The introduction of the Space-Based Infrared System (SBIRS) will allow space warfighters to contribute to military operations in ways never before possible. However, due to the rapid pace at which SBIRS operations are evolving, it is a challenge for SBIRS training to keep pace. A training support system called the Training Environment Support System (TESS) is being developed to provide clones of the missing operations systems and to offer training support tools to both trainees and instructors. These training support tools will utilize training support strategies and technologies chosen because of their applicability to simulation-based training. For example, TESS will feature cognitive agents and dynamic types of training support that provide scaffolding for learners. In this paper, we discuss an initial TESS design and the ways in which it is intended to contribute to simulation-based training in satellite operations.
