Abstract : This document provides analysis results from an Arroyo Center research project investigating company-level command and control (C2) factors related to effective direct fire control at the Army's National Training Center (NTC). This study analyzes possible problems with company-level direct fire control, terrain and enemy analysis, and command and control planning and preparation, explores how these problems affect combat effectiveness at NTC, and discusses implications for current training methods and policies. It is the third part of a RAND NTC research project that investigated battalion-level C2 issues and brigade and battalion reconnaissance issues. This research was sponsored by the Commanding General, U.S. Army Armor Center, and was conducted within the Arroyo Center's Manpower and Training Program. The Arroyo Center is a federally funded research and development center sponsored by the United States Army.
