Abstract : The Advanced Warfighting Experiment (AWE) known as Operation Desert Hammer VI utilized a large number of digital materiel systems. Some of the digital hardware had not been completely developed and, in some cases, was still embryonic. The intention of this article is not to discuss all of these developmental items, but to enumerate the materiel lessons learned from this experiment and examine the corrections to be applied to materiel as the Army moves toward digitization. Suggestions for improvements to the hardware used in this experiment were solicited from after-action reviews, questionnaires, and group meetings with the NTC observers/controllers (QIC), subject matter experts (SME) from TRADOC schools and battle labs, and the participants from Task Force 1-70, Fort Knox, Ky. The suggestions from these personnel will not be attributed to any specific group because the similarity of each group's suggestions makes it nearly impossible to assign authorship.
