Early this April, Marine Corps Training and Education Command hosted the Project Tripoli Live Virtual Constructive Training Environment (LVC-TE) Planning Conference in Orlando, Florida. This conference aimed to achieve a common understanding of Project Tripoli, which is to provide a comprehensive venue to train using emerging systems and capabilities across all domains. The conference also focused on identifying the requirements to build this capability and establish a way forward for its development.

This LVC-TE allows for experimentation with emerging technologies and concepts, and will provide the architecture to integrate and render real-time data from instrumented ranges, force-on-force training aids and devices, simulators, and simulations across a deliberately provisioned training network that enables connectivity and interaction across globally disparate training sites.”

“Project Tripoli will provide the Marine Corps with a virtual environment that is embedded with live training in order for Marines to gain experience with emerging systems and capabilities across all domains,” said 1st Lt Phillip Parker, Training and Education Command spokesman. “It provides the infrastructure to support such a capability and the associated software, simulators, and training aids that will ultimately enable training at every level, from the individual Marine to higher level staff.”

While current training infrastructure is expected to be outpaced by advancing technologies, Project Tripoli is designed to increase combat readiness against threats such as electronic warfare, loitering munitions, unmanned systems, and other modern weapons.

“To mitigate these issues, the Commandant prioritized the modernization of training capabilities as one of the top three investments in support of Force Design 2030,” said Parker. “Project Tripoli is the means through which the Marine Corps will train at every level, across all domains, and in varied locations in support of Force Design 2030.”

Project Tripoli will represent the first steps in bringing this training capability to the Marine Corps, and initial fielding for the project is expected in 2023. Added Parker, “Once fully fielded, Project Tripoli will lead to more lethal and better-trained Marines by ensuring the first rep a Marine sees is not in action, but in the safety of a learning environment. The Project Tripoli conference was a critical first step in achieving this vision.”
