Operation Blended Warrior (OBW) 2016 marked the second year of a three-year effort to document lessons learned and understand barriers to implementing Live, Virtual, Constructive (LVC) distributed training. In the first year of the event, LVC focus areas included connectivity, interoperability, data standards, after-action review, and cyber security. Year two introduced additional focus areas: multi-level security, cross domain solutions, long-haul feeds, and performance measurement. This paper focuses on this latter area—defining and collecting performance measures.

Several trends within the simulation and training industry are emphasizing the need for measurable proof that training solutions meet or exceed the requirements for delivering effective training. Cognitive state is a key component of learning, meaning that classification of cognitive state and capacity can provide a measure of training effectiveness. However, accurate classification of trainee state is an extremely challenging task. The more traditional subjective assessment methods have several limitations, while objective assessment methods can be difficult to implement.

Given the reductions in Department of Defense budgets it is imperative that every dollar spent on training warfighters be used in a cost efficient manner. One approach for cost effective training is distributed training exercises that include live, virtual, and constructive participants, but injecting the training functionality into live aircraft platforms is challenging.
