Joint Data Link Information Combat Execution (JDICE) Joint Test
The JDICE JT&E will improve the warfighter's battlespace situational awareness by developing, testing, evaluating and institutionalizing Joint and Service tactics, techniques and procedures. These JTTP's will filter critical mission information to build a Relevant Tactical Picture on Link-16.
Development of International Tactical Employment Manuals
In an effort to better equip allies to fight alongside United States armed forces during battle, the Chief of Staff of the Air Force directed that the USAF tactical employment doctrine be released to our allied nations. The primary means to accomplish this tasking is to edit existing USAF tactical doctrine, known as Air Force Tactics, Techniques and Procedures manuals, into a product suitable for foreign release.
The AFTTP tactics manuals are updated every two years and the goal is to provide allied nations with current tactics in phase with the current USAF tactics manuals.
