Using the “crawl, walk, run” methodology, during the exercise, the soldiers were placed in various scenarios that required them to use current or develop complementary tactic, techniques and procedures while operating on surface, underground and confined spaces. The AWG conducted the 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 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.
