This report describes development of the multiechelon Brigade and Battalion Staff Exercise (BBSE), a product of the third project entitled "Combined Arms Operations at Brigade Level, Realistically Achieved Through Simulation" (COBRAS III). The BBSE is a structured simulation-based exercise of three missions. It provided multiechelon practice opportunities for the commanders and staffs of the conventionally equipped brigade and its maneuver battalions. The focus is on multiechelon performance objectives that cross battlefield functions. Implementation conditions include 24-hour operations, deployed command posts, and concurrent planning and execution. Program evaluation data were collected during a trial implementation with 3 Brigade, 2 Infantry Division (Fort Lewis). The results of the data analysis indicated that the training support package (TSP) was adequate in content and organization. Training audience members and observers perceived the training as valuable, especially but not exclusively for experienced staff preparing for a deployment or combat training center (CTC) exercise.
