Fox Training & Readiness Management System

The Innovative Fox Training & Readiness Management System for Complete Individual and Unit Mission Preparedness To be prepared for conflict, armed forces must engage rigorous and leading-edge training methods and equipment. However, despite state-of-the-art collaborative field, simulation and virtual warfare exercises, the majority of armies do not have a clear picture whether training exactly corresponds with mission objectives. Often obstructing their views are numerous duplicative, stove-piped systems with disparate, redundant and conflicting data. This critically hinders command's ability to strategically oversee multi-disciplined, collaborative training environments, and measure achievements against operation goals.

Fox Training & Readiness Management System

The Innovative Fox Training & Readiness Management System for Complete Individual and Unit Mission Preparedness To be prepared for conflict, armed forces must engage rigorous and leading-edge training methods and equipment. However, despite state-of-the-art collaborative field, simulation and virtual warfare exercises, the majority of armies do not have a clear picture whether training exactly corresponds with mission objectives. Often obstructing their views are numerous duplicative, stove-piped systems with disparate, redundant and conflicting data. This critically hinders command's ability to strategically oversee multi-disciplined, collaborative training environments, and measure achievements against operation goals. The innovative Fox system, a comprehensive training and readiness management platform, ensures across an entire armed force, a Common Operational Picture (COP) of verifiable defense force mission preparedness. Fox is a unified, cloud-enabled, governed and architecturally-compliant solution that oversees all stages and levels of training and readiness management. Modular, scalable and fully integrated, the commercial-off-the-shelf, the Fox system comprehensively manages and optimizes all individual and unit operational, institutional and self-development training. One system exceptionally fits all, as Fox manages for all military branches in every Training Environment (TE), training scheduling, development, qualifications/certifications, learning content, execution and resources. It is used by schoolhouses, academies, combat units, flight schools, field and simulation training centers, operational units, training and doctrine command HQs and more. Fox uniquely delivers complete role-based situational awareness and directly enhances mission effectiveness through configurable dashboards that present essential role-based, real-time COP, which meet strategic military requirements with unparalleled training planning, preparation, execution, KPI, BI, analysis, and reporting features. It thoroughly ensures that training is mission-relevant by standardizing roles, capabilities, objectives and measures, relating them to training methods and activities, then validating assumptions through ongoing performance measurement. Fox provides insight for understanding mission fitness and combat power for better commander decision-making through timely, self-generated, customized analytical reporting using soldier and battalion training history, strength and weakness data. It enables command to forecast readiness via sustainable readiness and force generation models and other standardized training assessment methodologies. It maintains for all perpetuity in a user-friendly, analytical interface the required cradle-to-grave System of Records-compliant data of all trainee grading, performance and qualification readiness information. Essential to shrinking military budgets, Fox significantly reduces the Cost of Training (CoT). It proactively identifies savings through delivering the highest achievable level of valid training scheduling and resource allocation/utilization efficiency. Using one holistic system substantially reduces the time-consuming, complex and duplicative activities of multiple existing systems.
