IEWTPT fills critical intelligence warfighter training gaps at home stations for Human Intelligence (HUMINT), Signals Intelligence (SIGINT), Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) and All Source intelligence. It directly supports individual, crew and collective sustainment training in support of mission command and unified land operations. IEWTPT acts as the key enabler for military intelligence analyst and operator training in a live, virtual and constructive simulation environment. It supports the Intelligence Center of Excellence MI holistic training strategy for both stand-alone and network-enabled training.

The Technical Control Cell is the cornerstone training device of the IEWTPT. It powers SIGINT, GEOINT and All Source capabilities that enable individual and collective training, as well as the network interface to the exercise training environment.

The HUMINT Control Cell provides sustainment training for HUMINT and counterintelligence collectors in an immersive and virtual training environment.
