Abstract:

Situational Awareness is classified by variables representing Friendly, Enemy, and Terrain factors. Classes of SA Particles are formed as expressions by single or combined variables. The particle is the smallest discrete amount of SA useful to Rifle Platoon, Squad, andor Fire Team Leaders during close combat operations. The purpose of this study has been to investigate and assess Situational Awareness needs of small-unit Infantry leaders in the context of infantry fire maneuver tactics and capabilities of the Future Force Warrior FFW system to meet those needs. In this study military subject-matter experts assume roles within a rifle platoon in a Military Operation on Urban Terrain MOUT operation wargame and provide feedback about information needs and the potential for FFW equipment to meet those needs.
