JOINT TARGETING SYSTEM – THE SUPPORT TOOL FOR JOINT TARGETING CYCLE AND ITS APPLICABILITY IN COMPUTER ASSISTED EXERCISES
Abstract: In the military system, simulation represents the most important tool that supports training because it can be efficiently used from the tactical level to the strategic one. For individual training the costs of using real or virtual simulation systems are not justified, but when it comes to the headquarters training running a live exercise is extremely expensive. Nevertheless, the units, headquarters, general staff and Multinational Division South-East headquarters need to be trained in both national and NATO exercises. Taking all those facts into consideration, the computer assisted exercises proved to be the best solution for training all the cycles within a headquarters that support the decision making process. In the last years, among all those processes, a particular interest was shown for Joint Targeting Cycle during NATO computer assisted exercises.
