and analysis plan was developed. The ORT commenced a multi-phased project to align MARPAC/JTFP exercises and experiments with the ORT role in supporting defence priorities, assigned missions, and tasks. Phase One of the project [2] generated the six-component 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. [3][4][5][3][6][7][8][9][10][11] It provides a method for task decomposition based on scenarios and training objectives which reflect current and future Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) joint priorities. Phase Two-Part A proposed a data collection plan [12]. The development of this plan was based on the operational task requirements and their corresponding measurements that were associated with two complex scenarios (i.e., a multi-national
