MBGIE 2005: The Joint and Combined Multi-Battle Group Inport Exercise Achieves New Level of Excellence in Wargaming Simulation [open pdf - 382KB]
"U.S. Navy and UK-coalition forces reached a new dimension in virtual wargaming around the globe when they replicated a composite warfighting scenario, Feb. 7-11, 2005, during the Joint and Combined Multi-Battle Group Inport Exercise (MBGIE). This was the first time joint (Army and Air Force) and coalition forces used the Navy's Continuous Training Environment infrastructure and Joint Forces Commands Joint Training and Experimentation Network for training. The NCTE and JTEN enabled real-time battle simulation aboard ships and with Air Force and Army training simulators. The Joint Semi-Automated Forces and Battle Force Tactical Training systems realistically simulated at-sea warfighting conditions."
