Abstract:

The Close Combat Tactical Trainer CCTT Cost and Training Effectiveness Analysis CTEA addressed the training capabilities, and using the life cycle costs estimated potential cost pay backs of the proposed CCTT. The CCTT simulator trains armor and mechanized infantry units in Army Training Evaluation Program ARTEP Mission Training Plans MTP tasks. The analysis was conducted in support of a milestone III ASARC decision on CCTT. The analysis determined the CCTT has the potential to train tasks related to 1 command, control, and communication, 2 maneuver and navigation, and 3 teamwork and leadership. The CCTT has the potential to train, to a lesser degree certain procedures related to gunnery, target acquisition and driving the vehicle. Due to the fidelity of the surrogate system, SIMNET-T, there may be some adverse impacts on training these subordinate tasks. The higher fidelity CCTT has the potential to remedy this problem. The CCTT has the potential to be a cost and training effective addition to the Armys training program. It is likely that the active component AC portion of the CCTT life cycle cost LCC will be fully paid back during the service life for either a companyteam COTM or battaliontask force BNTF level acquisition. The extent of the pay back indicated by the analysis must be validated during CCTT testing.
