Abstract:

In support of the Armys Title 10 Wargame Unified Quest 2010, U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense CommandArmy Strategic Forces Command USASMDCARSTRAT conducted a Warfighter Forum devoted to gaining direct insights into warfighters dependencies on space-enabled capabilities such as communications positioning, navigation, timing Imagery, and friendly-force tracking. The Warfighter Forum is one of several analytic events in the Chief of Staff of the Armys Unified Quest 2010 Campaign of Learning. During the event the support team collected observations and developed insights and recommendations that will feed USASMDCARSTRATs Space Power Seminar Wargame on Denied, Degraded, Disrupted Space Operations Environment Feb. 10 and the Armys Unified Quest 2010 Future Game May 2010. USASMDCARSTRATs Warfighter Forum event was conducted Dec. 8-9, 2009 in Colorado Springs, Colo., to leverage the availability of combat units at nearby Fort Carson. The primary participants for the facilitated discussions were members of 4th Infantry Division and 10th Special Forces Group. Subject Matter Experts from the command and mission partner space organizations were invited to enhance our discussions. The two-day event provided valuable inputs and the established over-arching objectives were achieved. Based on our observations and how well the Warfighter Forum was received by participants, recommend USASMDCARSTRAT institutionalize the event by reaching out to other combat organizations across the Army to properly inform space concepts and capabilities and prepare the Army for the future.
