As one of the initial participants in last year’s Operation Blended Warrior (OBW), Marine Corps Systems Command’s Program Manager for Training Systems (PM TRASYS) continues their involvement this year by providing representative training systems integrated to illustrate how Live, Virtual and Constructive simulations can provide collective training to enhance combat readiness. This will include participation in the Amphibious Assault vignettes of OBW with our Combined Arms Command and Control Trainer Upgrade System (CACCTUS) and Deployable Virtual Training Environment (DVTE) training systems.
In addition, PM TRASYS will demonstrate the latest version of ‘Animatronics’ technology used to provide immersive ‘role players’ as well as graphical displays of its Products and Services. This year we are increasing our contribution to OBW by using CACCTUS and Command and Control Personal Computer (C2PC) for the first time to generate the Common Operational Picture (COP) for the entire event.
C2P2 brings the tactical picture to a desktop and is supported by robust planning tools, decision aids and display capabilities. It provides real-time situational awareness and the immersion that’s mission critical for America’s military operations.
C2PC is a much needed application to enable sharing and editing the COP across multiple workstations and among several agencies. It can also support operations in moving vehicles and work over tactical radios.
This effort is a great opportunity to utilize C2PC and test CACCTUS’s ability to generate the messages needed to stimulate C2PC for a large exercise.
