The Air Assault Expeditionary Force (AAEF) Experiment: Examining the Impact of Technology on Battle Command Using Live, Virtual and Constructive Simulation

The AAEF Campaign of Discovery Experiments is the principal series of prototype discovery experiments conducted within the US Army. The campaign was originally approved for four annual excursions, 2004-2007, but has been tentatively extended through 2013. Spiral C, the most recent event in the campaign, was third in the series of ten events, and was designed to examine, evaluate and implement, as appropriate, new technologies into today’s transforming forces.

LVCAR Enhancements for Using Gateways

The Live Virtual Constructive (LVC) Architecture Roadmap (LVCAR) report, sponsored by the Modeling and Simulation (M&S) Steering Committee, recommended several actions to promote the reuse of common M&S capabilities and to foster common formats and policy goals to promote LVC interoperability.

LVCAR Enhancements for Selecting Gateways

The Live Virtual Constructive (LVC) Architecture Roadmap (LVCAR) report, sponsored by the Modeling and Simulation (M&S) Steering Committee, recommended several actions to promote the reuse of common M&S capabilities and to foster common formats and policy goals to promote LVC interoperability. One of these recommended actions pertained to the development of common gateway capabilities.

A Systems Engineering Perspective on the Development and Execution of Multi-Architecture LVC Environments

During LVCAR Phase II (Roadmap Implementation), this product was developed as an overlay on top of the IEEE P1730 Distributed Simulation Engineering and Execution Process (DSEEP).

3CE Modeling & Simulation Environment Reuse for Test and Evaluation

This paper focuses on the development and implementation of the common M&S environment developed to support a variety of FY09 SO E-IBCT test and evaluation events, and discusses how this nests within the overall DCAI&S concept, and can assist in supporting future training, testing, and experimentation activities across the FCS Program.

Recent Advances in Ground Vehicle Target Simulators and Surrogates

There have been recent advances in low-cost target surrogates for T&E that have been successfully validated and accredited for use by certain programs. These targets can bridge the gap between non-realistic, “whatever’s handy on the range” targets and actual threat vehicles by providing test-specific signature elements to meet validation and accreditation requirements and avoid the need to use real threat vehicles.

Realistic Threat Ground Vehicle Targets for Test & Evaluation

Since the whole purpose of a weapon system is to detect, identify, engage, and destroy a threat, realistic threat targets are critical to the world of T&E and threat ground vehicle targets are the ones where the rubber meets the road (literally) on modern battlefields.
