Abstract : The purpose of integrating virtual simulations proof of concept into this training exercise was to demonstrate the value of virtual devices for providing training to both the primary (battlestaff) and secondary (supporting units) training audiences in addition to the live augmented with constructive simulation (primarily MAGTF Tactical Warfare Simulation (MTWS)) training model traditionally used in this type of exercise. To determine the impact of virtual integration on training efficacy (ability to complete tasks), PM TRASYS was also tasked to conduct an assessment of the training value during the LSE-14 Warm Start and Final Exercise (FINEX). This paper describes the outcome of the data collection, analysis, and recommendations for the virtual integration path forward from a training design perspective. The discussion presents doctrinal updates, measures, and standardization needs for Marine Corps (USMC) LVC training.
