The AWE will
demonstrate potential solutions to future Marine Air Ground Task Force challenges.
It brings together the “Enhanced MAGTF Operations”(EMO) series of
experimentation into a single live-force experiment as part of the RIMPAC 2014 exercise.
The AWE is the culmination of a decade of progressive experimentation conducted
by the Warfighting Lab. It will encompass the results of previous experiments, highlight
selected technologies, and include the integration of Special Operations Forces
(SOF) in amphibious operations. Concurrently, the AWE serves as a bridge to its
follow-on program of wargaming, experimentation, and capability development
