Abstract:

Computer-Assisted Exercises CAXs have existed for some years. They are either distributed where participants remain in their home bases and are linked by high capacity communications or nondistributed where all those taking part are collocated. The use of distributed CAXs has grown significantly for the following reasons a Operational complexity multi-national and joint level training needed b To reduce costs of exercises by increasing distributed solutions which enable troops to remain within their own barracks c Technical advances have enabled far more effective simulation systems and d Simulation interoperability is there. To meet with this operational demand, twenty countries and 7 NATO bodies formed a working group also nicknamed SPHINX and delivered several NMSG reference documents AMSP-03 M and S standard profile for NATO and multi-national computer exercises with distributed simulation AMSP-04 NETN Federation Architecture and FOM Design AMSP-05 Guideline for non-CAX experts and The SPHINX conceptual model describing a Computer-Assisted exercise CAX.
