Abstract : As the problems the force is asked to solve change, the implied task associated is that ways and means of training change and evolve to meet those challenges. This thesis examined the possibility of linked simulation training from CONUS to OCONUS at the tactical echelon with multinational partners. Through comparative document analysis, the research focused on understanding the mission of regionally aligned forces, the simulation technology available, and the viewpoint of NATO and European Union partners on simulations training. Each category provided evidence to support the concept as acceptable and feasible between the parties investigated during this project. Analysis focused on identifying a capabilities gap through DOTMLPF in combination with an assessment of two case studies involving higher echelon use of simulations. Through this methodology, the findings are that D/O/P/F have required capabilities to support linked simulations training, but gaps in the areas of T/L/M exists preventing this training opportunity from occurring beyond the gaming environment.
