Modular Forces Overview

19 January 2005

COL Rickey E. Smith

Director, Futures Center Forward


Slide2 l.jpg

The Strategic Context

  • We are a nation at war

  • This is a prolonged period of conflict for the US with great uncertainty about the nature and location of that conflict

  • We must be able to defuse crises and/or defeat aggression early to prevent escalation, limit damage

  • Thus, we need flexible, rapidly deployable forces and sufficient depth and strength to sustain multiple, simultaneous operations

We have over 274,000 SOLDIERS overseas in over 100 countries (~ 26 brigade combat teams)

Combatant Commanders need versatile, potent land power


Slide3 l.jpg

Challenges for the Current Force

  • War is the norm, peace is the exception

  • Our adversaries seek adaptive advantage through asymmetry

  • We have near peer competitors in niche areas

  • Conventional Force on Force conflicts are still possible

  • There is an enormous pool of potential combatants armed with irreconcilable ideas

  • Our homeland is part of the battlespace

  • We are adapting to these challenges NOW

DIVISION

= ~15,000 Soldiers & Equipment

(typically over 30,000 when deployed)

What the Current Force Looks Like

  • The Army Division = traditional building block

  • But…

    • Optimized for major land campaigns against similarly organized forces

    • Large, fixed organizations with interconnected parts

    • Requires extensive reorganization to create force packages

    • Limits Regional Combatant Commander’s ability to mix and match packaged capabilities for multiple missions

    • Limited Joint capabilities

We’re good, but we can be better…


Slide6 l.jpg

How to Change

We must create units that are more relevant to Regional Combatant Commanders and generate versatile combat power with units that are…

  • More self-contained, sustainable, lethal force packages

  • Organized with capabilities for the full range of missions

  • Truly joint interdependent – a trained and ready member of the joint force

  • Comprised of adaptive, competent, and confident Soldiers and leaders

A Campaign Quality Army with Joint and Expeditionary Capabilities

What Isn’t Changing

The Soldier is the Centerpiece of All Our Units

Why We are Changing the Army

Back Up Slides


Csa guidance august 2003 l.jpg

Create a modular “brigade-based” Army that is more responsive to Regional Combatant Commanders’ needs, better employs Joint capabilities, facilitates force packaging and rapid deployment, and fights as more self-contained units in non-linear, non-contiguous battlespaces.

Approach:

Create modular, standing 3 and 2 star headquarters for assignment to regional combatant commanders to command and control Army, Joint, and multinational forces

Create modular heavy and infantry Brigade Combat Team Units of Action designed and organized to deploy and fight on arrival as under the Joint Force Commander or a designated Army commander

Create modular multifunctional Support Brigades designed and organized to deploy and fight on arrival in support of Joint or Army headquarters and/or Brigade Combat Team Units of Action

Use combinations of the modular constructs defined in headquarters and brigades to create flexible, scalable forces in response to regional combatant commander needs.

Brief the Regional Combatant Commanders and Army Service Component Commanders (ASCC) on work in progress … gain their insights.

  • Premium is on infantry strength and mechanical transport

  • Mobile protected firepower is an asset

  • Mission Category 1

  • Offensive, Defensive, and Security Missions in open or mixed terrain

  • Against either regular or irregular forces

  • Premium on mobile protected firepower balanced with dismounted infantry

  • Mission Category 3

  • Offensive and Defensive Missions in close terrain (mountains, jungle, forests) against either regular or irregular forces

  • Premium is on infiltration by foot and air assault mobility

Projecting the Army Worldwide

  • Units not tied to division base.

  • Simultaneous deployment from multiple power projection platforms.

  • Basing supports a campaign quality Army with joint and expeditionary capabilities.

  • Power projection platforms provide full range of support for responsive deployment, employment and sustainment of forces.

  • Fires Bde: Close support and precision strike employing Joint and organic fires and capabilities to achieve distributive effects.

  • Battlefield Surveillance Bde: Reconnaissance, surveillance, target acquisition and intelligence operations to build the common operational picture in order to focus joint combat power and effects.

  • Maneuver Enhancement Bde: Protection for the supported HQ - executing limited offensive, defensive, and stability missions to prevent or mitigate the effects of hostile actions or environments to preserve freedom of action.

  • Sustainment Bde: Plan, coordinate, synchronize, monitor, and control sustainment within assigned Area of Operations. Conduct Host Nation Support (HNS) and contracting. Provide support to joint, interagency, and multinational agencies on order.


Support brigades common characteristics l.jpg

Completely tailorable/scaleable - flexible task organization based on METT-TC

Modular - subordinates can plug in and out of Support Brigade Headquarters easily

Networked - with connectivity and LNO package to work directly for any UE, joint, Service or functional HQ (MARFOR, JFACC) as well as multinational HQ (NATO Rapid Reaction Force HQ, etc)

Inherently joint – uses, and contributes to, other Service capabilities (network connectivity, ISR, fires, lift, etc)

Agile - can reinforce other brigades with subordinate capabilities

Multifunctional - each headquarters employs multiple branch capabilities to accomplish a broad, ongoing, function

Maneuver Enhancement Brigade

Mission: Enables and enhances the full dimensional protection and freedom of maneuver of a supported Army, joint or multinational headquarters by shaping, leveraging or mitigating the effects of the operational environment at the tactical and operational levels. It augments maneuver and support brigades with functional assets to optimize the tailored capabilities of those organizations and enhance force application, protection, and focused logistics across multiple areas of operation and can provide a headquarters to command and control an assigned area of operations including maneuver forces.
