There is a requirement for an improvement in the capability to conduct computer-assisted tactical exercises in support of Marine Corps amphibious training programs. Computer assistance is provided by the Tactical Warfare Simulation, Evaluation, and Analysis Systems TWSEAS. TWSEAS currently consists of two software programs and three operational sites. The fielded systems are well proven and highly utilized. They do, however, contain only limited capabilities in several areas such as air operations, combat service support and terrain model resolution. The Integrated Maneuver Controller IMC software will provide the upgraded capabilities outlined in this ROC. Some interfaces, such as with the Digital communications Terminal DCT, will require TWSEAS hardware modifications. These product improvements will be fielded in the current TWSEAS hardware with appropriate modifications. Usage will be as defined in the previously mentioned TWSEAS ROC. The addition of a suite of developmental hardware will be required. Upon completion of IMC, this equipment will form the basis of a fourth TWSEAS suite. The mission of TWSEAS both in its initial form and following the product improvement, is to assist in the Command and Control aspects of tactical exercises of all varieties and to train commanders and staffs in tactical decision making with primariy orientation toward the MAGTF staff and the ground combat element.
