MYMIC, in concert with its Prime, assists the Joint Staff, J8 Directorate with analytic, strategic, technical, managerial, and administrative support to enhance the Joint Staff’s mission and total force readiness.
The Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) consists of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (CJCS), the Vice Chairman, the Chief of Staff of the Army, the Chief of Naval Operations, the Chief of Staff of the Air Force, the Commandant of the Marine Corps and the Chief of the National Guard Bureau. The Joint Staff (JS) supports the CJCS in executing his Title X duties to assist the President and Secretary of Defense by providing independent military advice for the strategic direction, strategic planning, contingency planning and preparedness of the Armed Forces. To assist the CJCS in his duties, the J8 performs detailed, timely and verifiable assessments of threats and capabilities to establish realistic goals for U.S. defense spending, ensuring linkage between future U.S. military force structure and national objectives. The focal point for J8’s analysis of defense capabilities needs, when coupled with the potentially revolutionary impact of technology and increasingly constrained budget authority, is the Joint Requirements Oversight Council (JROC). J8 provides much of the assessment underpinnings for the council’s review of defense resource policy on a myriad of items ranging from precision strike capabilities to the designation of advanced concepts technology demonstrations, and analyzes the associated service budgets and programs.
As part of its support, MYMIC and the team provide the Joint Staff J8 with war fighting analysis, war gaming, interagency politico-military seminars and simulations to assess the ability of the programmed force to execute the National Military Strategy. Furthermore, we support the Joint Staff J8 in the development and support of quantitative analytical models used in war fighting analyses of current and future forces.
