Before the JCF-AWE, the 10th Mountain Division conducted new-equipment training, field-training exercises, command-post exercises, computer-training sessions, and contractor meetings/ refinements.
The JCF-AWE also developed tactical and experimental objectives that were nested within the overarching objectives.

The mini-mine detector (MIMID) (Figure 3) was one of the best pieces of equipment tested during the JCF-AWE. The MIMID is based on the AN/PSS-12 handheld mine detector but is collapsible and more compact and has an improved package carrier.
The HMEE was very reliable during the entire JCF-AWE. It always stayed mission-capable and was an integral part of the brigade's defensive effort.
During the MOUT phase of the JCF-AWE, the T3 showed potential for unmanned breaching and clearing operations in built-up terrain.
The MCS-Light, a software program that allows engineers to effectively increase C2, is the baseline maneuver tool in the digital architecture for the 10th Mountain Division JCF-AWE. The system's unique features include the ability to post overlays and orders electronically, display real-time situational awareness of blue and near real-time of red unit icons, "chat" with other elements through the use of Microsoft(r) NetMeeting, and share common desktop folders and white boards.
