Abstract : The networking of combat vehicle simulators in SIMNET is a method of collective training that supplements field exercises. This report offers guidance for using the PC-based Unit Performance Assessment System (UPAS) to collect and analyze data from SIMNET exercises. This report is an updated version of ARI Research Product 92-02 accomplished to reflect the addition of new features and utilities during the application of UPAS as a training research tool. Additions to the UPAS include: company-level versions of existing platoon-level displays; a new type of map display (the Fire Fight) to better analyze how fires are distributed over space; a Fire Fight display; an After Action Review (AAR) Presentation Manager to capture, add comments to, and sequence data displays for an AAR or electronic Take Home Package; a mouse interface; the option to display an aggregate icon at platoon level; and the capability to display line-of-sight information.
