Defense Urban Terrain - Army AWG

Post by Patriots » April 28th, 2018, 4:06 pm

Defense Urban Terrain presents new challenges to every U.S. Army soldier ... it's where the future fight will take place. Soldiers must be trained and prepared to operate in an environment of congested roadways, overflowing slums, and mazes of subterranean infrastructures, while minimizing civilian casualties ... which is central to the efforts of the U.S. Army Asymmetric Warfare Group (AWG).

The AWG was officially activated on January 31, 2006 ... evolving from the early combat experiences in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. The AWG was one of three significant capabilities developed to rapidly respond to emerging combat requirements along with the Improvised Explosive Device (IED) Task Force, which later transformed into the Joint IED Defeat Organization (JIEDDO), and the Rapid Equipping Force (REF).

The mission of the AWG is to provide operational advisory support and develop rapid operational solutions to the Army and Joint Forces to defeat current and emerging threats, enhance combat effectiveness, and inform Army future requirements. To accomplish this mission, the AWG is organized into three regionally-aligned operational squadrons, a concepts integration squadron, and a training and assessment squadron. The AWG improves Army readiness by enabling adaptation in the preparation for, and in the conduct of, combat and contingency operations. The Group also informs Army future force development and modernization decisions.
