    Much work has been done to develop intelligent tutoring systems in domains such as algebra, geometry, and computer programming. Our work is to develop an intelligent tutoring system to train US soldiers. One main difference in this domain is that one of the main skills to be learned is cooperation between teammates, so the tutor must emphasize collaboration as a skill. In addition, to help train this skill the system must be able to run in real-time, and provide both computer generated teammates, as well as intelligent opposing forces. This system is the first real-time, multi-user, model tracing tutor with simulated teammates. The goal of this thesis is to build a prototype system to validate that this is a valid approach for this domain.
