Abstract : This report supports the advanced development of the US Army Robotic Wingmans Joint Capabilities Technology Demonstration software-in-the-loop (SIL) simulation testbed. It is a collaboration including the US Army Research Laboratory, US Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center, and Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division. The purpose is to provide advanced software development, rapid prototyping, and early assessment and training of Warfighter teaming within mannedunmanned gunnery operations. This report reviews the January 2017 integration event (documented in ARL-TN-0830) highlighting the setup and capabilities of the SIL, and describes advancements to the SIL (including creation of virtual environments that matched real-world gunnery test courses) and increased compatibility of the SIL software and simulation systems. It also provides a how-to guide for setting up the SIL and documentation for how to assess and correct for potential errors across the SIL.
