Navy Wants to Make Surface Fleet Training Harder with More Live, Virtual Opposing Forces and Ranges

SAN DIEGO, Calif. – As the Navy continues to inject more live, virtual and constructive events to prepare ships’ crews to defeat potential threats, surface warfare training officials are looking to add more realistic adversaries and tougher scenarios via virtual training.

“With the threats we face, we don’t have the ranges with the appropriate depth-of-fire presentation. We don’t have and can’t generate the live OPFOR (opposing force) in the numbers that are necessary with the threat presentation,” Rear Adm. David Welch, commander of Carrier Strike Group 15, told a Surface Navy Association West Coast symposium audience last week. “And, in some cases, frankly, we don’t want to expose our own capability.”
