Virtual Battle Experiments (VBE) provide a simulation environment for the testing of algorithms and operating procedures. When multiple platforms are included in the simulation, communication between platforms can also be investigated. For example, when certain data and information are shared between platforms, the result may be the more efficient completion of the simulated mission. In a naval setting, such information may include contact data within the area of operation. However, for this data sharing to take place, the virtual platforms need to reach an agreement on the data structure and content. Research under the auspices of The Technical Cooperation Program, Maritime Systems Group, Technical Panel – One, is investigating the use of the Land Command and Control Information Exchange Data Model (LC2IEDM) for the sharing of data between virtual platforms. This investigation details the data storage within LC2IEDM during VBE-Bravo, conducted in April 2003. For the experiment, the data stored within LC2IEDM includes initial information on the coalition forces, information on enemy forces, and discovered contacts.
