Abstract:

The Simulation NetworkingTraining Requirements Relational Database was developed to support analyses and training research projects for applying networked simulators to collective training. The collective tasks, subtasks, and standards described in armor platoon-, company team-, and battalion task force- level Mission Training Plan MTP documents form the core of the database. This core is supplemented with three types of data on each of over five thousand collective performance standards. The first type of data rates the extent to which the unit can perform the activities associated with each standard in the current simulation networking SIMNET environment. The second type of data provides information on how each of 41 potential enhancements to SIMNET would change the extent to which units can perform activities associated with each standard. This type of data ensures the utility of the database as new generations of network simulators are fielded. The third type of data identifies the source or sources of the data required to assess whether a unit meets performance standards in the networked simulator training environment. These data sources include data broadcast over the simulation network, unit plans for performing the mission, terrain data, tactical communications, and direct observation of behavior.
