How Threat Tec Threat Studies are Shaping Military Decision Making

While Threat Tec utilizes the latest in threat technology, manufacturing and analysis to effectively replicate new and emerging threats, it is also capable of compiling research data to do more than training for warfare simulation. With a variety of military backgrounds and operational experience at the tactical, operational, and strategic levels, Threat Tec Subject Matter Experts compile research on threat doctrine, tactics, techniques, equipment and procedures for various threat studies that are used transversely through branches and levels of our military.

These unclassified studies are often used as a training tool or “user-guide” for military non-experts on a country or region’s national command authority.  A threat study is a simplified, user-friendly training booklet that affords a reader the procurement of a basic understanding on the abilities and tactical supposition of a threat in the case of a potential conflict. This includes the use of extensive charts and tables to summarize large quantities of unclassified researched information to ensure the reader is able to understand trends as well as current and expected future capabilities, including potential gaps. Having this compiled booklet of thorough yet compounded information, gives leaders across the military the ability to utilize our knowledge in an expedited manner making tactical maneuvers more efficient, resulting in a higher success rate in exercise scenarios. By simplifying information, we are able to reduce training prep time by eliminating the timely and tedious task of searching for accurate information on a potential threat.

Threat Studies are imperative for training and development, as they are often used for classified and unclassified exercises and scenarios where a participant is given a limited amount of time to manage a potential threat simulation. The threat study is used to expeditiously equip a participant with the necessary details on the simulated threat to advocate for the successful mission outcome while being mindful of all situational terrains and potential Opposing Force (OPFOR) tactics. The results from these classified and unclassified exercises impact how the military’s present tactics, techniques, and procedures are adjusted to adequately ensure the success of potential future threat situations.
