Abstract:

The effective and efficient use of the emerging technologies of distance learning and simulations presents and opportunity for the Army National Guard to prepare for training and operations in the 21st century. This paper focuses on how, during a period of budget cutbacks and reductions in training areas and facilities, the Army National Guard will dramatically change training methods. Training methods will become a balance of the live, constructive and virtual training domains. Training will capitalize on the capability of each of these domains so that each contributes fully to developing a comprehensive, efficient and effective training program. Use of these emerging technologies will maintain the Army National Guard as the expandable combat base and the primary reserve of the Army.
