Defense Science Board Task Force on Training for Future Conflicts
DEFENSE SCIENCE BOARD WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
This is the second 21st century Defense Science Board report on military training. The report itself has a training goal instruct and convince the acquisition and personnel communities to recognize instinctively that 1 military proficiency is as dependent on the warriors who operate weapon systems as it is on the weapon system technology, and 2 a superb way to waste personnel or system acquisition money is to ignore training, or to tacitly allow training to pay the bills for acquisition or personnel system flaws in those more measurable arenas. Achieving this goal may take some time. Our first in 2001. Some of our recommendations have been implemented. Most have not. We will present a report card on their implementation in the executive summary. Nevertheless, either because of or in spite of our first report, there seems to be an increase in general awareness of the importance of training to warfare proficiency within the training communities. Less awareness exists outside them. The task force work described in this report is aimed at determining how our forces must prepare for conflicts in the future, 10 to 20 years from now.
