Playas Instrumentation Network Design and Development

1 recipient will receive $2,904,000. This is a first-time earmark.
Year Enacted: 2005
Description: The New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology (NM Tech) Director, Energetic Materials Research and Testing Center (EMRTC) worked with JNTC on the 'Playas Instrumentation Network Design and Development.' This related to the town of Playas, NM, recently acquired by NM Tech. The town is being converted into a training and RDT&E complex, initially supporting training by the Department of Homeland Security, and also supporting urban operations training for an Army Stryker brigade (172nd Infantry Brigade) preparing for deployment to Iraq. JNTC equity in this project was focused on the requirement for interoperability of distributed instrumentation systems. Interoperability requirements can and will be folded into the development of the Instrumentation Network Master Plan. This addressed instrumentation in the Urban Environment and interagency efforts within the scope of training transformation. JFCOM worked with the project execution organizations to ensure that products and activities were integrated into the overall JNTC effort and are compatible with JNTC standards in support of interoperability.
