To provide the indirect fire capability and fill the weapon systems training gap in live Fire force-on-force training across the Army to include the development of the initial architecture and standards for indirect fire to ensure commonality and interoperability between components.
The OneTESS system will provide a live, precision, combined arms Indirect Fire (IDF) Force-on-Force (FoF) training capability for brigade and below exercises, at homestation, Combat Maneuver Training Centers and deployed sites, and will be interoperable with Instrumentable-Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System (I-MILES) laser-based systems for the Direct Fire (DF) capability. It will provide realistic, real-time casualty effects for tactical engagement training scenarios and have the ability to integrate with training instrumentation systems such as the Homestation Instrumentation Training System (HITS) and the Combat Training Center-Instrumentation System (CTC-IS) for data collection to be included in After Action Reviews (AARs). The OneTESS requirements have been de-scoped and will focus on three increments:
Simulation of an Infantry Brigade Combat Team (IBCT) mortar capability for a 60mm, 81mm, 120mm mortars and forward observer visualization
Simulation of artillery capability and continued development of Heavy Brigade Combat Team (HBCT)/Stryker Brigade Combat Team (SBCT) mortar capability.
Automated casualty assessment card and automated maintenance assessment.
