Abstract : As the Airland Battle doctrine continues to evolve, the need for enhanced coordination between the ground and air forces becomes ever more critical. To meet this requirement the military has instituted a number of organizational reforms, such as unified commands and an emphasis on staff training in interservice operations. The Gulf War further highlighted the need for increased training at the tactical level. The increased emphasis on joint operations and the availability of the Combat Training Centers that employ Airland Battle scenarios make it both practical and worthwhile to develop an air-ground training and feedback system. The AGTFS provides for the results to be organized into a common database. This will allow all services access to information to identify systemic issues, guide training development, and provide feedback to units on their performance during training. The data collection will provide a quantifiable basis for further training resource requirements.
