Brig. Gen. Maria Gervais, Combined Arms Center – Training deputy commanding general, has said the U.S. Army developed a new synthetic training environment designed to help forces simulate operations in urban environments, C4ISR & Networks reported Wednesday.
Henry Kenyon writes Gervais noted at the annual Association of the U.S. Army meeting in Washington that the STE will offer multi-echelon training that can be optimized for human performance.
Gervais said STE creates an immersive environment that will help troops familiarize themselves with an operational environment prior to deployment as well as integrate mission data and site reports from deployed forces for a focused training experience.
She added that STE looks to address limitations of traditional simulator technology and utilize current simulators that could work well for specific types of training.
