Abstract : This paper describes the Mobile Strike Force (MSF) 2010 analysis. This analysis provided input to the TRADOC Commander and the Chief of Staff of the Army to support decisions regarding FORCE XXI development and to the Battle Laboratory Integration and Technology Directorate (BLITD), TRADOC, in support of their Louisiana Maneuver New Technology issue. The TRADOC Analysis Center (TRAC) conducted a workshop to assess the impact of future technological capabilities and organizational variations enabled by these new technologies. TRAC assembled a group of subject-matter experts from the new technologies' proponent schools and centers to role play the MSF 2010 staff. TRAC used the Computer Assisted Map Exercise (CAMEX) model to execute the Southwest Asia (SWA) Prairie Warrior 94 MSF scenario with the MSF force structure, systems, and threat updated to 2010. TRAC conducted after-action reviews after each staff planning session to collect qualitative observations from the workshop participants. There was a base case and six alternatives that were variations on the insertion of new technologies and changes in organizational structure and MSF employment based on those new technologies.
