AWG prepares soldiers for adaptive leadership at Risk Reduction Exercise, NIE 14.1

Members of the U.S. Army Asymmetric Warfare Group work with Army engineers to build subterranean trainers to simulate the environment. Their intermediate assessment is taking place at the Asymmetric Battle Lab, where they have built two subterranean trainers that will assist Soldiers in understanding how to effectively operate within this environment. In conjunction with the Army Capabilities Integration Center’s Brigade Modernization Command, the Training Brain Operations Center, and other solution focused organizations, the AWG looks to take this initiative beyond the trainers and place it into doctrine.

The CQD scenario portion of the exercise was a part of a “crawl, walk, run” piece to the exercise in assisting the soldier in determining what surface tactic, techniques and procedures were applicable to the subterranean environment. The AWG conducted the subterranean risk reduction exercise in order to prepare the soldiers for their upcoming participation in a subterranean assessment at the Network Integration Evaluation 14.1 scheduled for November. AWG’s end state for conducting the Risk Reduction Exercise and its upcoming participation in NIE 14.1 is to develop technique solutions to capability gaps with respect to subterranean operations and to ultimately develop an Army Techniques Publication on subterranean warfare for the force.

  • Soldiers from 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Armored Division, conduct training in a mock subterranean environment during Network Integration Evaluation 13.2 at Fort Bliss, Texas in May. The U.S. Army Asymmetric Warfare Group, along with the Brigade Modernization Command, in a collaborative effort conducted an assessment of two infantry companies from the division to understand the current capabilities and determine the baseline of where an infantry company is operating at with regard to subterranean environment. Additionally, soldiers were introduced and familiarized with this operational environment in order to develop means to mitigate it. The second in a series of semi-annual evaluations for fiscal year 2013, NIE 13.2 is a Solider-led evaluation designed to further integrate and rapidly progress the Army’s tactical network.
