Abstract:

The primary operational challenge facing the U.S. military for the foreseeable future is that military planners cannot know a priority specifically where our military will be deployed, who our adversaries will be, and what weapons and systems will be necessary for a given mission. There is an increased emphasis on both the broader spectrum of military missions, such as peacekeeping, and a broader range of potential adversaries, such as terrorists. Requirements for future education and training systems must take due account of this expanding range of operational conditions and needs. Our forces must be highly adaptive learning forces that organize to meet threats effectively and rapidly. In particular, commanders must be able to make and implement decisions in a timely, efficient, and effective manner, most often with very limited information in a constantly changing, complex, and dangerous environment. This capability is often referred to as cognitive readiness--ensuring that the warfighter is mentally prepared for accomplishing the mission and is performing at their optimal performance level.
