Abstract : The intent of the Combined Arms Sufficiency Study as originally conducted, was to obtain a snapshot of the status of Combined Arms instruction at the time and provide commandants comparative data with which they could make an educated estimate of the effectiveness of their combined arms instruction. The original intent is still applicable. The purpose of the current update is to build on the original study, refine the Combined Arms Sufficiency data, and through a systematic process, identify courses of action to continue to enhance Combined Arms instruction in company level professional development courses. This update is intended to develop Combined Arms Sufficiency data to a credible confidence level so that decisions can be made on tradeoffs and accommodations, with a clear understanding of what the costs are in terms of specialty and Combined Arms understanding. The objectives of the present Combined Arms Sufficiency update are to: identify all Combined Arms subjects and develop an updated list; identify Combined Arms subjects which should be taught in Officer Basic and Advanced Courses, and to what level of sufficiency; enhance Combined Arms instruction by better defining personnel and other resource requirements; and facilitate the infusion of Combined Arms subjects into the OJTA process.
