Abstract:

This research was focused on the first objective and presents a concept for the design of a common performance measurement system for unit training at the National Training Center NTC and Simulation Networking SIMNET. Two platoon missions defense and hasty attack were used as the vehicle for presenting the concept. The measurement model established in previous ARI research on unit performance measurement and used to guide the present efforts is a three-part model that recognizes the roles of process, outcome, and expert judgment in assessing unit performance. The model provides bottom line outcome measure of mission accomplishment derived from the accepted military analysis factors of mission, enemy forces, friendly troops, terrain, and time METT-T. In addition to METT-T factors, AMPT-based mission critical tasks have been identified that provide a benchmark for measuring the degree of unit conformity to establish tactical doctrine. The concept for a common performance measurement system across both NTC and SIMNET training described herein examines the applicability of the NTC-based model to the SIMNET environment and identifies the boundaries of overlap between the two training settings.
