The 2003 Printing This section details the effective and proven method of training the soldier in preliminary rifle marksmanship. The following marksmanship training guide contains the current tasks that are trained in basic rifle marksmanship programs, during basic combat training at Army training centers (ATCs), and during infantry one-station unit training (OSUT). It provides a basis for structuring unit sustainment programs. The unit normally performs a diagnostic test of the tasks and only conducts training on specific periods for soldiers who must improve their basic firing skills. Training is usually conducted in a shorter time frame than at IET.

An effective unit marksmanship program reflects the priority, emphasis, and interest of commanders and trainers. This chapter provides a proven rifle marksmanship training strategy as guidance in establishing and conducting an effective training program. The strategy consists of the progressive individual training periods taught during initial entry training (IET). It progresses into advanced skills and concludes with advanced reading material. Refresher training need only be conducted on periods that are deemed necessary. The proficiency attained by a soldier depends on proper training and application of the basic marksmanship fundamentals. During initial marksmanship training, emphasis is on learning the firing fundamentals, which are taught in four phases-preliminary rifle instruction, downrange feedback, field firing, and advanced firing exercises. This prepares soldiers for advanced optic and laser training for combat-type collective exercises and real world deployments.

Based on five years of marksmanship-related research for the U.S. Army, the characteristics of the M16A2 rifle developed by the Marine Corps were analyzed to determine what impact new rifle features would have on Army marksmanship training and on combat effectiveness. It was found that use of the M16A2 rifle by the Army would be extremely problematic, due in part to the vast differences between the marksmanship training philosophies of the Army and the Marine Corps. Numerous recommendations are presented which would result in simplified training and improved combat performance if adopted. Keywords: Aperture sight; Assault fire; Automatic fire; Ball ammunition; Ballistics; Battlesight zero; Dispersion; Collinater; M16A1 rifle; M16A2 rifle; Marksmanship; Sight adjustment; Tracer ammunition; Serviceability checks; Point of aim/point of impact; and Zeroing.

To determine the relation between simulation- (Laser Marksmanship Training System LMTS) and live-fire-based rifle marksmanship performance, 186 Reserve Component (RC) soldiers from Idaho and Oregon fired for qualification on a scaled LMTS version and live-fire version of the Army's standard pop-up target qualification course. LMTS was fired under either a dry-fire mode or a Blazer (i.e., sound/recoil replicator) mode. Statistically significant positive linear relations were found (and then validated) between first-run live-fire scores and both LMTS dry-fire- (r = .50) and Blazer-based (r = .55) scores. These relations were of sufficient strength to permit development of easy-to-use tools for accurately predicting soldier chances of first-run, live-fire qualification. With these tools, RC marksmanship trainers can implement a competency- based training program where soldiers most in need of remedial training (i.e., poor shooters) can be quickly identified, and the point at which sufficient training has been provided (i.e., when first-run live-fire qualification is likely) easily determined. These tools also provide RC unit commanders with empirically derived live-fire performance standards needed to support use of LMTS in place of live-fire for rifle marksmanship proficiency validation purposes when standard pop-up target course range facilities are not readily available. Although both tools will serve these purposes, that based on LMTS dry-fire is recommended because of the added expense of firing with Blazer without an accompanying statistically significant increased predictive benefit.

"Soldiers in the 21st century must possess the knowledge, skills, and other attributes to perform effectively in complex technical, information-rich environments. This study, Development of a Prototype Self-Assessment Program in Support of Soldier Competency Assessment, was conducted as a counterpart to the U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences' (ARI) Performance Measures for 21st Century Soldier Assessment (PerformM21). PerformM21 is a 3-year feasibility effort to identify viable approaches for an operational performance assessment system for Army enlisted personnel. In this study, the researchers identified the design and content of a self-assessment system (SAS) that would (a) help Soldiers feel confident about testing, (b) inform Soldiers about the junior noncommissioned officer (NCO) promotion system, and (c) familiarize Soldiers with the duties and responsibilities of NCOs. Information about best practices in the field of self-assessment/test preparation including what is done in the other Armed Services, academia, and the test industry was used to develop a prototype SAS that would explore the realm of test preparation functions, actions, and items that a typical Soldier would encounter during this phase. The prototype SAS reflects PerformM21 test parameters; it is web-based, targeted to E4 Soldiers, and focuses on the Army-wide core assessment."--P. i.

"This report presents an assessment of the Warrior Transition Course (WTC) training program, which is designed to provide initial entry training under the Blue to Green (B2G) recruiting program. The analysis was performed by ARI at the request of the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC). The assessment had four objectives: (1) provide a detailed overview of the WTC program and its participants, (2) prepare electronic databases of survey data, (3) conduct a comparative analysis of WTC and basic combat training (BCT), and (4) provide results of the assessment to include recommendations. A case study method was used and input was gathered through observations, interviews, surveys, and documentation reviews. Ten specific findings about the course were provided along with selected recommendations. The findings were as follows: (1) most WTC attendees were prior service, not transfers on active duty; (2) BCT and WTC were not comparable activities; (3) there was significant Soldier dissatisfaction in WTC; (4) Soldiers were not accurately informed about WTC prior to attendance; (5) physical demands predominate WTC issues; (6) WTC was too short; (7) leadership training was a concern; (8) administrative issues detracted from training; (9) use of Drill Sergeants was controversial; and (10) WTC will change when the course is transferred."--DTIC.
