i3’s Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance and Targeting Training team has a large contingent supporting the Air Force’s Intelligence School at Goodfellow Air Force Base, Texas. This team manages and operates the U.S. Government Owned RPA/UAV simulation software used to support the training for Operation Lone Star (OLS), the Capstone Exercise course for basic officer, NCO and enlisted intelligence specialties. The team also supports the following training courses: Distributed Common Ground System – Formal Training Unit RTE; Basic All-Source Intelligence Operations (1N0) Course; Basic Imagery Analyst (1N1) Course, and Advanced Intelligence Courses – ISR Operations Course (IROC), Analysis, Correlation and Fusion Course (ACF), and Combat Targeting Course (CTC). Additionally, the Intelligence Training support at Goodfellow AFB includes network support of classified hardware and software on over 4000 workstations across seven networks, UNIX authentication, Microsoft Best Practices, Information Systems Security Manager (ISSM), and Emissions Security (EMSEC) Manager.
i3 supports the design, development, installation and training of government owned UAS simulation software, and the development and sustainment of UAS training devices for the US Army’s Shadow, Hunter, Warrior Alpha and Gray Eagle UAV platforms, as well as the USMC Shadow UAV.
Our engineers and experts developed and fielded a government owned tactical scenario development suite of software that leverages 3D Models and Terrain Databases, that come together to provide active duty units with the nearest real-time virtual training simulations. This same tactical scenario development software facilitates rapid construction of high fidelity discrete scenarios for trainers and instructors/observers, employing user-friendly interfaces with intuitive menus for vignette design and execution. Government Simulation Software has proven to be a highly effective tool for training UAS crews prior to deployment to conduct combat operations in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom.
i3, operating in direct support to U.S. Government engineering laboratories, provides engineering expertise in support of the Army’s PM UAS (Technical Management) initiatives related to the evaluation and test of alternate data links, integration of developmental payloads (EO/IR/SAR/GMTI/Hyper-spectral) on fielded systems, and integration/ development of software systems designed to provide additional capabilities to UAS warfighters. Systems engineering efforts involve System Requirements definition, architectural development, risk identification and mitigation, trade studies, and schedule management. i3 provides laboratory-based system-level testing and reporting in preparation for flight tests and plans, executing and reporting on developmental flight activities.
Battle Command Technology
The C4 Engineering Services team has over ten years of experience in all aspects of Army C4ISR and battle command systems engineering, acquisition, and fielding support. The C4 Engineering team members have participated in all aspects and phases of the development and execution of acquisition and fielding strategies for Army C4ISR systems. The C4 team has the full range of engineering and acquisition staff expertise to address the development, integration, test and evaluation, and fielding requirements necessary to address the overall acquisition decision processes and milestones. The C4 team has provided both general acquisition program and engineering staff supporting development of system requirements; source selection; software and hardware development; proof of principle demonstration; integration and interoperability exercises; test and evaluation strategies; and final fielding, sustainment, and training support packages. The C4 team has singular experience in aviation C4ISR system support and platform integration into Army and Joint network architectures.
The C4 team has participated in all aspects of the Army’s battle command modernization programs keeping abreast of all technical migration strategies, including software, hardware, capability set, software blocking and Joint and Army aerial layer network development. The C4 team members are experts in coordination necessary to ensure synchronization and appropriate forecasting of interoperability requirements for supported systems based on G-3/5/6/7 and CECOM program guidance and milestones. The C4 team has the expertise and experience (over 12 years of continuous Field Services Representative (FSR) support of C4ISR systems) to develop, manage, and execute fielding and operational logistical support insuring successful fielding and effective operational employment of new C4ISR systems.
