Army Explores Strategies, Challenges for Future Force Development

1 min read

army stock photoThe U.S. Army has conducted a study of emerging operational, strategic and tactical challenges as the military service aims to identify methods to prevent overmatch by adversaries through 2025 and beyond, the Army News Service reported Monday.

David Vergun writes Brig. Gen. Lee Quintas, director of the Army Capabilities Integration Center’s concept development and learning directorate, said the Unified Quest study involved the analysis of the branch’s current structure as well as various transregional issues.

“We looked at our airborne brigades and realized as we did the analysis that they lacked tactical mobility, they lacked reconnaissance capability and lacked mobile protective firepower,” Quintas told a media roundtable event Friday.

Gary Phillips, a senior intelligence advisor at the Army’s Training and Doctrine Command, noted at the same forum that the adoption of cyber and electronic warfare technologies by U.S. adversaries poses a threat to the country’s defense systems.

Phillips added the Army is interested in the development of a third-offset strategy to address threats.
