Abstract : KERNEL BLITZ '95 (KB 95) was conducted 3-6 April 1995. The Navy had over 23 ships, numerous aircraft, and 12,000 personnel at sea for this exercise. Simulation participants included five Defense Simulation Internet (DSI) node sites and three backside sites. In this exercise, live units and simulation systems were successfully integrated into a Synthetic Theater of War (STOW). The objective of KB 95 was to improve the ability of Naval Expeditionary Forces to operate effectively, as a total force, in a joint, littoral environment. KERNEL BLITZ Interactive Training Support (KBITS), the simulation portion of the exercise, provided a simulated carrier battle group (CVBG), geo-transformation of Surface Mine Counter Measure (SMCM) forces operating in the Gulf of Mexico, and air, land, and sea opposing forces (OPFOR). KEITS' objective was to enable naval forces to train in a realistic force structure, demonstrate the capability to enrich training by combining afloat and ashore training activities, and provide the infrastructure to more realistically train in a joint, littoral environment. Simulations were provided by the following: Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) Battle Force Tactical Training (BF'TT) Program; Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) Semi-Automated Forces (SAF) Program Modular Semi-Automated Forces (ModSAF); Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) Combined Team Trainer Mode (CTTM) Program; Naval Air Warfare Center - Aircraft Division (NAWC-AD) Air Combat Environment Test and Evaluation Facility (ACETEF) E-2C simulator; and Program Engineering Office Mine In Shore Warfare (PEO MlW/SPAWAR-32) MCM C41 Joint Maritime Command Information System (JIMCIS) Program.
