Abstract : This report recommends practices for planning and conducting tactical training using Distributed Interactive Simulation (DIS) technology with multi-Service groups. Groups are geographically separated. The recommendations presented are based on the experience gained from the Multi-Service Distributed Training Testbed (MDT2) -- a testbed designed to develop training opportunities and tools to increase the utility of multi-Service training. MDT2 is a realistic, although synthetic, environment for training with the flexibility to support planning, preparation, execution, and feedback for the multi-Service Close Air Support (CAS) mission. This report combines the knowledge from MDT2-CAS with the authors' knowledge of training into recommendations about how to train best with DIS technology.
