Mr. Chris Willis
MBL conducts combined arms, cross domain maneuver experiments in live, virtual, constructive, and gaming environments. Integrated within the Centers of Excellence, joint services, and coalition partners, the MBL uses live prototyping, force on force experiments and modeling and simulation capabilities to support Soldier and small unit modernization efforts. It recommends Doctrine, Organization, Training, Materiel, Leadership and Education, Personnel, Facilities and Policy (DOTMLPF-P) solutions in support of force development, Brigade Combat Team (BCT) modernization, future force concepts, and current operational needs from the BCT through Soldier level. MBL objectives are to mitigate risk to the force, help focus Science & Technology efforts, quantify value with validated underpinnings, and shape investment strategies to enable alignment of resources to solutions of highest operational value.
