Abstract:

The SIMNET program is an advanced technology project developed by Bolt Beranek and Newman Inc. and sponsored by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency DARPA in close cooperation with the Army. Its objective is to develop large-scale networking of military simulators for such vehicles as tanks and fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft. By utilizing a network of low-cost, full-crew simulators, each supported by its own set of microprocessors, the Army can conduct platoon-, company-, and battalion-level exercises incorporating all of the tactical, logistic, administrative, and communication elements that are critical to actual field operations. This technology will permit regular and intensive practice of team combat skills. Recording data from an exercise is straightforward in SIMNET, since all of the basic information about vehicle movements, firings, hits, etc., is contained in data packets broadcast onto the SIMNET network by each simulator and the Management, Command, and Control System MCC.
