Abstract:

The Fort Knox Field Unit of the Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences has been investigating the possibility of using simulation techniques to conduct research on training command, control, and communications C3 skills in small unit combat operations. As part of this effort, ARI has developed SIMCAT Simulation in Combined Arms Training, a prototype computer-based battle simulation for training the C3 skills required for successful platoon-level armor operations. When completed, training conducted on SIMCAT will facilitate the transition from classroom to field training. Because SIMCAT is a prototype, numerous modifications have been made in both its software and mode of operation. As a result, the original instructions for its operation also had to be modified. This report contains these modified instructions and is intended to supplement the instructions in the SIMCAT documentation. Keywords training devices training simulators.
