The Training Brain Operations Center, or TBOC, is a key component of the Operational Environment Enterprise. This Enterprise manages how the Army identifies, defines, replicates and integrates the depth and complexity of the present and future Operational Environment, or OE, for training, leader development and education, and concept and capabilities development. The Enterprise uses extensive real-world information, including reporting from the combat theaters, to create realistic live, virtual, constructive and gaming environments for Soldiers, leaders and units. The TBOC transforms this real-world information to support exercises, creating visualizations of actual combat events and training simulations for individuals and units.
Throughout the last 12 years of war, U.S. Army Soldiers – men and women – have fought side by side on the battlefield. Today, the Army is capitalizing both on battlefield lessons learned and tremendous advancements in the Army Profession. Soldier 2020 leverages these lessons learned and advancements by working to better match Soldiers of today with the demands of specific military occupational specialties.
The Army Leader Development Strategy, or ALDS, outlines the Army senior leaders’ vision and strategy for leader development of all Army professionals through lifelong training, education and experiences acquired through opportunities in the operational, institutional and self-development domains.
The One Army School System is comprised of Active and Reserve Component schools, designed to provide relevant and realistic institutional training to an AFORGEN-based Army in an era of persistent conflict. Right-sized and responsive to the mission, OASS will improve Army readiness.
The Army is working to gain formal recognition for skills Soldiers learn and for their experience in the Army. This credentialing will increase Soldiers’ ability to find rewarding jobs when they leave active duty, and will enhance skills while serving. To expand credentialing, U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command and other Army agencies are working with civilian credentialing bodies and federal and state licensing agencies. The initial focus is on manufacturing-related skills. Future efforts will include health care, information technology, transportation and logistics.
