Position Description:

Synopsis: The overall goal of the OE TSC Training Division is to replicate complex Operational Environments (OEs) in training venues such as Army Combat Training Centers, Mobilization Training Centers, and Home Station training areas. This is done by geo-rectifying battlefield events that happen in the real world onto the training area terrain. For example, a report of a complex ambush that occurred in Afghanistan is transformed in time and space so that it appears to have occurred at the correct time and location to support training at various home station training venues and mobilization training centers. The OE TSC Training Division locates real world operational events from a variety of data sources then transforms those events using state of the art messaging system applications. The transformed data can then be displayed on standard Army command and control systems (i.e. Distributed Common Ground Station – Army (DCGS-A)) presenting operators, in a training environment, with a realistic replication of information available on the real battlefield. This allows soldiers the ability to hone their battle staff skills against their future deployment or contingency area of operation environment.
