Although the foregoing scenario has been played countless times in training at sea, it is unique that this training occurred on board the Nimitz Strike Group (SG) ships while pierside at the Naval Air Station North Island and Naval Station San Diego, California and Naval Station Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The new approach is integrated training of an entire warfighting team of SG using high-quality, scalable, multidimensional warfare simulation. Battle Force Tactical Training system is the Navy's first organic battle-group-wide simulation capability, an embedded training capability installed already in many aircraft carriers, large-deck amphibious ships, cruisers and destroyers.
