3 LVC-IA and Infrastructure Defined
The LVC-IA and Infrastructure consists of two mutually dependent components. The LVC Integrating Architecture is a network-centric linkage that collects, retrieves and exchanges data among Live Instrumentation, Virtual Simulators, and Constructive Simulations as well as Joint and Army Battle Command Systems (BCS). This architecture provides the common protocols, specifications, standards and interfaces that help standardize common LVC components and tools required for interoperability of LVC components for simulation/stimulation (SIM/STIM) of unit Battle Command Systems for mission rehearsals and training. The Live Virtual Constructive Integrating Architecture defines “how” information is exchanged among the LVC domains and Battle Command Systems. The LVC Integrating Architecture includes common LVC components such as Enterprise AAR, C2 Adapters, Terrain Databases, Multi-level Security, and Hardware/Software. The Live Virtual Constructive Training Infrastructure provides the “means” for communicating, exchanging data and networking for all of the LVC domains. The LVC infrastructure includes installation’s foundational elements and components needed to perform net-centric battle command training and includes: Facilities; Power; Communications (RF/Fiber) Networks; Training Support Systems (TADSS); Personnel and Equipment; Resources; and Management Structure and Organization. LVC-IA, along with an associated installation’s supporting Training Infrastructure, are mutually dependent on each other to create an LVC Integrated Training Environment. The end-state goal of the LVC-IA and Infrastructure is to enable an LVC Integrated Training Environment that approximates the Operating Environment and provides Value-Added training and Mission Rehearsal opportunities to Commanders and units

6 LVC-IA Development Strategy
The LVC-IA will be realized using an incremental development approach. The capabilities defined in the LVC-IA approved Initial Capabilities Document (ICD) & Capabilities Development Document (CDD) will be parsed into specific increments of technology that provide military utility Increment 1 development will begin upon successful completion of Milestone B

10 LVC-IA Planned CONUS Fielding
Ft. Lewis Ft. Drum Ft. Carson Ft. Knox Ft. Campbell Ft. Bragg The December 2009 TGOSC approved the 10 CONUS sites to be initially fielded the LVC-IA acquisition program capabilities; the 10 CONUS sites approved are: Ft Bragg, Ft Hood, Ft Bliss, Ft Lewis, Ft Campbell, Ft Carson, Ft Knox, Ft Stewart, Ft Drum, and Camp Shelby. TCM LVCTE along with the MACOMs and installation staffs will now conduct an analysis to determine the exact order of fielding of the LVC-IA capabilities. There are impacts on installation infrastructure requirements such as networks, training facilities, and TADSS that the LVC ITE requires. Current plan is to field 2 OCONUS sites to include USAREUR & USARPAC. Ft. Stewart Ft. Bliss Camp Shelby Ft. Hood As of DEC 2009

16 Take Away The LVC-IA MS B Decision is planned for Sep 2009.
OneSAF will support the LVC-IA Increment 1 Program. OneSAF is supporting the PEO STRI I2 LVC Integration Cell initiative. We understand that OneSAF has not been validated by the TEMO domain. It will be key that the User community utilize the system to provide feedback to PM OneSAF for product improvement. Key Point: In a resource constrained environment the Army will not be able to train as it currently does. The integration of Live, Virtual, and Constructive TADSS with Battle Command will enable larger, more robust, and rich training events at reduced cost.
