The Virtual Distributed Laboratory for Modeling and Simulation VDLMS Science and Technology Objective STO initiated a First Application 1st App effort in 2003 to baseline the use of legacy distributed simulations within the RDE Command to support Future Combat Systems FSC and Objective Force experimentation. This paper discusses the lessons learned in connecting the Soldier-In-The-Loop SITL crew stations developed as part of the LSIs UCD with the Networked Fires experiment. The goal is to examine the feasibility of using Armed Reconnaissance Vehicles ARVs as forward observers for Networked Fires. Performance data will be measured identifying the ability to remotely manage the role of forward observer for Networked Fires from ARVs. While the 1st App event itself is classified, including specific results regarding the performance of Networked Fires, this paper will be an unclassified discussion, focusing on a small FCS tactical and technical performance thread for a proposed design.
