Live training is the United States Marine Corps"preferred method of training for ground combat units. However, such training practices prove difficult in providing detailed assessment of the participants"performance because of a number of factors including the number of participants and the complexity of the tasks performed. While live exercises provide maximum realism and fidelity for ground combat operations, no automated assessment of performance is currently available. Efforts are underway to instrument a number of facilities to capture mission rehearsal performance. However, in order to exploit the data collected, the Marine Corps needs to define performance measures for both teams and individuals in these live-training exercises. By automating the computation of these measures and incorporating them into an effective After Action Review process, the Marine Corps can combine the fidelity of live-training exercises with automated measurement and enhanced feedback.
