Abstract : The performances, knowledges, and skills are given which are necessary for the Infantry rifle squad leader to use the compass and maps or map substitutes to obtain knowledge of the terrain; to receive and transmit orders, instructions, and intelligence information; to select routes and checkpoints and prepare quantitative route descriptions; and to navigate over unfamiliar terrain by map-terrain association when the existence of distinct terrain features and the level of visibility will permit.
