Successful U.S. Army / South Korean Exercises Rely on Lockheed Martin Simulation Technology

ORLANDO, Fla., Novem­ber 29, 2011, Novem­ber 29th, 2011 — The U.S. Army and Repub­lic of Korea Army suc­cess­ful­ly con­duct­ed a large-scale, dis­trib­uted com­mand post train­ing exer­cise with more than 250 par­tic­i­pants using tech­nol­o­gy devel­oped by Lock­heed Mar­tin.

The Full Spec­trum Exer­cise (FSX) con­clud­ed this month, lever­ag­ing the Warfight­ers’ Sim­u­la­tion (WARSIM) and the WARSIM Intel­li­gence Mod­el as the major com­po­nents of the Joint Land Com­po­nent Con­struc­tive Train­ing Capa­bil­i­ty (JLCCTC) Mul­ti-Res­o­lu­tion Fed­er­a­tion-WAR­SIM train­ing sys­tem. The test was con­duct­ed for the U.S. Army Pro­gram Exec­u­tive Office of Sim­u­la­tion, Train­ing and Instru­men­ta­tion.

Through WARSIM, bat­tle com­man­ders, staffs and units from the U.S. Army 2nd Infantry Divi­sion and South Korea were able to con­nect across numer­ous loca­tions in Kansas, Vir­ginia and Korea for the eight-day, 180-hour exer­cise. As part of JLCCTC, the WARSIM pro­gram is designed to sim­u­late all types of con­flict – from major the­ater-lev­el oper­a­tions to sta­bil­i­ty and sup­port mis­sions – at the brigade, joint and coali­tion lev­els.

Mis­sion suc­cess large­ly depends on train­ing togeth­er,” said Jim Craig, vice pres­i­dent of train­ing sys­tems at Lock­heed Martin’s Glob­al Train­ing and Logis­tics busi­ness unit. “WARSIM is a reli­able, adapt­able sys­tem that makes it pos­si­ble for com­man­ders and staff to con­duct essen­tial train­ing exer­cis­es that sim­ply couldn’t take place live because of cost, dis­tance and logis­tics.”

In addi­tion to the FSX, the U.S. Army and South Korea con­duct­ed anoth­er exer­cise with WARSIM, called Warpath II, in Octo­ber. That exer­cise linked more than 200 par­tic­i­pants across Hawaii, Vir­ginia and three sep­a­rate loca­tions in South Korea. The exer­cise last­ed 164 hours and includ­ed both a low-inten­si­ty phase and a high-inten­si­ty, force-on-force phase, which enabled par­tic­i­pants to expe­ri­ence real­is­tic warfight­ing sce­nar­ios with­in a coali­tion envi­ron­ment.

Head­quar­tered in Bethes­da, Md., Lock­heed Mar­tin is a glob­al secu­ri­ty com­pa­ny that employs about 126,000 peo­ple world­wide and is prin­ci­pal­ly engaged in the research, design, devel­op­ment, man­u­fac­ture, inte­gra­tion and sus­tain­ment of advanced tech­nol­o­gy sys­tems, prod­ucts and ser­vices. The Corporation’s 2010 sales from con­tin­u­ing oper­a­tions were $45.8 bil­lion.
