Soldiers from Company B, 1st Battalion, 6th Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Armored Division of the Brigade Modernization Command learn ascending and descending techniques from members of the Vermont National Guard's 15th Civil Support Team and Army Mountain Warfare School personnel while participating in the U.S. Army Asymmetric Warfare Group's Subterranean Risk Reduction Exercise in September. Because of the potential requirements for ascending and descending into and out of confined subterranean spaces, the AWG collaborated with the two organizations in teaching the soldiers participation in the exercise various rope work, ascending and descending techniques. AWG's end state for 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 develop an Army Techniques Publication on subterranean warfare for the force.
