Abstract:

The networking of combat vehicle simulators in SIMNET is a method of collective training that supplements field exercises. This report offers guidance for using the PC-based Unit Performance Assessment System UPAS to collect and analyze data from SIMNET exercises. The UPAS collects network data on vehicle status and firing events during exercises and loads these data into a relational database at the end of the exercise It contains menus of graph and tables that can be used to analyze unit performance. In addition, it contains graphic aids that integrate network data with unit planning information and terrain data to provide a complete description of unit performance. The UPAS can be used to analyze unit performance after an exercise and aid the trainer in identifying exercise events that contributed substantially to exercise outcomes. Using SIMNET capabilities for birds eye and out the window views or displays within the UPAS, events can be illustrated as units receive feedback during After-Action Reviews AARs.
