Abstract : This research examined tools and capabilities required to implement an embedded training (ET) after action review (AAR) support system in future dismounted Soldier systems to enhance the training of squads and platoons (small combat units). Dismounted Soldier systems are being designed and developed to increase battle command, situational awareness and understanding, and provide em bedded training for the small unit. The context of the research was tools to assist the leader/trainer in conducting small-unit AARs. The effort examined projected system design requirements; AAR systems and capabilities employed at combat training centers and in virtual simulations; and AAR concepts and solutions explored during the Future Force Warrior Advanced Technology Demonstration. The analytic findings provide concepts for interactive system controls integrated into menus to facilitate the AAR process. The findings also provide tools to facilitate the integration of realistic firing engagements and casualty play during training. A suite of flexible tools was recommended which addresses the AAR ET requirement for the Ground Soldier System.
