Embedded training and the training requirements for the Abrams main battle tank
MetadataShow full item record
The Abrams tank has had an Operational Requirements Document (ORD) requirement for embedded training (ET) since 1994 and has successfully demonstrated the capability as early as 2001. The most challenging aspect of implementing ET has been to get the Abrams combat development community (User) and materiel development community (Product Manager) to equally consider the need for ET among competing combat capability. The need and priority for embedded training has not been effectively conveyed. Due to the interpretations of embedded training requirements, the direction to PM Abrams to implement embedded training has been weak at best, while the perceived User need for ET continues to grow. Since the technology has been demonstrated, the combat developer has begun to understand the capability and more effectively define the desired state (how he would use it and its benefits). Furthermore, the Army's style of fighting has changed; therefore, the Army's method of training must also change. Embedded training should be recognized by the materiel developer as an essential training tool necessary to keep Soldiers' skills sharp in the changing training environment.
