Abstract:

The Armored Forces Research Unit, U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences ARI, in coordination with the U.S. Army Force XXI Training Program FXXITP, has sponsored research on the utility of battlefield functions BFs for training the armored brigade. This research is a continuation of previous work performed to analyze and use BFs applicable to the heavy battalion task force to support a Functional Approach to Training strategy. This report provides the history and lessons learned for the effort to analyze seven BFs applicable to the armored brigade, as well as describes the methodology and procedures used to develop function analyses FAs for the selected brigade BFs. The methodology and processes used for the development of BF FAs are described and provide the basis for future development of BF FAs for other type units and echelons.
