7-62. TARGET ENGAGEMENT EXERCISE PREPARATION. The purpose of the TEE preparation
feature is to permit target engagement exercises to be prepared by selecting a set
of target events to be simulated during a subsequent instructional activity and
identifying specific contingencies that, if met, during such instruction, will
trigger the insertion of each of the selected target events. Preparation of a TEE
is preceded by the development of a tactical situation description or scenario.
This scenario provides a context within which the intended target engagement in-
structional activities can take place. It also permits the instructor to determine
which target sites should be activated, what targets should be placed on each acti-
vated site, when target events should be activated to be of most instructional
value, and the triggering contingencies that are both probable (as to occurrence)
and realistic (as to circumstances of occurrence). There is computer space for
preparation and storage of 20 TEE's in the CMS.
The major characteristics of each TEE are as follows:
(1) Each TEE can accomnodate up to 10 individual targets.
(2) Targets are selected from the 44 types on target list CRT pages 951A, 951B
(3) A maximum of five targets per TEE can be assigned to travel over predeter-
mined paths, and five can be assigned to fixed sites.
(4) Up to 15 events can be programmed for each TEE (events equal motion and
(5) Up to three sets of triggering contingencies can be defined for each
(Contingencies include parameters and operators and. if more than one para-
meter is selected, connectors required.)
(6) Specific aircraft malfunctions/systems failures can be assigned to each
hostile target; the failure occurs if the threat scores a hit on ownship.
(7) HOT or COLD IR coding can be assigned to each target (only stationary
targets can be IR COLD).
(8) For ground targets assigned to sites permitting motion, travel pathways
can be selected, and vehicle speed from 0 to 40 kph, in 10-kph increments, can be
(9) Five sites are designated for airborne targets only. When any of these
sites are assigned to a TEE, vehicle speed up to 200 kph can be designated.
b. In conjunction with the development of the scenario for the TEE, the instruc-
tor should identify IC or autofly set(s) to be used with it. This is important
because using a specific IC or autofly set with a particular exercise will place
the simulated aircraft in the vicinity of the target sites to be activated and pro-
vide an additional degree of standardization for the planned target engagement
c. When CRT page 950 is called up via the data entry keyboard, the main page
area contains a blank target engagement exercise prep page (figure 7-71) that is
completed during the preparation process and then stored in group 5 (TARGETS, CRT
pages 501 through 520) for recall during subsequent training periods. The data from
