Abstract:

Armstrong Laboratorys Aircrew Training Research Division ALHRA, located in Mesa, AZ, participated in the Synthetic Theater of War-Europe STOW-E exercise which occurred on 4-7 Nov 94. The goal of STOW-E was to enhance joint training capabilities by seamless integrating live, virtual, constructive simulations using Distributed Interactive Simulation DIS technology. These simulations which were generated from 17 different sites throughout the United States, England, and Germany communicated via the Defense Simulation Internet DSI. ALHRA provided two high-fidelity F- 16 flight simulator cockpits and associated weapons. In addition, pilots, engineering expertise, and program management expertise were provided. The pilots flew joint simulated air interdiction missions, attacking ground targets. This report summarizes Armstrong Laboratorys participation in STOW-E, focusing on the following topics the engineering effort that was required for the Laboratory to join STOW-E, how local exercise control and management were obtained, a description of the laboratorys operational scenarios, a listing of lessons learned, and, finally, a chronology of significant STOW-E events.
