Abstract : A prototype job aid titled Battle Staff Guide for Selected Digital Information Systems was produced and evaluated to support the training and job performance requirements of a combined arms battalion task force equipped with digital communications systems. The job aid presents troop leading procedures task information in a flexible checklist format. While participating in the Army's Advanced Warfighting Experiment, Focused Dispatch (AWE FD), the battle staff of the U.S. Army Armor School's 16th Cavalry Regiment, 2nd Battalion, 33rd Armor Task Force (TF 2-33 AR), reviewed the prototype job aid and gave positive support to the development of such materials. Battle staff feedback identified new approaches to command and control that take advantage of advanced capabilities offered by the new digital systems to allow for rapid and dispersed operations.
