To provide unit commanders and institutions with an automated, low-overhead toolkit of constructive simulation applications for training units from company to division.
The Army Low Overhead Training Toolkit (ALOTT) provides homestation mission command training capabilities that bridge the training gap between large-scale JLCCTC-supported exercises and non-simulation supported unit training cycles. It is a collection of products designed to help train tactical unit commanders and staffs on the key elements of the Military Decision Making Process (MDMP) without the investment of significant numbers of support personnel and equipment. It is designed to bring enhanced command and staff training at the “crawl” and “walk” phases of the Army Mission Command Training Strategy.
ALOTT consists of four key applications:
Homestation Enabling Low-overhead Integrated eXercise (HELIX) is the staff exercise driver. It provides full-spectrum scenarios involving major combat operations to train commanders and unit staffs collectively.
Division eXercise Training and Readiness System (DXTRS) is the individual leader/small group trainer. It provides full-spectrum scenarios involving major combat operations to train staff officers and NCOs as individuals or in small groups.
UrbanSim is the stability and support operations trainer. It provides commanders and staffs familiarity with intense situational leadership challenges encountered during stability and civil support operations.
Metis is the attack the network trainer. It provides Improvised Explosive Device (IED) insurgent network scenarios designed to allow commanders and staffs the opportunity to reduce the IED network’s effectiveness.
