Abstract:

Battle Lab Simulation Collaboration Environment BLSCE is a U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command TRADOC initiative that was developed to support concept development and experimentation of Future Combat Systems FCS in a closed, distributed, simulation-rich environment. The configuration, maintenance, administrative and security responsibilities have been assigned to the Battle Command Battle Laboratory Gordon BCBL-G. This paper will specifically address the network services that are provided to facilitate the Command and Control C2 aspect of every future force experiment. It will describe BCBL-Gs primary function of providing a secure wide area network that supports a distributed, simulation-rich environment. Additionally, this paper will describe the administrative services provided over the BLSCE to include voice over IP, video teleconferencing, and a web portal. Furthermore, a brief description of BCBL-G s NOSC responsibilities will be provided to include antivirus protection, intrusion detection, authentication, and accreditation, surrounding an enterprise-sized WAN. In conclusion, the paper will preview future evolutionary refinements anticipated for the BLSCE and its continued role as the environment for evaluating the Army future.
