The WARSIM 2000 Intelligence Module [WIM] is a module within a software simulation system known as WARSIM 2000. Warfighter's Simulation (WARSIM) 2000 is the next-generation in U.S. Army command and staff training. It will use advanced Modeling and Simulation (M&S) techniques to train U.S. Army battle staffs at all echelons, from Battalion to Echelons Above Corps (EAC). It is being developed to replace the current legacy simulation systems Corps Battle Simulation (CBS), Brigade/Battalion Battle Simulation (BBS), and Tactical Simulation (TACSIM).
WIM is a part of the overall WARSIM development, and will replace the current Intelligence Battlefield Operating System (BOS) functionality being performed by TACSIM. However, as a new, advanced system, WIM will be superior to TACSIM. It is expected to be a part of the Joint Simulation System (JSIMS) effort, which will provide command and staff training to all of the services (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines Corps ). WIM will work in conjuction with the National Simulation (NATSIM) system, which will provide National Intelligence for JSIMS.
WIM is in the Request for Proposal stage, awaiting bids from competitive contracting companies and teams. Proposals will be evaluated by a Government Source Selec tion Evaluation Board (SSEB) to award the WIM contract to a successful bidder. The system will be developed by the U.S. Army Simulation, Training, and Instrumentation Command (STRICOM) in Orlando, Fl, under the guidance of the training aud ience representative, the National Simulation Center (NSC), in Ft. Leavenworth, KS. WIM will follow the proposed acquisition and fielding strategies of WARSIM, JSIMS, and NATSIM - Initial Operating Capa bility (IOC) by 1999, and Final Operating Capability (FOC) by 2003.
