GENTEXT/REMARKS/1.  Situation.  In April 2021, the Commandant provided an annual update on Force Design 2030, which described innovation as a hallmark of our corps critical to the service’s ability to evolve.  He emphasized the importance of intellectual rigor, close and consistent coordination, ruthless analysis, and potential abandonment of familiar ideas, capabilities, and platforms.  The anticipated proliferation of expeditionary long-range precision fires, loitering munitions, infantry battalion organic precision fires, unmanned systems, and electronic warfare capabilities, among others will pose an enormous challenge to our ability to train collectively and create combat readiness.  Our systems will quickly outpace our current training infrastructure, live-fire ranges, and exceed environmental and other local governmental policies and restrictions in CONUS and OCONUS.  To mitigate these issues, the Commandant prioritized modernization of training capabilities as one of the top three investments in support of force design 2030.  Project Tripoli is the means through which the Marine Corps will train at all echelons, across all domains, and in disparate locations which will breathe life into Force Design 2030 and develop a warfighting capability able to meet tomorrow’s challenges.   
1.a.  Project Tripoli:  LVC-TE overview
1.a.  (1) In its mature state, LVC-TE supports the Commandant’s vision for Force Design 2030 by providing a comprehensive venue to train using emerging systems and capabilities across all domains.  It will build readiness across all echelons of command and throughout the MAGTF while allowing for experimentation with emerging technologies and concepts.  The LVC-TE will provide the architecture to integrate and render real-time data from instrumented ranges, force-on-force training aids and devices, simulators, and simulations across a deliberately provisioned training network that enables connectivity and interaction across globally disparate training sites.
1.a.  (2) The purpose of the Project Tripoli (LVC-TE) development conference is to identify and synchronize the key stakeholders of the user community (“organizations and individuals”), the requirements & resources sponsor, and the acquisition professionals to deliver a meaningful capability to the Marine Corps.  Unquestionably, the LVC-TE will span the entire Marine Corps, requiring a unified and coordinated approach to its development and implementation.  To this end, it is critical that this conference defines the LVC-TE lines of effort (LOE), identifies the way forward for the physical development of the LVC-TE, and delivers a clear vision of the final capability provided to the operating forces.
1.a.  (3) The desired endstate of the Project Tripoli (LVC-TE) development conference is a synchronized way ahead across relevant LOE enabling a deliberate, coordinated, proactive strategy for the development and implementation of the LVC-TE.
1.b.  This message announces the convening of the Project Tripoli (LVC-TE) development conference from 5-7 April 2022 in Orlando, FL.  This conference is intended for appropriate action officers from, at a minimum, commands identified in para 5.
2.  Mission.  From 5-7 April 2022, Commanding General (CG), TECOM convenes the Project Tripoli LVC-TE development conference in order to organize and synchronize efforts toward the development of a Marine Corps LVC-TE among key stakeholder organizations.
3.  Execution.  The Project Tripoli (LVC-TE) development conference will be organized into five working groups to address specific requirements to develop the capability.  The working groups include governance, standards, interoperability, network, and user stories.
3.a.  Intent.  The intent of this MARADMIN is to solicit appropriate participation in the Project Tripoli (LVC-TE) development conference.
3.b.  Concept of Operations
3.b.  (1) The Project Tripoli (LVC-TE) development conference will be conducted in Orlando, FL from 5-7 April.  The conference will begin at 0730 eastern time on 5 April at PM TRASYS facilities.  Detailed instructions and read-a-heads will be provided to designated stakeholder representatives via separate correspondence (SEPCOR) NLT 11 march 2022.
3.b.  (2) The Project Tripoli (LVC-TE) development conference five working groups:
3.b.  (2)(a) The governance working group will develop the LVC-TE concept of employment for signature by CG TECOM; identify additional document requirements and establish the POA&M for production; identify near term strategic communication opportunities; and assign Office of Primary Responsibility (OPR) / Office of Coordinating Responsibility (OCR) across supporting tasks.
3.b.  (2)(b) The standards working group will develop the outline for LVC-TE technical / data standards with the goal of publishing a standards portfolio for present and future operational and training systems (OPR / OCR).
3.b.  (2)(c) The interoperability working group will develop the outline for LVC-TE’s ability to integrate data and information from various simulations, simulators, and operating systems.  Additionally, this working group will establish the interoperability POA&M.
3.b.  (2)(d) The network working group will develop the outline for LVC-TE network requirements; requirements for operating in multi-classification domains; and requirements for the LVC-TE network connectivity to the NCTE, JTEN, ATN, TEN, DMON, and mission partner networks.
3.b.  (2)(e) The user story working group will develop user stories for development that will help define how to create a meaningful capability to the end users from every level of command.  A user story is defined as:  desired system behavior based on a user scenario that can be implemented and demonstrated in one iteration.
