Several years ago the Dismounted Battlespace Battlelab DBBL and the U.S. Army Infantry Center USAIC identified the need for immersive virtual simulation. In February of 1994 DBBL hosted an Individual Combatant and Simulation Symposium to focus attention on the critical requirement to improve the representation of individual combatants across all modeling and simulation domains, for the purpose of improved warfighting, training, and combat development. These requirements prompted the Simulation Training and Instrumentation Command STRICOM to articulate the need for DWN in the Individual Combatant Simulation Technology Transfer Plan in November of 1995. This in turn resulted in the original DWN project, awarded under STRICOMs ADST 2 contract in June, 1996. Lockheed Martin is the prime contractor and system integrator for ADST 2. The primary objective of this project was the integration of a number of existing virtual simulation systems into an interoperable network of individual soldier simulators and simulations. Virtual Individual Combatant Simulators VICs developed by STRICOM, TRAC-WSMR, NPS and NAWC-TSD were integrated with DI SAF, a modified version of the Marine Corps IC SAF, and installed at the Land Warrior Testbed LWTB at Fort Benning in May of 1997.
