Abstract:

A Training Impact Analysis was conducted to support the Analysis of Alternatives AoA for the Land Warrior LW Block II system. Four equipment alternatives were compared three varied the basis of issue for the LW to squad leaders and above, to fire team leaders and above, and to all Soldiers. Training time, number of instructors, number of LW systems, and ammunition were estimated for each alternative. The greatest training impact was with the alternative in which all Soldiers had a system, as compared to alternatives in which only leaders had systems. Existing Infantry courses increased in length as core subjects and prerequisite skills could not be deleted from the programs of instruction. Marksmanship and land navigation training were the two individual tasks that had the greatest impact due to the high proficiency level desired by the Infantry School and constraints on throughput created by restrictions in training areasranges. The results were included in the February 2005 AoA briefing to the Study Advisory Group. The analysis provides a solid base for estimating future training impacts if the LW system is modified, additional data on training times are obtained, or programs of instruction are changed.
