GSC Overview

The Global Simulation Capability (GSC) consists of current Army simulation capabilities on existing Army and Joint networks in order to support Home Station command post exercises (CPX) primarily for Division and above headquarters across the Force as directed by ARFORGEN. The GSC attains initial operating capability NLT 1st quarter FY14 by conducting a Division level CPX. AT final operating capability in 2024 (T), the GSC will support CTCs, Joint and Experimentation events, and the Generating Force.

Providing high fidelity constructive simulations for Mission Command training.


» Provides high resolution constructive simulation and network capability in support of mission command training of the Army Mission Command Training Program, US Forces Command, and the US Army National Guard.

» Supports the other RSCs as needed and synchronizes supporting efforts between RSC-USAREUR and RSC-USARPAC.

The GSC exercise support section is a team of competent professionals capable of creating, exporting, and providing world-class simulation support to meet commander home station mission command training requirements.

GSC Capabilities

Capabilities Delivered:

» Operate 5 of the Army's planned 6 high resolution constructive simulation suites.

» Direct supporting responsibility to approximately 85% of the Army's division and higher echelons in an estimated 25 major training exercises per year.

Home Station Training

The GSC serves to help commanders and their staffs understand the steps in planning, developing, and executing complex staff training by utilizing a constructive simulation to conduct a command post exercise (CPX). This results in a staff better trained in the management of plans and operations in a defined scenario developed to meet the commander's training objectives.

The shift from prescriptive training events to unit developed ones will enable commanders to tailor design the goals and milestones they desire to accomplish in order to meet METL requirements.

While each unit and homestation is different with unique capabilities, the GSC's exercise support team assists in identifying critical tasks and areas associated with exercise design and execution.
