Abstract : This report is a research byproduct that documents the Front End Analysis for development of the Brigade-Battle Staff Training System (BDE-BSTS). BDE-BSTS, a set of functional area training packages for brigade level staff officers, is a combination of text and computer based instruction (CBI). Sponsored by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the BDE-BSTS was developed for use by the U.S. Army National Guard (ARNG). The prototype BSTS comprised 13 courses for training brigade staff officers in individual functional areas and those tasks required to prepare staffs for collective battle staff tasks. The BSTS program , sponsored under the DARPA program umbrella of Simulation in Training for Advanced Readiness (SIMITAR), is coordinated with three other programs: Simulation Based Mounted Brigade Training Program (SIMBART), Simulation Based Multiechelon Training for Armor Units (SlMTA), and Combat Service Support (CSS) Training System Development for the National Guard.
