Abstract : Past research exercises at the Fort Leavenworth Research Unit have measured battle command skills of visualization and forecasting. A highly favorable response to these exercises coupled with CD-ROM capability to vividly present combat training center battles led to the current initiative: develop multimedia prototype instructional modules aimed at facilitating battle command competencies of visualization, information assimilation, forecasting, analysis, and battle-decision making. This initiative utilizes information from observations and interviews at the Command and General Staff College's School for Command Preparation and of battle commanders and observer/controllers during National Training Center (NTC) rotations. Users are presented with NTC battles and prompted to make predictions, critiques, and other responses. The report structures synthesis of multimedia capability with battle command research to provide a CD-ROM tool that supports the developing educational needs of battle commanders.
