Video – Introduction to the Battlespace Operating Systems

Across Army, there is a wide range of trades, specialties and career pathways, and for many it can be a long time between opportunities to practice and enhance our tactical skills. For those not actively involved in combat roles, often the only opportunity to intensively practice all-corps tactical skills are career courses, and it can often be around five years between those courses. Understandably, there is a lot of skill fade that can occur if you don’t practice these skills or create chances to refresh your knowledge.

This video, produced by ALPC, provides an introduction to the Battlespace Operating Systems (BOS). It provides an overview of the BOS including concepts of fighting power & professional mastery, as well as a brief introduction to each of the BOS’ and their key capabilities.

This video allows you to gain a thorough understanding of BOS capabilities to assist you in developing COAs when deriving tactical plans. It will no doubt improve the quality of your next TEWT.

Watch the video to refresh your knowledge on the overall BOS concept, and take a look at our other videos in this series to examine each of the individual BOS’ in more detail.
