Abstract:

This report comprises a glossary of terms as used in development of the Battalion and Brigade Battle Staff Training System BSTS. BSTS, functional area training packages for staff officers, is a combination of text and computer-based instruction CBI. Sponsored by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency DARPA, the BSTS was developed for use by the U.S. Army National Guard ARNG. The prototype BSTS comprised 13 courses for training brigade staff officers in individual functional areas and those tasks required to prepare staffs for collective battle staff tasks. The glossary presents the working definitions of terms used in these programs. The BSTS program, sponsored under the DARPA program umbrella of Simulation in Training for Advanced Readiness SIMITAR, is coordinated with three other programs Simulation-Based Mounted Brigade Training Program SIMBART, Simulation-Based Multiechelon Training for Armor Units SIMUTA, and Combat Service Support CSS Training System Development for the National Guard.
