The U.S. Army Intelligence Center of Excellence has partnered with the Training and Doctrine Command Capability Manager=Sensor Processing, Distributed Common Ground System-Army team to design the tactical engagement team concept for mission command functions.
The Army said Tuesday that the TeT concept calls on military intelligence subject-matter personnel to train operational soldiers on how to use DCGS-A tools as part of the “Win in a Complex World” Army Operating Concept.
“TCM-SP brought in a world-class team of experts to address everything from DCGS-A best practices to brigade-level training strategies,” said Lt. Col. Marc Spinuzzi, a senior intelligence officer for the 1st Infantry Division.
USAICoE and TCM-SP (DCGS-A) worked with the U.S. Army Forces Command and U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command to form a TeT that would help forces perform core intelligence tasks that meet unit-specific objectives through the use of DCGS-A as a weapons system, the report said.
To pilot the concept, the TeT has held a series of planning and training sessions with the 1st Infantry Division on DCGS-A system tools, intelligence production and interoperability with the Army Battle Command System.
“The majority of our after-action report comments were requests for more, which was a great sign,” Spinuzzi noted.
