This is a report on the Combat Vehicle Command and Control CVCC company-level experiments carried out at the Developmental SIMNET site now known at the Close Combat Test Bed CCTB, at Ft. Knox in the winter and spring of 1990. These experiments were designed and carried by the Army Research Institutes ARI Ft. Knox Field Office. The purpose of this document is to describe the results of these experiments as they relate to the use of SINCGARS radios in a combat setting and to CECOMs interests generally. The CCTB at Ft. Knox consists of a series of M1 simulators which incorporate some of the capabilities expected in the M1A2 Block III tanks now under development. These simulators can be manned by a full complement of tank crews, and used to fight engagements involving man-in-the-loop simulations. The site has Semi-Automated Forces SAF, both to fill out the friendly units and to simulate enemy forces. The simulators are connected to one another and to the SAF through a network which carries information packets about the positions and states of all the vehicles, whether individual manned simulators or SAF. These packets are collected on the Data Logger and form the basis of the subsequent data analysis.
