Abstract : The Close Combat Tactical Trainer (CCTT) Cost and Training Effectiveness Analysis (CTEA) addressed the training capabilities, and using the life cycle costs estimated potential cost pay backs of the proposed CCTT. The CCTT simulator trains armor and mechanized infantry units in Army Training Evaluation Program (ARTEP) Mission Training Plans (MTP) tasks. The analysis was conducted in support of a milestone I/II ASARC decision on CCTT. The analysis determined the CCTT has the potential to train tasks related to (1) command, control, and communication, (2) maneuver and navigation, and (3) teamwork and leadership. The CCTT has the potential to train, to a lesser degree certain procedures related to gunnery, target acquisition and driving the vehicle. Due to the fidelity of the surrogate system, SIMNET-T, there may be some adverse impacts on training these subordinate tasks. The higher fidelity CCTT has the potential to remedy this problem. The CCTT has the potential to be a cost and training effective addition to the Army's training program. It is likely that the active component (AC) portion of the CCTT life cycle cost (LCC) will be fully paid back during the service life for either a company/team (CO/TM) or battalion/task force (BN/TF) level acquisition. The extent of the pay back indicated by the analysis must be validated during CCTT testing.
