LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) — Fort Leavenworth is planning a groundbreaking ceremony next week for a $15.6 million battleground simulation training center.

Fort officials announce Wednesday that the ceremony Wednesday will begin construction of a Regional Simulation Center, which will house the hardware, software and technology that simulate battlefield activity.

The fort said in a news release that the center will provide train the staffs and commanders of large units, a corps or division to help improve communication, coordination and planning skills.

The Army says it will save money by consolidating the training technology, which currently is scattered at each corps and division headquarters.

The Leavenworth Times reports construction of the 36,000-square-foot building is expected to be completed by January 2016.
