Abstract : The Force Protection Experiment III (FPE III) was an experimental exercise conducted at the Mounted Warfare Test Bed (MWTB) at Fort Knox, KY from October 28 to December 5, 1996. The experiment was performed as Delivery Order (DO) #0019 under the Lockheed Martin Advanced Distributed Simulation Technology II (ADST II) Contract administered by the U.S. Army Simulation, Training, and Instrumentation Command (STRICOM). The experiment was sponsored by three Government agencies: Program Manager, Combat Identification; Tank Automotive & Armaments Command (TACOM) Research, Development, & Engineering Center (TARDEC); and the Mounted Maneuver Battle Lab (MMBL), Fort Knox, KY. The experiment utilized a synthetic environment that employed virtual simulations to depict an Armor Company executing four basic company-level scenarios in realistic combat situations in various experimental configurations. The scenarios were developed to be on the Fort Hood terrain database, and included Attack, Defend and Movement to Contact vignettes. These scenanos were designed to produce survivability events, provide fratricide risk, and induce the commanders to make tactical decisions which affected battle outcomes.
