Abstract:

This research evaluated the operational effectiveness, training, and soldier-machine interface SMI implications of a Combat Vehicle Command and Control CVCC experimental configuration that included the Commanders Independent Thermal Viewer and a Command and Control display. Using Ml tank simulators in the Mounted Warfare Test Bed at Fort Knox, KY, the evaluation focused on tank battalion operations. Each of twelve groups of soldiers completed a 1-week training and testing schedule that culminated in a simulated combat scenario. One of a series, this report documents tactical unit performance, and techniques and procedures employed to take advantage of the CVCC systems capabilities. Companion reports address operational effectiveness data, and training and SMI-related findings. The collective findings provide input to the design and development of training programs for future automated command, control, and communications systems in ground combat vehicles.
