During the exercise, the soldiers looked at additional training requirements and equipment considerations with regard to filling capability gaps when mitigating through a subterranean environment. During the exercise, the soldiers were taught various levels of breaching operations and provided hands on experience with using the tools. The AWG conducted the scenario based exercise in order to prepare the soldiers for their upcoming participation in a subterranean assessment at the Network Integration Evaluation 14.1 scheduled for November. AWG's end state for conducting the Risk Reduction Exercise and its upcoming participation in NIE 14.1 is to develop technique solutions to capability gaps with respect to subterranean operations and to ultimately develop an Army Techniques Publication on subterranean warfare for the force.
