"Two-thirds of the forces on the ground in Baghdad are Iraqi security forces. The feedback...from the population in the areas we've cleared are all very positive about removing the threat of this violence, the performance of the Iraqi security forces, and their confidence in the government."
Brig. Gen. Michael D. Barbero, deputy director of regional operations for the Joint Staff, at a Pentagon news conference Aug. 23, 2006.
Live, Virtual, Constructive (LVC) Training Environment Integration
What is it? The Live, Virtual, Constructive (LVC) Training Environment Integration is enabled by the Live, Virtual, Constructive Integrated Architecture (LVC - IA), which is a set of protocols, specifications, and standards that permit interoperability and integration among LVC components. The LVC - IA product is the multi-echelon, integrated, joint, training and mission rehearsal environment created by combining the live, virtual and constructive environments and stimulating digital Battle Command Systems (BCS) to train leaders, staffs, and units. Generally, the goal is to closely approximate the training environment to the operational environment for full spectrum operations.
- Provide an integrated LVC environment that ensures compatibility and interoperability for all Training Aids, Devices, Simulators, and Simulations and embedded training systems.
- Serve as the mechanism by which commanders, units and individuals can reach for information and data that is available on-demand 24-hours a day, seven days a week.
- Fully embed into the future force BCS and interoperate with Current and Stryker Forces.
- Present a realistic environment where commanders and units can conduct mission planning and rehearsal.
- Link to and stimulate Joint Force BCS.
