MILTECH
Lockheed Martin to Provide US Army with Simulation-Based Command and Battle Staff Training System
by Staff Writers
Orlando FL (SPX) Apr 04, 2013


For the Army's Joint Land Component Constructive Training Capability (JLCCTC), Lockheed Martin will integrate seven command and battle staff training tools into a single simulation-based system over the next five years.

The U.S. Army selected Lockheed Martin to design an advanced simulation-based training system that will ensure Army, joint and coalition leaders are prepared to act decisively in the evolving operational environment.

The Joint Land Component Constructive Training Capability (JLCCTC) system will support training exercises that replicate complex operational scenarios, preparing commanders and their staff to direct military operations. The indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract has a $146 million ceiling value over five years.

JLCCTC integrates seven current command and battle staff training tools into a single system and presents simulated enemy and friendly forces so that commanders and their staff can practice making decisions during high pressure military missions.

The system also supports the Army's strategy for an integrated training environment that combines live, virtual and computer-generated training elements.

"Integrating seven training components provides sustainment cost savings and makes it easier and faster to generate training scenarios," said Jim Weitzel, vice president of training solutions for Lockheed Martin's Mission Systems and Training business.

"JLCCTC will be built with a modeling and simulation-based architecture to present data driven scenarios for relevant, adaptable training."

In addition to integration, Lockheed Martin developed the Warfighter's Simulation (WARSIM) component of JLCCTC. In 2012, WARSIM supported 14 training exercises and trained more than 22,000 commanders, their staffs and units. Lockheed Martin's industry team of large and small businesses has experience with all components that will be incorporated into the system.
