  • Research documents and extracts for factual data describing the composition of military forces in a model/simulation. 
  • Provide analysis of a functional area (aviation, ground combat, command and control, combat service support, intelligence, and opposing forces) and identify strengths and weakness as they occur during a simulation-supported event.
  • Edit doctrinal manuscripts, analyze problem areas, and postulate feasible solutions for implementation in simulation training events. 
  • Translate real world or fictional enemy and friendly force structures into an exercise simulation database/batch files.
  • Conduct pre-event tests and evaluation of supporting databases, and parametric data. 
  • Attend conferences and meetings at both home station and other off-site locations, providing recommendations and analysis of model/simulation employment both in preparation for and during exercises. 
  • Participate in structured simulation training events/exercises, and simulated rehearsals of operational plans/orders.
