The Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) recently began using Elbit Systems’ Brigade and Battlegroup Mission Training Center (B2MTC) for a series of brigade-level exercises, the company announced on 20 July.

The new training centre immerses commanders, headquarters staff and two subordinate command levels in high-fidelity combat situations in actual battle zone territory.  B2MTC presents commanders and staff with a realistic operational picture, enables them to operate a range of assets, compels them to respond to real-time changes and requires them to cope with tactical communications that are realistically impacted by diverse effects.

Military operations are becoming increasingly complex, while large-scale exercise opportunities occur less frequently due to cost, logistics and environmental constraints. Elbit Systems’ new trainer provides armed forces with a flexible, scalable solution to train commanders and staff, together with combat support elements, for contemporary multi-domain warfare. 

Supporting large-scale geo-specific terrain, dynamic weather and thousands of virtual entities, B2MTC offers a uniquely engaging training experience for more than a hundred trainees at a time. The system emulates the realistic flow of information between levels of command and from a range of intelligence, target acquisition and fire functions, enabling complex, joint combat scenarios to be exercised. In-service tactical communication is simulated, with performance realistically impacted by cyber, bandwidth, terrain, weather and other effects. The exercise director can introduce dynamic, on-the-fly changes into the simulation, allowing commanders to test their ability to react and adapt to the challenges of battle. The after-action review and debrief mode offers synchronised playback of the entire exercise, providing trainees with meaningful insight into the consequences of decisions and actions.
