Abstract:

The Tactical Engagement Simulation TES provides the most realistic training available to a modern peacetime Army. Training information based on TES exercises can help commanders objectively evaluate their units performance and can assist the Army to improve its overall training. To accomplish these goals, it is necessary to provide a means of performance evaluation and feedback that takes into account the capabilities and operational characteristics of learning, and current combined arms tactical doctrine. The After Action Review AAR is one way of providing such training evaluation and feedback. This Guidebook contains procedures for preparation and conduct of AARs at squad, platoon, and company levels. Procedures are presented in lesson-plan outline format and take into account the amount and types of information likely to be available to each echelons AAR leader the capabilities and operational characteristics of the small units psychological and educational characteristics of learning and current combined arms tactical doctrine. The central characteristics of the AAR are also discussed, in contrast to those of the traditional critique, along with training diagnosis methodology and AAR technique and style.
