The TWEBDAR training project was one of several Live Fire Test and Training Initiatives sponsored and funded by the Office of Live Fire Testing OSDOTELFTE. This project was started as a new initiative seeking to refine and further define known areas where the Live Fire Test Evaluation LFTE data can be used to improve combat operations and warfighting capability. The purpose of the TWEBDAR training project is to provide an efficient and effective method to capture, store, and retrieve Joint Live Fire JLF, LFTE, combat, BDAR, and TWE information that can be applied in a variety of innovative training methods and media to enhance the proficiency of combat maintainers and operators. The focus will be placed on providing many different users convenient ways to access and use this information in a variety of media to meet their peculiar training needs. The first phase of the three-phase joint service effort formulated a concept for identifying and capturing combat and Joint Live Fire JLFLive Fire Test LFT threat warheads and effects TWE and Battle Damage Assessment and Repair data, established what JLF and LFT data currently are available, established required data formats, defined required capabilities for data input and retrieval, and defined the output media that could best meet the customers needs. The final result of the Phase I study was a feasibility demonstration of an archival and retrieval system for the information and products required. Phase I effort, under SURVIAC Technical Area Task Number 98-7, Delivery Order Number 0079, was completed on July 31, 1999. Phases II and III focused on the refinement and finalization of the prototype TWEBDAR Archival and Retrieval AR System and transition to operational use.
