The Distributed Interactive Fire Mission DIFM Concept Evaluation Program CEP was an experimental exercise conducted at the Mounted Warfare Test Bed MWTB at Fort Knox, KY from January 19 to 29, 1999. The experiment was performed as Delivery Order DO 0098 under the Lockheed Martin Advanced Distributed Simulation Technology 2 ADST 2 Contract administered by the U.S. Army Simulation, Training, and Instrumentation Command STRICOM. The Mounted Maneuver Battle Lab MMBL, Fort Knox, KY sponsored the experiment. The experiment utilized a synthetic environment that employed virtual simulations to depict an Armor Platoon executing six basic platoon level scenarios in realistic combat situations in various experimental configurations. The scenarios were executed on the Synthetic Theatre of War Europe STOW-E terrain database using Movement to Contact vignettes. These scenarios were designed into a twenty-eight trail matrix to induce the platoon leader to make tactical decisions which affected battle outcomes.
