Abstract : New command, control, and communication technologies will affect soldier training requirements. Emerging training requirements for Army leaders include: (a) competency on a wider variety of tasks, (b) the ability to exploit the capabilities of new technologies, and (c) a clear understanding of digital tactics, techniques, and procedures. The current effort, Simulation-Based Multiechelon Training Program for Armor Units - Digital (SIMUTA-D), contributes a first step toward solving some of the key training challenges faced by Force XXI. The SIMUTA-D program features Movement to Contact, Deliberate Attack, and Defense in Sector training support packages which support execution-focused, battalion task force staff training for the digitally-equipped battlefield. This orientation guide provides the training unit with sufficient information to prepare to conduct training for the digital battlefield in a virtual (SIMulation Networking SIMNET) or constructive (Janus) environment. In addition, it serves as a quick reference that briefly describes the essential duties and responsibilities of the training unit and an observer/controller team.
