Home Station Instrumentation Training System (HITS)

PM ST

Mission

To provide a transportable instrumentation system to enhance collective live training at home station up to Battalion level. Provides Exercise Management, Monitoring and Control. Provides Training Performance Feedback through onsite After Action Reviews (AAR)

Description

Home Station Instrumentation Training System is a transportable system able to enhance collective live training at home stations up to the Battalion level. HITS provides instrumentation through automated tools for unit leaders and designated observer-controller/trainers (OCT) to give performance feedback to training units. HITS is an integrated system of computing devices, digital map displays, GPS based tracking radios, laser based simulated engagement gear and wireless communication relays that produce, record, and present voice, video, and data. The training performance feedback can be provided through After Action Reviews and Take Home Packages. As part of voice communications, HITS accepts SINCGARs radio transmissions. Since HITS is fully integrated with the Live, Virtual, and Constructive – Integrating Architecture (LVC-IA), it is interoperable with other simulation systems.
