The Army Science Board was tasked to seek revolutionary possibilities for improving deployability as well as effectiveness of future joint ground combat forces, The study focused on the possibilities inherent in the Future Combat System FCS and also considered enhancements possible through the Future Transport Rotorcraft FTR. Study efforts were conducted by four major Panels analyzing Operations, Information Dominance, Sustainment and Support, and Training. The study concludes 1 the FCS concept is sound, but senior level attention is required to ensure technologies are ready for 2006 FCS EMD and 2 Key technologies will significantly improve force projection and combat power. The Training Panel was asked to investigate 1 Army Training challenges in the 2015-2025 timeframe 2 C4ISR Training Issues 3 Sensor-to-shooter Training Issues 4 Distance Learning opportunities 5 Opportunities for Embedded Training. Respective findings include 1 Army will need to train Very Complex Tasks and there is little research on how to do if 2 C4ISR training can be both an enabler and Achilles heel of FCS effectiveness 3 Very Complex Tasks will need to be trained at lower echelons 4 Distance Learning should be train as you fight for FCS force 5 All FCS should have Network-Centric training. Recommendations include FCS Training Capability should be established as a Key Performance Parameter after Operational Performance in Milestones IIIII The Army should task ARI and STRICOM to establish FCS Training RD lab to develop and promote expertise in training very complex tasks The Army should develop an initial virtual, distributed, man-in-loop emulation and, The Army should integrate FCS training DL, embedded training, C4ISR, sensor-to- shooter into the Tactical Infosphere.
