Abstract : This monograph examines the effectiveness of major changes made to task force level reconnaissance as a result of a 1987 Rand Corporation Study. These changes are analyzed by categories established in the original report - doctrine, training, and equipment. The monograph first examines the methodology and significant findings of the Rand study. The changes made to the doctrine, training, and equipment are then presented to determine the results of the Rand study on ground reconnaissance. Next, current performance of units at the National Training Center is analyzed to determine the effectiveness of reconnaissance since implementation of these changes. Additionally, factors not studied by Rand are examined to provide additional insight into current performance.
