  • Mission Command Battle Lab
    The Mission Command Battle Lab participated in the Unified Challenge 19.2 Simulation Experiment from Aug. 5-23 at Fort Leavenworth.
    More than 100 role-players, analysts and support staff from across the military services and the Army Futures Command travelled to the MCBL to attend the event. The UC 19.2 Simulation Experiment assessed the task organization of the division reconnaissance element by simulating a corps conducting multi-domain operations against a credible, peer threat in a large-scale combat operations environment. Additionally, the event provided a conceptual testbed for future Army warfighting science and technology capabilities.
    The UC 19.2 Simulation Experiment was hosted by the Maneuver Battle Lab at Fort Benning, Ga., and was distributed across the AFC experimentation community of practice using the Battle Lab Collaborative Simulation Environment distributed network, which saves the Army thousands of dollars in travel money by facilitating a real-time collaboration environment.
    Major commands from across the Army provided participants, including role-players from 7th Infantry Division, 10th Mountain Division, Training and Doctrine Command and Special Operations Command. The Air Force participated with operational planners at Fort Leavenworth and simulation operators at Hurlburt Field, Fla.
    Data collected during UC 19.2 will yield information to support echelons above brigade operational and organizational concepts, multi-domain operations concept development, and will drive experimentation efforts during AFC’s Fiscal Year 2020 Future Studies Program.
