The CQD scenario portion of the exercise was a part of a "crawl, walk, run" piece to the exercise in assisting the soldier in determining what surface tactic, techniques and procedures were applicable to the subterranean environment. The AWG conducted the subterranean risk reduction 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.
