Abstract:

The purpose of this report is to present a research concept for developing and applying methods for measuring and interpreting unit performance at the National Training Center NTC. The valid measurement of unit combat effectiveness during peacetime has been a long-term Army goal. The NTC provides an excellent opportunity to provide this performance data on Army battalion task forces because of the high-quality combat simulation and extensive database available for analysis. The measurement systems described in this research concept are now being developed. The strawman measurement system will be tested at the NTC, evaluated, and refined for operational use. The concepts and methodology have implications for use by the Combined Arms Center and schools in development of Army Training and Evaluation Programs ARTEPs and other training support materials.
