Abstract : The Task Force XXI Digital Training Exercise (DTX) was conducted at the AViation Test Bed (AVTB) at Fort Rucker, AL from February 5 to February 10, 1997. The exercise was conducted as Delivery Order (DO) #0030 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 exercise was sponsored by the Directorate of Training, Doctrine and Simulation (DOTDS), U. S. Army Aviation Center, Fort Rucker, AL. The training exercise utilized virtual simulations integrated with a tactical command and control network to provide training for the TF XXI AViation task force. An AViation task force Tactical Operations Center (AVTOC), Army Airborne Command and Control System (A2C2S), and higher and lower white cells were integrated on a tactical Local Area Network (LAN). A Distributed Interactive Simulation (DIS) LAN was established consisting of manned simulators and Semi Automated forces. The two LANs were connected via the Tactical Simulation Interface Unit (TSIU). Three training scenarios were utilized to train the command and control processes of the 2-4 Aviation Task Force Staff. The scenarios were designed to stress the task forces command and control process in order to prepare the unit for an upcoming TF XXI rotation 97-07 at the National Training Center.
