Joint Force Readiness

Train Like You Fight

VATC is a leader in designing, building and executing joint training exercises for Special Operations, partner nations, conventional forces and the interagency community. Our firsthand understanding of the entire command environment — from four-star headquarters down to unit level — enables us to develop more realistic and holistic training exercises that better align with national strategy.

We bring together the exact skills needed for the mission set of each exercise or training event. Our professional exercise planners are supported by:

  • A cadre of subject matter experts, including specialists in air, ground and sea operations, C4I, IT networking, modeling and simulation, intel, logistics, fires, civil affairs, and information operations.
  • Expertise in scenario development, planning, and execution support for unit to Joint and strategic exercise requirements.
  • Over a decade of experience in coordinating with landowners, businesses, law enforcement, news media and other government, public, and private organizations and individuals to create realistic training scenarios.
  • EPIC Ready™, VATC’s technology platform, which can be called upon to support the cost-effective and realistic creation of fully integrated training environments

In a decade, VATC has supported the transformation Emerald Warrior from a basic combat search and rescue exercise into the largest Joint Irregular Warfare exercise conducted by the Department of Defense. Building on this success, we now support joint and multinational training exercises around the globe for a variety of different U.S., partner and allied forces. Our solutions integrate live forces with virtual and constructive training domains for the best training possible outside of actual combat operations.

We successfully integrate multiservice, intergovernmental and partner nation forces into combined training environments that increase mission effectiveness while facilitating better coordination and cooperation.
