Advancing the Objective Force Through Mulitnational Coalitions and Interagency Task Forces
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
The proposed effort aims to develop a system that is responsive to the military's needs to develop high performing multinational teams. The goal of the project is to develop a theoretically grounded, computer-based, multination team preparation system. We envision four interrelated components forming the basis of a multinational coalition team preparation system. This system will support both individual and team training methods through use of asynchronous (individual) and synchronous (team) interaction modes. Multicultural and multinational team familiarization will be based on current team theory and is a method to educate team members about the nature of multination teamwork. A warfighting-peacekeeping continuum awareness section will apply lessons learned from recent military activity and the project team's own experiences in Bosnia to prepare soldiers for the information, resources, situations, and decisions they will face and develop appropriate adaptation mechanisms. Teamwork skill development will enhance individuals' ability to perform in a team setting. Finally, collaborative scenario based team preparation is a team-in-the-loop environment that will develop high performance multinational coalition teams. In Phase II, we will operationalize system requirements and develop a system to enhance multinational team performance in military and commercial environments.
