Abstract : The After Action Review (AAR) is the Army's approach for providing feedback to units after collective training exercises. AAR systems should support the goals of analyzing what happened during an exercise, deciding why it happened, and identifying potential corrective actions. In an effort to reduce duplication of efforts, the Army is developing a Standardized Army AAR System (STAARS) for application across the live, virtual, and constructive environments. This report presents lessons learned about the AAR process, operational AAR systems, and prototype AAR systems that provide input for specifying STAARS capabilities or identify technical or behavioral issues to be addressed by research and development.
