Abstract:

This report documents the results of an analysis of data collected during the implementation of a new method for small unit tactical training, known as REALTRAIN. The study was designed to measure the training effectiveness of the REALTRAIN method to identify needs to refine REALTRAIN training techniques and to assess the methodology used for unit evaluation. REALTRAIN exercises employ combat techniques to simulate weapons effects and weapons signatures. The REALTRAIN method provides a working context for the learning of tactical skills by armor, infantry, and anti-armor personnel in a combined arms environment.
