Abstract:

SIMNET is an advanced research project sponsored by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency DARPA in partnership with the United States Army. Currently in its seventh year, the goal of the program is to develop the technology to build a large-scale network of interactive combat simulators. This simulated battlefield provides, for the first times, an opportunity for fully- manned platoon-, company-, and battalion-level units to fight force-on-force engagements against an opposing unit of similar composition. Furthermore, it does so in the context of a joint, combined arms environment with the complete range of command and control and combat service support elements essential to actual military operations. All of the elements that can affect the outcome of a battle are represented in this engagement, with victory likely to go to that unit which is able to plan, orchestrate, and execute their combined-arms battle operations better than their opponent. Whatever the outcome, combat units will benefit from this opportunity to practice collective, combined arms, joint war fighting skills at a fraction of the cost of an equivalent exercise in the field.
