2. Relationship to Operational Capabilities
The Combined Arms Training Strategy (CATS) is the Army's architecture for training and educating its people and units. CATS provides the conceptual framework for establishing training policy and resource requirements. The objective of the CATS architecture is to provide doctrine-based strategies for training warfighting tasks and skills in institutions, units, and through self-development.
Under Project Reliance, the Army manpower, personnel, and training R&D community has the Department of Defense lead for development and demonstration of technology for:
- Unit collective training
- Rotary-wing pilot training
- Land warfare training
- Human resources
- Leader development
Table III-P-1 presents the correlation between TRADOC's Battlefield Dynamics and training system upgrades and advanced concepts (SU/ACs). It also shows proposed training system capabilities by Battlefield Dynamics. Simulation-based training and training strategies cut across all Battlefield Dynamics, although special emphasis is given to combined arms operations for both large and small units.
