Abstract:

Battlespace Integrated Concept Emulation Program Test Cell BICEP-TC began as a Unilateral Delivery Order UDO in support of Fort Hoods SiMulation EXercise SIMEX 2 in 1997. It transformed into a standard Delivery Order DO 0049 under the Advanced Distributed Simulation Technology 2 ADST 2 contract administered by the U.S. Army Simulation Training and Instrumentation Command STRICOM. U.S. Army Aviation Center USAAVNC, Fort Rucker, AL sponsored the initial work. Army National Guard and PEO Aviation provided additional funds. The BICEP-TC grew from previously reported work of the Ft. Hood deployment. It replaced Government furnished equipment GFE with contractor provided items for the Mission Control Center MCC, added the third manned simulator, refined the final packaging, hardware and software of the Reconfigurable Tactical Trainers RTT, and integrated everything in a 53 foot commercial trailer. The package has been used in cooperative training environments with the Close Combat Tactical Trainer CCTT, both fixed site and mobile units through a BICEP-TC network gateway. The system has deployed to several Army National Guard sites for training and has validated the concepts of the Aviation Combined Arms Tactical Trainer AVCATT. It has been used for train-up of forces deploying to Bosnia.
