Abstract : The Army Acquisition community has a significant deficiency in the amount of operational expertise to influence a particular S and T technology or acquisition program. As a result, emerging materiel solutions often fall short of their desired utility in the eyes of the warfighter. In a fiscally constrained environment, the product development team must use all available resources in the most efficient manner to produce the highest quality product in the shortest time possible for the end user. By repurposing the information contained in the Combined Arms Training Strategies (CATS) task database, an engineering team can gain the operational knowledge and environment from the training tools the Army uses, requiring less burden on the few operational experts that exist within the Acquisition Corps. A process to accomplish this is being developed at TARDEC and has had early success in characterizing vehicle operator behaviors beyond what occurs within structure of a vehicle.
