Supporting the Joint Army Experimentation Program as Subject Matter Expert and technical support in the area of Proof of Concept testing for Army tactical operational communications systems and networks for the Current Force, LandWarNet Concept, Modular Forces and Future Force Army using the Battle Lab Collaborative Simulation Environment (BLCSE).
In accordance with the statement of work, developed simulation training for Army systems such as JNN, SPOF, FBCB2, MCS and other ABCS capacities. Provided instruction in the areas of communications and information technology systems, training aids devices, simulators and simulations for current and future systems (i.e., the STRYKER Brigade Combat Team (SBCT), modularity, Network operations (NETOPS), information assurance, network management and security, homeland defense, and the fielding of digital C4ISR systems). Assisted with development input to Army requirements documentation while working with Combat developers, program managers, TRADOC system managers, and HQDA. Assisted training Developers with development on New Equipment Systems training documentation and performed all associated tasks involved in fielding to all Army proponents. Assisted with development of documentation for government use in the management, strategic planning, and coordination of analysis, design, and development of training programs. Provided COHORT training for the SBCT at the Signal Center and other TRADOC centers and schools. Assisted with design, development, and coordination of new training programs and products, to include computer-based training (CBT) and distant learning lessons or modules. Assisted with coordination of new equipment training data and training program impacts, documented routine technical problems and/or recommended corrective actions concerning new equipment training. Provided design analysis for transitioning future Interactive Multimedia Instruction (IMI) training from Flash-based production to non-proprietary, more accessible HTML5 content.
