Abstract:

This report describes an evaluation of the effectiveness of SIMITAR Simulation in Training for Advanced Readiness. The SIMITAR Program encompasses various interventions, i.e., simulation devices, computer-based courseware, and training strategies designed to train tasks described in ARTEP Army Training and Education Program MTPs Mission Training Plans. The SIMITAR interventions are used in four training areas Gunnery, Maneuver, BSS Battle Staff Synchronization, and CSS Combat Service Support. This assessment report on the effectiveness of SIMITAR in the performance of the 116th Armored Cavalry Brigade at the National Training Center in July 1998 focuses primarily on BSS and CSS it also includes a limited examination of Platoon Maneuver. An assessment of Gunnery and a more complete assessment of Maneuver will be described in a subsequent overall SIMITAR assessment report, which will also include BSS and CSS performance results reported here.
