Abstract:

This report describes a procedure used to integrate simulation networking SIMNET exercises and traditional field exercises into a coordinated training plan intended to prepare an armor unit for a rotation at the Combat Training Center CTC. The procedures outlines the development of a Battalion training plan and the training sequence to be followed during the 7 months prior to a CTC rotation. The resulting plan allows commanders to tailor the training sequence to meet unit-specific training goals, thus maintaining higher combat readiness at a lower cost. Included is the SIMNET planning package prepared by SIMNET site staff that the unit used to plan and execute its simulation-based training.
