This chapter provides an introduction to live, virtual, and constructive (LVC) modeling and simulation (M&S) for training. LVC simulations are being used by the military, space, and other organizations to provide effective training for individuals and teams at various levels of fidelity. LVC simulations save time, money, and lives while achieving an improvement in human performance. In this chapter the reader will gain an understanding of LVC modeling and simulation by learning to categorize LVC as it pertains to training applications. The reader will also get an introduction to LVC architectures and the challenges associated with integrating LVC in support of individual, small- to large-scale training exercises.
