Brigade commander discusses benefits of Integrated Training Environment
More than 600 Soldiers from the 2nd Brigade Combat Team of the 1st Cavalry Division participated in an exercise that combined live, virtual and constructive enablers. Last year’s exercise tested the computer software and hardware that allow the enablers to work with each other seamlessly. The computer software and hardware also stimulated Mission Command Systems with realistic information about unit actions – both live and simulated.

CSA announces Project Warrior
Critical to effectively managing this transition described in the Army Training Strategy is the development of agile and adaptive leaders. These leaders must be agile enough to rapidly adjust from conducting stability operations in a counterinsurgency one day to conducting offensive operations against a large conventional force the next. They must be adaptive to a broad spectrum of operational environmental conditions, with the professional acumen to recognize both opportunities and risks. One of the programs I am restarting to build these agile, adaptive leaders is Project Warrior.
