DDCA PSG – Distributed Debrief Control Architecture

Exercise replay is a common element of debriefing systems. Many tool vendors implement exercise replay using a variety of techniques and possess unique capabilities meeting the specific needs of the program. When these systems need to be integrated into a larger distributed debrief spanning multiple sites, problems arise due to a lack of an interoperable standard. The distributed debrief in this case may not leverage the rich capabilities each site has to offer, and only provide the bare minimum capability. Existing debriefing capabilities can be maintained and enhanced while reducing integration and operating costs through the development of an interoperable protocol for distributed debrief.

This standard specifies the control aspects of a distributed debrief. This standard does not include specifications for the actual playback of data.

The DDCA Product Support Group (PSG) purpose is to provide support for users of DDCA, including a discussion board and help for any issues using the standard.

The DDCA PSG is also the place to submit problem and change requests (PCRs) which is the approved method of getting changes or new additions into the future standard.
