Abstract : The objective of this database specification project is the development of specifications for a BCTP research database and to provide a concrete plan to improve the utility of, and accessibility to, BCTP generated training data for all current and future users. This document summarizes our understanding of the BCTP operational environment with regard to how units and staffs train, specific duties and responsibilities of BCTP and contract staff, and the data produced by BCTP processes. Our goal is to understand the data completely enough to lay the groundwork for a BCTP database that will have enduring value for a number of users in the pursuit of lessons learned, in feedback to units being trained, in the study of systemic issues affecting the Army, and as a means to enhance/improve the BCTP program itself. Data which are currently created during a BCTP rotation: CBS computer data tapes, BTCM data, the Intelligence Journal System, OC notes and checklists, Automated Journal System reports, BCTP Analyst generated data, WAARS generated reports, Unit-generated data, AAR video tapes and hard copies, FER, PSP, ACCES, FER database, White Cell directives etc.
