"The advent of battlefield digitization increases the work trainers for live force-on-force exercises must do to control exercises and provide feedback to units, and it will pull trainers at platoon and company level out of the tactical information loop. The goal of this study was to describe instrumentation capabilities with the potential for reducing workloads and pulling trainers back into the information loop for exercises at the Army's maneuver combat training centers (CTCs) and at home stations. This study documents the experiences of approximately seventy of the National Training Center (NTC) observer/controllers (OCs) and analysts that participated in the training of the Army's first digitized brigade during the Force XXI Army warfighting Experiment (AWE). To gain a better understanding of what is required to support digital training, the study team reviewed emerging tactical doctrine from platoon through battalion task force level to develop a sample of potential digital training points and then designed displays that would help a trainer monitor unit performance with respect to these points. The team then defined the capabilities a workstation would need to create these displays. This report describes, defends and illustrates twenty workstation capabilities that support exercise control and feedback for digitized units."--DTIC.

"This report describes a U.S. Army Research Institute (ARI) Simulator Systems Research Unit study conducted in response to a request from the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) Army Training Modernization Directorate (ATMD). The goal of the project was to assess the feasibility of supporting the training analysis and feedback process for the U.S. Army's maneuver combat training centers (MCTCs) and selected homestation locations from a single centralized location, referred to as a Training Analysis and Feedback Center of Excellence (TAAF-X). The study refined ATMD's TAAF-X concept, identified potential implementation problems, described strategies for overcoming implementation problems, developed a TAAF-X Task database to use as an evaluation tool in analyzing the most efficient combination of strategies to overcome implementation problems, and estimated the overall feasibility of implementing the TAAF-X concept. Additionally we examined current programs under development and their potential impact on the TAAF-X concept."--DTIC.

The U.S. Army is exploring the advantages of networked computer systems to enhance battlefield situation awareness and command and control, a program known as digitization. The long-term goal of the present effort is to develop measures of the skills needed to exploit the advantages of digitization. The initial challenge was to identify candidate digital skills, since there was no listing of digital skills available to use as a starting point. This report focuses on the approach used to identify candidate digital skills. First, data from the Center for Army Lessons Learned (CALL) were analyzed to identify long- term, high-profile problems likely to be addressed by the effective use of digital systems. Next, digital procedures that units might employ to address these problems, and the cognitive capabilities soldiers would need to implement these solutions, were described. Through this process, twenty-two candidate skills were identified which could be used to identify measures of skill performance. The findings of this report will be used to help define performance standards and develop after action review aids.
