The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) announced the Brigade and Battlegroup Mission Training Center (B2MTC) that was developed and delivered by Elbit Systems as a winner of the Commander-in-Chief 2020 Innovation Award. IDF considered originality, feasibility, scalability and extraordinary contribution for the over-all effectiveness for the award.
Since entering service with the IDF, the Ground Forces of the IDF diverted all of its field training to the B2MTC which has accumulated to-date many hundreds of operational training hours with thousands of trainees both in service and from the reserves.
B2MTC is training center that immerses commanders, headquarters staff and two subordinate command levels in high-fidelity combat situations in actual battle zone territory. It reduces the costs and logistics spent on field training while enabling a hyper-realistic training experience using the same operational Battle Management Systems that are in use by the IDF.
