AWG Subterranean Risk Reduction Exercise prepares soldiers for NIE 14.1

Soldiers from Company B, 1st Battalion, 6th Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Armored Division of the Brigade Modernization Command use rope work and knot tying techniques to descend and extract a mock casualty down into a culvert while mitigating through limited visibility and simulated tainted air quality during the Army Asymmetric Warfare Group’s Subterranean Risk Reduction Exercise in September. Because of the potential requirements for ascending and descending into and out of confined subterranean spaces while simultaneous facing limited visibility and low quality air in these types of environment, the AWG in collaborated with Vermont National Guard’s 15th Civil Support Team and Army Mountain Warfare School developed scenarios for the soldiers to better prepare them for operation in within this environment. AWG’s end state for the Subterranean 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 ultimately develop an Army Techniques Publication on subterranean warfare for the force.

  • Members of the U.S. Army Asymmetric Warfare Group's Able Squadron use stacked storage containers to ascend a "simulated" underground shaft in order to develop adaptability and resiliency within soldiers while operating within a subterranean environment during training held Oct. 1 here. Each week, the operational squadron conducts a complex training event that creatively utilizes home station facilities and equipment to get at the subterranean problem set. These training events assess, develop and validate various tactics, techniques and procedures regarding the subterranean problem set and contributes to an overall collaborative AWG effort that began in May during the unit's participation in the Army’s Network Integration Evaluation 13.2; and subsequently the AWG’s Subterranean Risk Reduction Exercise held at Fort A.P. Hill, Va., in September highlighting subterranean warfare and confined space training. (U.S. Army Photo by Lt. Col. Sonise Lumbaca)
  • Members of the U.S. Army Asymmetric Warfare Group conduct combat lifesaving skill under limited visibility condition during training used to simulate operating within a subterranean environment on Oct. 24. The overall concept of the training, hosted by the AWG's Able Squadron, was to simulate the complex environment, and train and or refresh unit members on negotiating multiple obstacles that a soldier might face in a subterranean environment. Each week, the operational squadron conducts a complex training event that creatively utilizes home station facilities and equipment to get at the subterranean problem set. These training events assess, develop and validate various tactics, techniques and procedures regarding subterranean operations, while building adaptability and resiliency within soldiers.

The unit participated in AWALP in preparation for an upcoming September Risk Reduction Exercise and the November  Network Integration Evaluation 14.1, that will incorporate the use of the subterranean and confined space scenarios. AWALP will assist the Soldiers in adapting to an unknown environment while looking a variety options to mitigate problem sets (Photo by Lt. Col. Sonise Lumbaca)
