    • MATREX is building the Battle Command-centric M&S architecture
      mapped to OSD, TRADOC, and FCS requirements

    • MATREX (RDECOM) is working with TRADOC, ATEC, PM
      FCS(BCT)/FCS LSI, and 3CE to build an Army solution for M&S
      experimentation applicable across the acquisition life cycle.

    • MATREX is providing M&S capabilities to PMs to help reduce technical,
      cost, and schedule risk.

       Tutorial Presentations on MATREX Simulation Architecture and Tools follow this brief.
