Abstract:

In preparation for the Force XXI FXXI Army Warfighting Experiment AWE, the U.S. Army Experimental Force EXFOR 4th Infantry Division, located at Fort Hood, Texas, has been provided a unique synthetic training environment for training units in the use of command and control systems and use of the Tactical Internet. The training environment uses a combination of legacy Simulation Network SIMNET devices along with state of the art simulations. Together these systems have provided the EXFOR with the capability to train personnel at various levels. Training scenarios specifically for a digitized force were developed to support the SIMNET-Applique training environment. The training scenarios varied from Platoon to Company level. At least fourteen M1 tank and four M2 Bradley simulators are available for training. Each of these simulators has been modified with Applique hardwaresoftware as well as radio models Single channel Ground and Airborne Radio System - Systems Improvement Program SINCGARS-SIP and Enhanced Position Location Reporting System EPLRS and positionnavigation aids to provide a realistic simulation of the Command, Control, and Communications C3 capabilities these vehicles will have in the Task Force XXI TFXXI AWE. Surrogate nodes consisting of table-top Applique systems provide additional key nodes as required.
