Without a data base, unit commanders and training managers in the U.S. Army are left to plan their training based on what they perceive as their unit's weaknesses while analysis agencies are helpless to assist in providing meaningful direction to training efforts. With a data base drawn from ARTEP or SQT type evaluations, analysis agencies could model both the hardware parameters associated with equipment and the human parameters associated with unit or individual performance. Such modelling efforts could provide results which would be helpful in measuring the cost effectiveness tradeoffs associated with various levels of unit or individual training. The purpose of this study is to explore what data should be collected during Army training exercises in order to facilitate analysis through combat models. More specifically, this thesis will examine a Mechanized Infantry Platoon and Squad in the Active Defense and recommend measures of perform. ance which are representative of the various functional areas which make up the Active Defense. Data representative of these measures of performance could then theoretically be used to accomplish analysis of training alternatives as previously discussed.
