The U.S. Army has introduced the global landpower network GLN concept as a means to integrate, sustain, and advance the considerable ongoing efforts in the Army to meet U.S. national security guidance emphasizing the importance of working closely with partner countries to achieve U.S. strategic objectives. The Army asked the RAND Arroyo Center to develop the GLN concept further, focusing on three key elements identifying the benefits of the GLN, defining the essential components of the GLN, and developing options for implementing the GLN. The study results will assist the Army in developing the GLN concept, facilitate a discussion within the Army on the value and prioritization of partner engagement, and identify options for implementing the GLN. It will help the U.S. Department of Defense evaluate national security guidance in line with service competencies for partner engagement. It should be of interest to those involved with crafting partner engagement policy and those charged with supporting these policies. This report documents the results of the Designing and Implementing the Global Landpower Network Concept study. This research was sponsored by the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command Army Capabilities Integration Center and conducted within the RAND Arroyo Centers Strategy, Doctrine, and Resources Program. RAND Arroyo Center, part of the RAND Corporation, is a federally funded research and development center sponsored by the United States Army.
