JBSA-Fort Sam Houston Mission Training Complex

About Us

The JBSA Fort Sam Houston Mission Training Complex leads in employing digital training systems and peripheral equipment to simulate mission conditions rather than taking an actual brigade/battalion/team of Soldiers to the field. As an added benefit, many of today`s live, virtual, constructive simulation tools are able to link with other simulations nationwide. Using Army/Joint Mission Command Systems and digital Military Health Systems in a linked environment allows users to build a simulated mission environment to exercise command and control and create a common operating picture (COP) that provides situational awareness.

Army Mission Command Systems

Joint Capabilities Release /Blue Force Tracker 2 (JCR/BFT2) Provides situational awareness and command and control to the lowest tactical echelons. It will facilitate a seamless flow of mission command information across the battle space, and will interoperate with external command and control and sensor systems, such as AMCS. 


Command Post of the Future (CPOF) is an executive level decision support system, providing situational awareness and collaborative tools for tactical decision making, planning, rehearsal and execution management from Corps to Battalion level. CPOF supports visualization, information analysis, and collaboration in a single, integrated environment. CPOF operators interactively collaborate, sharing thoughts, workspace and plans to analyze information, and evaluate courses for action with real-time feedback for an immediate and comprehensive view of the battlefield.


Sustainment System Mission Command (S2MC) supports the war fighting C2 and battle management process by rapidly processing large volumes of logistical, personnel and medical information.  The S2MC will facilitate quicker, more accurate decision making by providing a more effective means for force-level commanders and CSS commanders to determine the sustainability and supportability of current and planned operations.


Joint Land Component Constructive Training Capability-Entity Resolution Federation (JLCCTC-ERF) is a federation of simulations, simulation Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Information (C4I) interfaces, data collection and after-action review tools. It stimulates the Army Mission Command Systems (AMCS) to facilitate battle staff collective training by requiring staff reaction to incoming digital information while executing the commander's tactical plan.


JLCCTC-ERF is comprised of the following systems:

  • Joint Conflicts and Tactical Simulation (JCATS)

  • Joint Deployment Logistics Model (JDLM)

  • Joint Non-Kinetic Effects Model (JNEM)

  • Virtual Reality Scene Generator/Multiple Unified Simulation Environment (VRSG/MUSE)

  • After Action Review System (AARS)

SIMC4I Interchange Module for Plans, Logistics, & Exercises (SIMPLE)

   The Multiple Unified Simulation Environment (MUSE) is the primary virtual Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance simulation used by the Department of Defense for Joint Services command and staff level training.  In the Joint Land Component Constructive Training Capability (JLCCTC), MUSE and the visualization system Virtual Reality Generator (VRSG) provide the primary unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) surveillance capability.


As a learning platform Virtual Battlespace 3 provides a proven, easy to deploy and widely used technology base that is modular and scalable. The use of this system provides learning environments for use within the Army in the Following domains:

  • Force protection
  • Procedural first aid and survival
  • Critical thinking and leadership
  • Mission rehearsal

The Army low Overhead Training Toolkit (ALOTT) is a training tool suite for Mission Training Complexes (MTCs), tactical/operational units, and Training & Doctrine Command Centers of Excellence and Schools to bridge the gap between large scale Joint Land Component Training Capability (JLCCTC) exercises and non-simulation supported unit exercises. ALOTT was created to fulfill the demand from commanders and training centers for stand-alone applications, training aids and tools that are easy to use and cheap to prepare and reset after each exercise.

The ALOTT Tool Suite includes:

  • Division eXercise Training and Readiness System (DXTRS)
  • Homestaion Enabling Low-overhead Integrated eXercise (HELIX)
  • Metis
   The Joint Exercise Enhancement Program Video Creation Tool (JEEP VCT) is a Strategic Command initiative designed to virtualize the Public Affairs Office. VCT is designed to create simulated news broadcasts for disaster event planning exercises and to create virtual instructor videos to augment more traditional slide show presentations in the classroom.
  The program is a simulation designed to train junior leaders (both officers and non-commissioned officers) on interpersonal communication and basic counseling skills using Army Leadership FM 6-22, Appendix B, Counseling (Headquarters, Department of the Army, 2006). the simulation features instruction from a virtual coach where basic counseling concepts are introduced, animated vignettes designed to show good and bad counseling sessions and five interactive practice environments where newly learned counseling skills are tested.
Military Healthcare Systems

Medical Communications for Combat Casualty Care (MC4) is a complex system that has joined military leaders, health care and technology experts as the single medical information system supporting deployed forces. MC4 offers deployable medical units a wide range of integrated systems (software and hardware that bridge the tactical and sustaining base Information Management and Information Technology health care systems. By utilizing this system, relevant medical data flows vertically throughout levels of health care and to joint medical databases. This enables tactical medical forces the ability to electronically record health services rendered and facilitates theater-wide medical surveillance and trend analysis. The system also provides pertinent medical information horizontally into the Army Battle Command, Combat Service Support and Communications architecture. As a result, MC4 enables enhanced medical situational awareness for combatant commanders.

Joint Medical Workstation II-JMeWS II JMeWS II provides a Theater medical surveillance and reporting capability. It can take encounter information from TMIP applications, as well as the Service components and display summary information for the Combatant Commander's staff. JMeWS is fed information from across the theater. This information includes patient visibility (where a patient is and their condition at that point in time), bed status, trending information concerning symptoms, International Classification of Diseases (ICD) codes, Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes, and Disease/Non-Battle Injury (DNBI) information. When this information is analyzed, the COCOM Surgeon will be able to take preventative actions to further protect individual soldiers.

Armed Forces Health Longitudinal Technology Application-AHLTA, the military's electronic health record, is a clinical information system that generates, maintains, stores and provides secure electronic access to comprehensive patient records. It is the first system to allow for the central storage of standardized EHR data that is available for world wide haring of patient information.
