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 learn ascending and descending techniques from members of the Vermont National Guard’s 15th Civil Support Team and Army Mountain Warfare School personnel while participating in the U.S. 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, the AWG collaborated with the two organizations in teaching the soldiers participation in the exercise various rope work, ascending and descending techniques. AWG’s end state for 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 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)
