Today simulation technology allows warfighters to participate in a continuous training cycle and maintain a high state of combat readiness by using cost-effective simulation alternatives in conjunction with live-fly operations and training missions. Current development of Live, Virtual, and Constructive LVC systems for training and mission rehearsal, the rapid advancement of networking technologies and protocol standardsarchitectures such as Distributed Interactive Simulation DIS and High Level Architecture HLA have all contributed to an environment where highly-distributed training, mission rehearsal, operations support, and multi-force Distributed Mission Operations DMO jointcoalition exercises have become a reality. The objective of this report is to offer guidance on how to progress towards such a highly interoperable, LVC synthetic environment. Corporate LVC interoperability standards, processes, common applications and databases need to be developed so that LVC systems can be appropriately specified, delivered and accepted with an already useable level of corporate interoperability that will enable coalition LVC training out-of-the-box. An AOD, Air Battle Management, Mission Training Centre MTC Capability Concept Demonstrator, that will provide guidance to assist the RAAF to migrate to a highly interoperable, DMO compliant, LVC synthetic environment including a coalition training focussed, RAAF MTC, has been proposed.
