Abstract:

WARSIM 2000 will increase the effectiveness of commander and staff training, exercises, and staff mission rehearsals by dramatically increasing the realism and the scope of the available training environment. In conjunction with other simulations, WARSIM 2000 will provide a complete operational environment with scenarios covering the range of military operations within the stages of force projection operations to support globally distributed Army, joint, and coalition force task-based training. The WARSIM 2000 simulation system will use a computer based simulation and associated hardware to support the training of unit commanders and their staffs from battalion through theater level as well as to support training events in educational institutions. Users of the simulation will train under the control and supervision of a senior trainer, usually the commander of the highest echelon command represented in the training audience, the next higher level commander, or an instructor within the Army schools and academies. Designed and built using modern computer technology, modern software engineering techniques, and validated algorithms and databases, it will allow units world wide to train using their organizational equipment. A key feature of the system will be its use of technology to minimize the total Armys overhead associated with supporting training. The system will be designed to be compliant with the emerging High Level Architecture HLA for advanced distributed simulation to facilitate interoperability with other HLA compliant simulations, simulators, and live training events.
