JCOE in turn tasked a CMATT from Fort Bragg to assist the brigade.
To provide a foundation for staff analysis, JCOE trainers worked with brigade and BCTC planners to develop the scenario and range of historically significant activities relevant to the battalion's future area of operations.
Figure 2 lists the individual and special equipment training provided by the JCOE and CMATT.
The JCOE provided much of the required equipment and helped contract Arabic linguists for the training.
The output of the initial IPR was a memorandum of understanding between the 130th Engineer Brigade, JCOE, and CMATT that laid out all areas of training and resourcing responsibility.
To do this, the brigade planner, JCOE trainers, and BCTC staff conducted numerous IPRs to collect and analyze data from theater in the 65th Engineer Battalion's future area of operations.
The brigade staff provided OCs and was supported by staff trainers from the JCOE.
