Developing a Campaign Quality Army with Joint and Expeditionary Capabilities 19 October 2004 LTG Mark Curran Director, Futures Center US Army Training and Doctrine Command TRADOC: Where Tomorrows Victories Begin The Strategic Context We are a nation at war This is a prolonged period of conflict for the U.S. 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 We have more than 350,000 SOLDIERS overseas in 120 countries deployable forces and sufficient depth and strength to sustain multiple, simultaneous operations Combatant Commanders need versatile, potent land power 2 Joint Operational Environment (JOE) Global battlespace - No sanctuaries Power of media/transnational

organizations Growth and alignment of non-state actors Access to data, information, knowledge Increasingly difficult AORs Proliferation of WMD / precision weapons Future Adversaries: Counter high-tech with low-tech methods Near-peer threats in selected niche areas Sophisticated asymmetric strategies Masters of own environments Endure long campaigns Difficult to predict 3 Future Force Critical Capabilities Develop a Campaign-Quality Army with Joint and Expeditionary Capabilities Broad range of capabilities with multiple military options for any situation, across the spectrum of conflict Rapidly deployable, highly mobile land forces able to fight on arrival Joint networked forces (all echelons) and linked sensors, shooters, and commanders for enhanced lethality Self-sustained forces (limited periods) and a greatly reduced theater logistics footprint 4 The Lens: Joint & Expeditionary Capabilities

Joint seabasing is an important initiative to advance joint force requirements for improved strategic responsiveness and operational agility within an antiaccess environment. The Army recognizes the potential for expanding and improving Army force projection and sustainment. It is critical to pursue efforts from a holistic appreciation of the entire future joint force projection challenge throughout the course of an entire campaign, not just during early operations. The costs and benefits of joint seabasing must be compared with the costs and benefits of other parallel developments, particularly SDHSS and HLVTOL, that also address joint force projection and sustainment requirements. 12 Army Operational Requirements for the Joint Seabase Critical role of seabase for seizure of air and sea Points of Debarkation for rapid introduction of non-seabased forces: deployment momentum Base for deployment and sustainment of selected elements of the current/future force Vertical maneuver of light and medium mounted forces from the sea to LZs in proximity to objective areas Base for joint command and control, including JFLCC Enable Reception, Staging, Onward Movement, and Integration at sea . . . Accommodate integration of Army Regional Flotilla Provide effective, deep fires to engaged forces ashore Extend TAMD to engaged forces ashore Complementary capabilities of AFSB and TSV Critical to include consideration of SDHSS and HLVTOL in concept 13

Centerpiece: The American Soldier Ultimate warfighting platform Proof that people are more important than hardware and quality more important than quantity Willing and able to endure wars hardships to accomplish the mission Lives the warrior ethos reflecting the spirit of the American pioneers Embodiment of the Army Culture 14 Summary We Are: Transforming an Army at war Applying lessons learned from current operations Nesting Army transformation within Joint transformation Using a modular framework for integrating new capabilities into the force Developing a joint, mobile, adaptive network Ensuring the Soldier remains the centerpiece of Army transformation 15
