    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense School is receiving a new training device from the Missile Defense Agency for the Command and Control, Battle Management and Communications Training System.

    The new C2BMC trainer, also known as Mission Specific Vendor Plug-in, or MSVP, will integrate the next generation of C2BMC capabilities and will support training for the next generation of C2BMC software planned for deployment later this year. The MSVP will be utilized to train sensor managers, long-range discrimination radar, ground-based fire control, missile defense officers, and Joint Functional Component Command for Integrated Missile Defense operators.

    Clem Morris, Missile Defense Training Division chief for the school said this new system will provide the school an enhanced capability to train personnel with the latest software upgrades.

    “In the past we had to wait six to eight months after a system software/hardware release before training students on the upgrades,” Morris said. “Now we can provide that training much sooner.”

    The MSVP system will be located in the new Sensor Management Training Facility and will consist of 16 workstations in two classrooms. It will support the training missions of warfighters from the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command, U.S. Northern Command, U.S. Strategic Command, U.S. Space Command and U.S. Space Force.

    Kale Murray, course manager for the AN/TPY-2 (FBM) Sensor Manager Qualification Course, said the MSVP will take training to the next level.

    “The MSVP will allow critical tasks to be trained through normal scenarios, while allowing customizable inputs to be added on the fly to enhance training of our operators,” Murray said. “Due to the nature of the software, we can identify weaknesses that students may be experiencing, and create a training situation in the moment to target weaknesses a student may be having.

    “Unlike previous training systems, the MSVP allows instructors to develop and execute scenarios and modify them while running exercises,” Murray added. “It also allows the trainer to rewind, fast forward and preview past scenarios to better train students.”

    In preparation for the new trainer and new training capability, the school has assisted the U.S. Space Force long-range discrimination radar operator group in developing and refining the new radar system’s tactics, techniques and procedures. The final product acceptance test will take place in late August and will be released to the warfighters later this year.
