Sustaining Army Development
  • What aspects of the current operating environment and our response to it are of an enduring nature?
  • How does our response support the longer-term Development of the Army?
  • What are the known knowns, known unknowns, unknown unknowns?

FUTURE LAND OPERATIONAL CONCEPT – Future Operations

  • Evolving character of conflict
  • Enduring Land Force requirement to seize, hold and protect terrain, infrastructure and population
  • Complex Terrain – Urban, Underground, Littoral
  • Multiple Lines of Operation – Cross-Spectrum
  • Balance between War-fighting & Stability capabilities
  • Campaigning at the Operational Level – Corps HQ
  • Increased Discrimination and Sensitivity – use of lethal & non-lethal effects
  • Information Strategy – NEC, Computer Network Attack
  • Legal Environment
  • Contractor Support to Operations – increased utility?
