Creative home station training ups the ante on mitigating thru SubTO

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, while building adaptability and resiliency within soldiers. The AWG's end state is to develop an Army Techniques Publication on Subterranean Operations for the Army. (U.S. Army Photo by Lt. Col. Sonise Lumbaca)

  • 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.
