Training Landing Zone

The intent of this Landing Zone is to provide a launching point for Soldiers who wish to develop scenarios and content for home station training.  Here you will find links to a number of tools that will aid in the development process, along with documentation and examples.

OE Data Integration Network (ODIN) is the authoritative digital resource for the Worldwide Equipment Guide (WEG), Decisive Action Training Environment (DATE) and accompanying Force Structures, and the Training Circular (TC) 7-100 series. ODIN is built to be a living product with standardized technology.

The VOA provides users the information, tools, and resources to learn, apply, and replicate OPFOR counter-tasks to achieve unit training objectives within a collective training environment by exposing users to OPFOR tasks, conditions and standards.

Decisive Action Training Environment (DATE) and accompanying Force Structures

The Opposing Force (OPFOR) Threats Tactics Course (TTC) provides foundational instruction on OPFOR concepts and capabilities using functional tactic – a framework for tactical best-practices.


DATE World is a tool for the training community to use across training events ranging from rotations at the Combat Training Centers (CTCs) to individual home station training (HST) events. It is the baseline document for all the conditions and characteristics of the Operational Environment (OE) in the selected region. Exercise planners should use this document for all exercise and scenario design requirements.  Click here for more information on using DATE.

The Exercise Support Application (ESA) is a repository of existing exercise support packages in varying formats and file sizes. It contains previously executed exercise content such as operations orders, graphics, concepts of the operation, and roads to war. These files can be altered and modified for reuse in a new exercise.

The Information Operations Network (ION) replicates the complexities of the information variable through an immersive environment that emulates the open internet. ION includes realistic webpages, blogs, streaming media, video, social media, and other common internet entities that units encounter in the information environment. However, unlike the internet, ION content is housed on closed intranets. (CAC Required)
