Drawing on emerging simulation technologies, this paper proposes general policies and programs to improve significantly both effectiveness and efficiency of Reserve Component training. It focuses on combat armor units of the National Guard. The study develops an objective intensive training strategy for 1998. It then describes both training and technology developments required to enable the strategy. Proposed concepts are applied to small unit and leader training. Four general leverage areas are described Compression, Distribution, Modernization, and Prioritization. The strategy then defines six specific developments to intensify National Guard training. Five DARPANGB Technology Teams are proposed to meld technology development with field unit needs. An action plan is proposed recommending both a planned development schedule and extensive evaluation tied together in a joint NGB-DARPA program. The paper establishes a model for the application of improved simulation to combat support and combat service support units and battle command staff training.
