"My experience with the West Point Simulation Center was far more helpful than I can imagine. The technology is next level and that type of quality is not offered easily at military posts around the country. The level of expertise within the staff of the West Point Simulation Center goes unmatched. They are always asking if you need any additional instruction and if so, they are more than willing to help. I am grateful for my experiences at the West Point Simulation Center and I would recommend this resource to anyone."

Army Programs of Record
The West Point Simulation Center serves as the gateway toward the application of Army Programs of Record (PoR). Led by a Functional Area 57 (FA57) Officer, the West Point Simulation Center is tasked with the analysis, design, development and implementation of Army PoRs as it applies to the United States Corps of Cadet's (USCC) mission. It is the role of the FA57 to ensure the most up-to-date systems are fielded within USCC to support cadet training and education, as well as tenant unit and staff and faculty training.
Education and Research
The West Point Simulation Center maintains a specific focus of applying modeling and simulations technology to education. The creation of authentic learning environments using technology enables instructors to offer a more robust experience and work toward creating insight for cadets while experiencing new learning objectives. The education of staff and faculty on the use of modeling and simulations technology ultimately creates a positive effect on the cadet learning environment.
Modernization and Future Technologies
The West Point Simulation Center stands at the epicenter of technological growth at West Point. As the liaison to the Army Modeling and Simulations Office (AMSO), the simulation center ensures that strategic planning focuses on the implementation of new hardware and software technologies such as the Synthetic Training Environment (STE) and Mission Command Systems.
