The Army Futures Command Concept for Intelligence provides a plan for Army intelligence force modernization activities to support the Armys MDO AimPoint Force 2035 to conduct multidomain operations across the competition continuum against peer competitors. It provides insights to support the MDO AimPoint Force beyond 2035. This concept is a modification to the ideas outlined in the 2017 U.S. Army Functional Concept for Intelligence intelligence operates as an enterprise across all domains with extensive partner input. This concept extends those ideas to address the number one identified Army gap in conducting large scale combat operations deep sensing to support long range precision fires. Leading Army intelligence modernization initiatives are organizational changes to provide capability at echelons above brigade combat team and four materiel solutions to support the deep sensing problem. Organizational changes to support the MDO AimPoint Force 2035 enable theater army, corps, and division commanders to shape the deep maneuver and fires areas with long range precision fires and other effects. At theater level, military intelligence brigades have increased capacity and the new multi-domain task force has military intelligence capability. Expeditionary military intelligence brigades are re-purposed and re-organized to support the corps and division commanders rather than maximize downward support to the brigade combat team. Materiel changes to support the MDO AimPoint Force 2035 converge all sensors, all shooters, and all command and control nodes with the appropriate authorities, in near real-time targeting of a threat. The Multi-Domain Sensing System provides a future family of aerial intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance systems from very low altitudes to low earth orbit, which support targeting at the tactical and operational level facilitating long range surface to surface fires.
