The Corps Battle Simulation program simulates battle conditions on a theaterwide basis, with live people taking the command posts.

It is tailored to 16 potential conflict regions, including the Balkans, the Caribbean, Korea and the Middle East. The system's map data includes elevation details so hills can be used to hide from enemy forces or to prevent detection by line-of-site radar.

The system can be operated in standalone mode for training within Army commands or in linked mode for battlefield command training simulations linking all the armed services.

An Army division commander training his staff on a minor mission would use standalone mode. The session generally would require a handful of role players and last a few hours.

To train a theater commander and staff, as many as 20,000 role players can participate in simulations that last two weeks.

The system models resources such as ground troops, helicopters, aircraft, artillery, engineering equipment, radar systems, ships, submarines, munitions and supply convoys. It also incorporates variables such as weather, terrain, vegetation, time of day, battlefield smoke and the availability of fuel, food and munitions.
