He stated that the Army / TRADOC was targeting specialized training for units deploying to areas where this was a prevalent threat. Three months of research followed and HW was defined as a consortium of adversaries battling U.S. and partner forces across multiple battle spaces, some yet to be encountered. This was based on a review of more than 400 open source documents, articles and studies. The orange circles on the Conflict Areas map provide locations of HW activities that took place in the 2015-2016 timeframe.
