Abstract : The Air-to-Ground Battlefield Combat Identification (ATG-BCI) experiment was an exercise conducted at the Aviation Testbed at Fort Rucker, Alabama in August 1996. The exercise was sponsored by the Program Manager Combat Identification (PM-CI) and the U.S. Army Simulation, Training, and Instrumentation Command (STRICOM), Orlando, FL. The experiment employed virtual simulation to depict an aviation task force conducting operations during various scenarios. The purpose of the ATG-BCI was to explore the potential of new battlefield combat identification systems. The new technologies being explored included the Enhanced Battlefield Combat Identification System (EBCIS), Enhanced Forward Air Controller (EFAC), Situational Awareness Data Link (SADL), Forward Observer/Forward Air Controller Plus(FO/FAC+), Situational Awareness Beacon with Reply (SABER), and SINCGARS SIP+.
