    1. Sustaining the Force Soldier First Major General SV Mayall Assistant Chief of the General Staff UK Army Sustaining Army Development

    2. Sustaining Army Development “The Future starts today”

    3. “Who wants change? Things are bad enough the way they are.” - Lord Salisbury

    4. “If you don’t like change, you’ll like irrelevance even less” - General Eric Shinseki

    5. “The first, the supreme, the most far-reaching act of judgement that the statesman and commander have to make is to establish the kind of war on which they are embarking; neither mistaking it for, nor trying to turn it into something that is alien to its nature.” - Karl Von Clausewitz

    6. What are we engaged in? The Long War Crisis Global War on Terrorism The Terrorist’s War on Us – Rudolph Guiliani Persistent Conflict ……..and “Dark Futures”

    7. Army Strategic Intent “To sustain and develop the capability to achieve current and future operational success.”

    8. Defence Vision CGS Intent Army Strategic Intent: Sustain Current and future operational success Relevance The Core Objective (Programmed & Contingent) Sustain the capability to fight at all scales of effort and at the highest intensity The Principal Effort – ‘Sustaining Current Operations’ Support HMG in achieving strategic success in Iraq and Afghanistan within the context of the GCT campaign.

    9. 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?

    10. Risk Balance Investment in the Future Support to Current Operations

    11. 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?

    12. The Components of Fighting Power Moral Conceptual Physical

    13. Governmental Development Context Defence Policy Resource Allocation Alliances

    14. “….governments do not have as much choice about whether to participate or stay out as they think they do – particularly whilst they were still in opposition…………. one does not always have the luxury of choice and it would be very unwise to predicate our policy and budget on avoiding trouble” - Lord Guthrie, Feb 07

    15. Societal Development Context Media Influence Legality/Legitimacy Sustaining our Place in Society

    16. Capacity to War-Fight - Recuperation Development Context Sustaining the Divisional Level (Find, Fix, Strike, Exploit – Deep, Close, Rear – Plan and Execute) Large Scale – Op vs Higher Tactical Level Recuperation

    17. Enduring Elements of Current Ops Development Context Endurance Overlap Asymmetry Force Protection Complexity Operating Amongst the People Accountability

    18. Current Aspirations Re-setting the Contingent Component 2011/2015 Support to current operations Sustaining Army Development Soldier First (Re-Balancing the Covenant) Hardening & Networking the Force

    19. “US CSA Army Strategy” Sustain: Soldiers, families and Army Civilians Prepare for the Current Conflict Reset for Future Contingencies Transform for the 21st Century

    20. “US CSA Army Strategy” “The Ends are to rebalance by 2011, the Ways are the 4 elements of this CSA Strategy, the Means is money; and plenty of it……” - Senior US Officer

    21. Sustaining Army Development • Future Army Structures start-line • Expeditionary, Deployable, Flexible • ………“Hardening”, “Integrating” and “Rebalancing” the Force………

    22. “Hardening” • Encompasses resilience, robustness and toughness – across Lines of Development • Increase in Army’s size – broadening and deepening of structures and establishments within FAS baseline

    23. “Hardening” • Encompasses resilience, robustness and toughness – across Defence Lines of Development • Increase in Army’s size– broadening and deepening of structures and establishments within FAS baseline • Improvements in equipment capability • FRES • Dismounted Close Combat • Future Infantry Soldier Technology • Communications • Helicopters

    24. “Hardening” • Encompasses resilience, robustness and toughness – across Defence Lines of Development • Increase in Army’s size– broadening and deepening of structures and establishments within FAS baseline • Improvements in equipment capability • Better resourced individual and collective training

    25. “Hardening” • Across Defence Lines of Development  • Encompasses resilience, robustness and toughness • Increase in Army’s size broadening and deepening of structures & establishments • Improvements in equipment capability • Better resourced individual and collective training • Greater sustainability levels – better sustainability solutions

    26. “Hardening” • Across Defence Lines of Development  • Encompasses resilience, robustness and toughness • Increase in Army’s size broadening and deepening of structures & establishments • Improvements in equipment capability • Better resourced individual and collective training • Greater sustainability levels • Retention of battle-hardened soldiers and officers

    27. “Hardening” • Across Defence Lines of Development  • Encompasses resilience, robustness and toughness • Increase in Army’s size broadening and deepening of structures & establishments • Improvements in equipment capability • Better resourced individual and collective training • Greater sustainability levels • Retention of battle-hardened soldiers and officers • Support to Families • “Recruit the Soldier; Retain the Family” • Pay & Conditions

    28. “Integrating” Society Regular, TA and Reserves Other Services CIS and NEC in EP Integrating NATO, EU, US and other Allies OGDs and NGOs Industry Through Life Capability Management

    29. Re-Balancing the Force • Re-roling to support current operations • Homogenous Combat Arm Structures • Joint Medium Weight Capability • Heavy, Medium & Light Forces • Mass vs Technology • Access to Capability

    30. Sustaining Army Development • Development issues………

    31. Development Issues - Experimentation • Spiral Technology Development

    32. Development Issues – Air/Land Integration

    33. Development Issues – ISTAR Coordination

    34. Development Issues - Influence Activities

    35. Development Issues - Comprehensive Approach
