Distributed Mission Operations Center Of Excellence Wins Second Air Force Simulation Award
Orlando, FL, 03-MAY-05 -- The Distributed Mission Operations Center of Excellence (DMOC) operated by Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) at Kirtland Air Force Base, NM, has won the 2004 U.S. Air Force Modeling and Simulation Award in the training category for its performance during exercise Virtual Flag.
The facility is the lead Distributed Mission Operations (DMO) integrator for theater-level, full spectrum combat training, test, and mission rehearsal. Lockheed Martin is responsible for operations, maintenance, development, studies and analysis on behalf of the Air Force. Virtual Flag is a joint service exercise, held quarterly, that train hundreds of Air Force, Army, Navy and Marine warfighters.
“No other organization can plan, link together, and execute immersive combat training scenarios using live, virtual, and constructive entities to achieve consistent realistic training on this grand scale, stated Lt. Col. Gordon D. Phillips, commander of the 705th Exercise Control Squadron, which oversees the DMOC for the Air Force. The results of this capability are increased joint readiness and a constant flow of new warfighter requirements to expand this training transformation.”
The DMOC also received the Air Force's Modeling and Simulation Award in 2003 and was named the Department of Defense’s Best Modeling and Simulation Training Program in 2001. The center develops and supports numbered Air Force scale events with robustly populated constructive theaters for the Combat Air Forces (CAF). It supports six primary applications: focused CAF-DMO training for the Air Expeditionary Forces, mission rehearsal, test and evaluation (Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures validation), live/virtual range integration, experimentation, and decision support analysis.
