Abstract : The National Training Center (NTC) provides realistic training conditions for heavy battalion task forces. In addition to this primary mission, however, NTC also serves a research purpose. For this reason, the Army Research Institute (ARI) has undertaken a research program in support of the Combined Arms Training Activity, Ntc's parent organization. The program supports the Training Activity's mission of developing lessons learned from past experience. The present research note presents a framework for issue identification which is specifically tailored to the needs of the NTc, i.e., the issues identified are able to be researched at the NTC. The utility of this framework is three fold: it demonstrates and organizes the wide range of issues suitable for investigation at the NTC, it provides input on selection of issues and setting of priorities which can be of use to policy makers, it permits the formulation and categorization of new issues. Keywords: Countermobility, Command and control, Issues identification, Operating systems, Doctrine, Organization, Maneuver, Fire Support, Intelligence, Air defense, Mobility, Combat Service Support, Nuclear/Biological/Chemical(NBC).
