The Home Station Instrumentation Training System (HITS) is designed to enhance training at home stations by instrumenting force-on-force live training exercises for battalion-and-below units.
HITS includes automated tools to establish medium fidelity cause-and-effect analysis of battalion-and-below collective training performance in unified land operations. It is an integrated system of computer software and hardware; workstations; databases; voice, video, and data recording; production and presentation equipment; interface devices; and communication networks. It provides the tools for the Observer-Controller, Trainer and Operators to collect, analyze and present training performance feedback in the After Action Review (AAR) and a unit take-home package. HITS is a transportable system that can be rapidly deployed to support field training exercises. It operates at Mission Assurance Category III Sensitive, and produces Controlled Unclassified Information. HITS provides the live domain for the Live, Virtual, Constructive (LVC) Integrated Training Environment established by the LVC-Integrating Architecture Program. HITS is part of the Live Training Transformation – Family of Training Systems and is based on the Common Training Instrumentation Architecture.
BENEFIT TO THE WARFIGHTER
HITS tracks Soldiers and vehicles while collecting their real-time casualty assessment information during battalion level force-on-force collective training exercises. This allows the HITS Exercise Control to monitor and record the participant’s position and the results of who shot whom, when, where and with what outcome.
