The ITC used the DCGS-A multi-function workstation with the iLOD data feed to identify where HVTs were located and communicated directly with 1SBCT collection managers and GEOINT analysts via PSI Chat services to support their targeting process from sensor to shooter.
* During the development of the virtual scenario on iLOD, the intelligence planning team did not provide adequate time to communicate requirements and construct the enemy order of battle to IEWTPT (1).
* By the conclusion of the exercise, the iLOD proved successful at pushing the USMTF traffic, FMV, and GMTI.
In many respects, using ILOD in a well-structured and dynamic exercise is the first instance where leaders have the ability to ensure Soldiers learn and develop in a true training model, as opposed to trial and error in the operational environment.
In support of the intelligence training requirements described above, ILOD features a web-based collaborative environment for developing and conducting exercises.
During the exercise, ILOD sends out timely, relevant data to the DCGS-A via the Data Distribution Service (DDS) as if the data were being provided by collection assets and adjacent units.
ILOD has been used in section/team exercises at several locations across the Army and is available at all current IEWTPT fielded locations.
The IEWTPT ILOD provides intelligence analysts with the capability to train in a customizable, realistic environment to more effectively support a commander's training objectives.
