CGI option year one deliverables include:

  • publication-ready region and country-specific operational environment studies for operational planning, exercise, mission rehearsal, and individual/staff training for units across the Army
  • scenario development tools and a force-wide data repository
  • classroom-ready instruction, mobile training team augmentation, and combat training center support.
