Information Warfare Training Site Yokosuka Modernizes Training with Stallion 3.1 Upgrade

By Cryptologic Technician (Technical) 1st Class Justin M. Castillo, | Information Warfare Training Site Yokosuka Public Affairs | Sept. 13, 2019

YOKOSUKA, Japan -- Information Warfare Training Site (IWTS) Yokosuka recently received new equipment, upgrading and modernizing its Stallion system to the newest 3.1 version.

Stallion was developed by the Naval Information Warfare Systems Command (NIWSC) and is used to supplement integrated cryptologic training throughout the Navy.

Cryptologists rely on Stallion to simulate real-world shipboard radio frequency environments using Ship’s Signal Exploitation Equipment (SSEE) Increment-E and Increment-F collection suites. These suites are employed across multiple maritime platforms to enable the detection and tracking of radio frequency signals. The 3.1 upgrade allows Sailors to train with the latest SSEE Increment-F equipment, and consolidates more features into individual workstations which minimizes the amount of vital shipboard space required.

Representatives from NIWSC trained Sailors from IWTS Yokosuka on the Increment-F interface, startup and shutdown procedures. Now prepared to teach on the updated hardware, instructors from IWTS Yokosuka will better train approximately 80 Sailors from Navy commands throughout Japan annually.

“We got a lot of great training from the guys at NIWSC," said Cryptologic Technician (Collections) 1st Class Clifton Reid. “It will allow us to better prepare students for what to expect out in the fleet.”

The Stallion upgrade also allows students to participate in real-time afloat cryptologic operations scenarios. Ships send entire teams from their respective Ship’s Signal Exploitation Spaces (SSES) to receive group training which fosters collective growth and teamwork.

IWTC San Diego, as part of the Center for Information Warfare Training, provides a continuum of training to Navy and joint service personnel that prepares them to conduct information warfare across the full spectrum of military operations.

With four schoolhouse commands, two detachments, and training sites throughout the United States and Japan, CIWT is recognized as Naval Education and Training Command’s top learning center for the past three years. Training over 21,000 students every year, CIWT delivers trained information warfare professionals to the Navy and joint services. CIWT also offers more than 200 courses for cryptologic technicians, intelligence specialists, information systems technicians, electronics technicians, and officers in the information warfare community.
