Abstract : Surface warfare training for the Royal Australian Navy is undertaken at HMAS WATSON in Sydney using operations room simulators. These facilities, the Integrated Operations Team Training Facility (IOTTF) for the DDG/FFG assets and the ANZAC Ship Combat System Team Trainer (CSTT) are undergoing significant upgrades. However, these trainers need to be linked to provide effective task force command team training for the RAN's surface warfare fleet. The feasibility of linking the simulators using Distributed Interactive Simulation (DIS) is discussed. The requirements for providing DIS gateways for both the IOTTF and the CSTT are examined and the infrastructure needed to run DIS exercises in Australia is investigated. Linking the trainers will offer sophisticated and effective command team training by providing a more realistic training environment with two manned simulated operations rooms. Utilising the established DIS standards would also allow these simulators to be linked to the outside world for a wider range of tactical training. (AN)
