IITs are small-unit training ranges consisting of urban structures finished and decorated to replicate geo-specific locations. Unique from first generation MOUT training facilities, individual feedback is enhanced by the ranges’ integration and pairing with direct fire training systems, virtual simulation screens and windows, and video instrumentation for after action review to create a small unit training range on par with modern crew simulators. Integration of additional live training instrumentation systems, and live role players is accomplished by exercise design. The indoor and outdoor training environments highly replicate current operational theaters by stimulating all senses to stress small-unit actions and the small unit leader’s tactical, moral, and ethical decision making within the context of operational culture.
IITs provide a small-unit decision and rehearsal training range for Squad and Fire Team capstone training and evaluation in support of Pre-deployment Training Program (PTP) Phase III. Training lessons learned are also collected to form requirements basis for the Marine Corps’ future Squad Immersive Training Environment.
This effort uses existing Marine Corps-wide procurement vehicles to provide Home Station MOUT non-live fire structures and After Action Review. Developed immersive effects initially fielded only to IITs will also be applies to Home Station MOUT training ranges when company and battalion training objectives warrant the training benefit derived. The program is in the process of finalizing the design in support of the Outdoor IIT facility in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.
