In conjunction with the STAFFEX planning and OC training, the brigade established and trained its white cell to run the convoy live-fire exercise.
The C-IED working group output would lead to the development of the patrol schedule that drove the link for the training on the ground and the continuation of the STAFFEX into Phase III.
Using the same operational environment and products used and developed in the August STAFFEX, the brigade conducted a CPX in October 2014.
The brigade began receiving critical operational information a week before the exercise began so that the staff could continue with the MDMP initiated at the STAFFEX and prepare to execute the core reception, staging, and onward movement tasks during the CPX.
During a recent after-action review, one student compared the STAFFEX
to an "eMILPO qualification range.
