Abstract : The Mounted Battlespace Battle Lab conducted the Advanced Warfighting Experiment Focused Dispatch in 1995 to examine the impact of the integration of digital systems on a Battalion Task Force organization, doctrine, and warfighting capabilities. This report augments the Focused Dispatch efforts and provides information that pertains to unit training with digital systems. The objectives of this research were to: (1) document the unit's training efforts, (2) capture the lessons learned, and (3) identify implications for future Force XXI training efforts. Data were collected using structured observations, surveys, and interviews. Lessons learned and implications identified were in nine key areas: training strategy, training management, training methods, prerequisite skills and knowledge, digital learning centers, simulation training, training literature, training assessment, and training support.
