Abstract:

The SIMEX II was conducted during the period 17-23 September 1997 and the Division Advanced Warfighting Experiment DAWE was conducted from 5-13 November 1997 at the BICEP facility at Ft. Hood, TX. The exercises were sponsored by the Directorate of Training, Doctrine and Simulation DOTDS, U.S. Army Aviation Center, Fort Rucker, AL. The training exercises utilized virtual simulation integrated with a notional tactical command and control network to provide training for the TF XXI AViation task force. A notional AVTOC was integrated on a tactical LAN. A DIS LAN consisted of manned simulators and computer generated forces. The two LANs were connected via the Tactical Simulation Interface Unit TSIU. Scenarios were utilized to exercise the aircrews and command and control processes. The virtual stations included the Aviation Reconfigurable Manned Simulator ARMS proof of principle device and follow-on units, the Comanche Portable Cockpit CPC, Apache-Longbow workstations, a man in the loop threat air defense simulator, and the Suite of Integrated Radio Frequency Countermeasures SIRFC. This final report addresses the simulation, tactical, and communications networks developed to support the two exercises and lessons learned. This document does not address the performance of the Aviation Task Force during the exercise.
