Abstract:

The search for new, innovative approaches to training has led the U.S. Army Simulation, Training and Instrumentation Command STRICOM in Orlando, Florida to develop a new family of high technology, computer-based training facilities called the Combined Arms Tactical Trainer CATT. These training facilities will support realistic, interactive, combined arms training involving army units at the same or different locations operating in a virtual environment on a digitized battlefield. The first of the CATT family to be developed will be the Close Combat Tactical Trainer facility featuring manned simulator modules for training armored and mechanized forces at battalion and below. Two versions of the CCTT system are under development fixed-site system and mobile systems. Figure 1 below depicts the general layout and major components of a fixed-site CCTT facility. The manned simulator modules of the CCTT include main battle tanks, armored personnel carriers and command and control vehicles. The operations center emulates and controls battlefield operating systems that habitually train with the unit undergoing training. The after action review consoles replay segments of a training scenarios for the training unit to illustrate training lessons. The master control console starts and ends the training scenarios, and controls the tempo of the training scenario as well. The maintance console monitors the systems and conducts system diagnostics. There are also consoles for controlling the computer generated, and semiautomatic forces that populate the digitized battlefield during scenario execution.
