Sustainable Range program:

The Sustainable Range Program (SRP) is the Army's overall approach for improving the way in which it designs, manages, and uses its ranges to ensure long-term sustainability. SRP is defined by its two core programs, the Range and Training Land Program (RTLP) and the Integrated Training Area Management (ITAM) Program, which focus on the doctrinal capability of the Army's ranges and training land.

Integrated Training Area Management program:

The Integrated Training Area Management (ITAM) program is a core program of the Sustainable Range Program and is responsible for maintaining the land to help the Army to meet its training requirements. This requires understanding and balancing Army Training requirements and land management practices.

The ITAM Program relies on its four components and an integrated management from HQDA, ACOM/ASCC/DRU, and installations to accomplish its mission. The four components are Training Requirements Integration (TRI); Range and Training Land Assessment (RTLA); Land Rehabilitation and Maintenance (LRAM); and Sustainable Range Awareness (SRA). These components combine to provide the means to understand how the Army's training requirements impact land management practices, what the impact of training is on the land, how to mitigate and repair the impact, and communicate the ITAM message to soldiers and the public. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a foundational support element that provides location information that assists land managers in making their decisions.

Pinyon Canyon site:

Fort Carson's PCMS is located just 150 miles southeast of Fort Carson. The maneuver site's 235,000 acres offers 6 small arms ranges (up to .50 caliber). Contact Fort Carson's Range Control scheduling office for availability of training land and ranges.

Individual Military Training branch

Mission:

The Individual Training Branch provides Soldier's Professional Military Education, Off Post Schools, and Sustainment Training services for all Fort Carson Soldiers, National Guard, and Army Reserve. Individual Military Training Branch (IMTB) provides world class installation and brigade level support for training of Military Occupational Skills, Soldier and Civilian Professional Development, and Mission critical functional skills. IMTB plans, coordinates, schedules, and oversees Installation and Service Schools programs and the Distributed Learning Systems. We are listed in ATRRS as School Code 414. Our vision is to provide the best administration of training services, and classroom resources for all Soldiers' individual training to be conducted at a single location.

Battle Command Training Branch - http://www.carson.army.mil/battle_sim/

Mission:

Serve as the Garrison Commander's subject matter expert in all issues relating to the integration of Live, Virtual, Constructive, and Gaming simulations training to enhance individual Soldier –Unit collective Warfightingreadiness of the 4thInfantry Division; 7 MSU's; their subordinate units located on Fort Carson; and Reserve Component units in New Mexico, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, Kansas, Nebraska and Montana.

Environments: Plans, coordinates, and integrates constructive simulations training ISO PLT-Div level C4I rehearsals-battlestaffand tactical/command readiness.

Bottom Line—Simulations training is a viable enhancer to unit warfightingreadiness; unit CDRs routinely incorporate the use of simulations into their training plans.
