Abstract:

The purpose of this project was to provide systems engineering Support to the Force XXI design and integration effort of the Battle Labs Integration and Technology Directorate, Deputy Chief of Staff for Combat Developments BLIT-CD and the Future Doctrine Directorate, Deputy Chief of Staff for Doctrine ,FUTURE-DOC at Training and Doctrine Command Headquarters. To scope the Force XXI design effort, we identified the needs, objectives, and criteria 0 Force XXI from a systems viewpoint. Effective needs are critical because the definition of a successful design effort is meeting or exceeding the effective needs of the client or stakeholder group in a cost-effective, high-quality way. So the effective needs must answer the question, Why are we redesigning the Army to Force XXI Five statements drawn with some modification from TRADOC Pamphlet 525-5, in our opinion, answer this question. They are I. To be trained and ready to win the first land battle with fewer, more economical but more capable forces. 2. To be rapidly tailorable, rapidly expansible, strategically deployable, and effectively employable as part of a joint and multinational team to achieve decisive results in future war and other operations in all environments. 3. To win simultaneous operations against foes of varying capabilities. 4. To find innovative ways to apply and combine current and new technologies, especially information technologies, for warfighting. 5. To win tactical battles quickly and decisively by maximizing information and combat power to dominate the battlespace.
