Achieve U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) G-2 Certification
Demonstrate proficiency in at least two PMESII-PT variable-specific skills for a given OE
Demonstrate continuing improvement in cultural knowledge and understanding
Demonstrate the ability to act out non-verbal cues to a high degree of authenticity
Execute 90% of all on-site training events
A Threat Emulator (TE) provides a high fidelity depiction of any operational environment. They are tasked with portraying, considering, researching and depicting the PMESII-PT leases with accuracy, as directed by the Commander of TRADOC, TEs provide the required “Strategic Conditions.”
No, TEs are trained by TRADOC G2 TRISA WETED Red Team Cadre experienced professionals to provide the robustness required for OPFOR / OE depiction, in accordance with AR 350-2 and the FM/TC 7-100 series manuals.
Specifically, every TE receives hundreds of hours of coaching from WETED trained Red team Cadre members. TEs are tested quarterly and certified annually by the Cadre on the PMESII-PT aspects of performing as a Threat Emulator. High standards are set, and research of PMESII-PT variables remains constant throughout the support of the training event or contract.
Threat Emulators must meet the following criteria:
· Possess experience dealing with other cultures
· Complete quarterly on-line TE training of various PMESII-PT topics; U.S. and Foreign weapons training; battlefield simulator training; and technical vehicle training
· Attend 90% of all TE supported events
· Demonstrate the ability to act out nonverbal cues with a high level of realism
· Pass the Annual TE Certification
All things are possible, but the results often suffer. Unlike life in the Western World, rural village life makes every role important and necessary for creating the “pattern of life” of the OE. The connectedness of the current OE is clearly unlike any found in modern society. The TE develops continuity and, through that continuity, a level of fidelity is provided, which brings to life the Biometrics, Kinesics, Atmospherics, Heuristics, Proxemics, and Geographic aspects of the OE portrayed.
This is the realism that is required to build a working community, where an outsider injects a natural and unavoidable, but observable, reaction by the rest of the village. Adding unskilled TEs to this environment reduces the quality of fidelity needed to thoroughly train soldiers for the realities in which they will face.
Our TEs are particularly specialized and experienced in demonstrating patterns of life. Without trained professionals capable of projecting verbal and nonverbal communication, which is accomplished through consistent OE training, realism suffers. By taking this holistic and detailed approach, the military and law enforcement professionals we train experience environments that are as, or even more, rigorous than the ones in which they will fight.
