Training the National Guard

Soldier is outfitted with SRI’s FlexTrain multi-mission instrumentation system for training. Training the National Guard – 2002

Since 2002, SRI’s integration of live, virtual, and constructive training elements on a common digital battlefield have given the National Guard new dimensions in soldier combat readiness exercises.

In 2005, SRI began supporting the Army National Guard’s eXportable Combat Training Capability (XCTC), which trains combat and functional brigades. XCTC is cost- and time-efficient, making soldiers combat ready at their home stations. This scalable, live-training program has proven effective for pre-mobilization forces. SRI is the prime contractor, providing all design, planning, and control of exercises using SRI’s FlexTrain™ multi-mission instrumentation system. National Guard soldiers have said it’s “the best training we’ve ever received.”

As of late 2012, SRI had performed combat training exercises in 20 states for more than 30,000 troops.
