The anticipated ability of the Future Force to See First requires proactive research to transform the emerging concepts of embedded training and networked sensors into assets. This report documents initial research on an innovative training program to provide small unit commanders the tactical and technical skills needed to exploit networked sensors to meet the See First objective. The research addressed three areas design of a prototype embedded training program on networked sensors, design of a subset of training exercises for the training program, and development of those exercises in a prototype command and control C2 system compatible with virtual simulation. Design and development stressed a structured training approach with progressive simulation-based exercises. A representative subset of 20 exercises were developed that focused on exploiting an array of networked sensors on unmanned air vehicles UAVs to support the commanders critical information requirements. Results provide lessons learned on technology dependent training that will be used to refine and extend the prototype training on employing networked sensors, and that may apply to the Armys ongoing effort to develop embedded training for the Future Force.
