Abstract:

The Armys Objective Force is designed from the ground up to be part of the Joint, interagency and multi-national team in support of rapid deployment and operations against a range of threats, including defense of the homeland. The Objective Force concept and design is nested within the strategic guidance outlined in the current National Security Strategy, National Military Strategy, Defense Planning Guidance, Joint Vision. It supports the larger Department of Defense Transformation efforts that include the six 2001 quadrennial defense operational goals, the four transformational pillars and the emerging Joint capstone concept of full spectrum dominance. The Army will fight in the future operational environment as part of the nations Joint military forces. To maintain supremacy in this future environment, the Army must be more strategically responsive, deployable, agile, versatile, lethal, survivable and sustainable across the full spectrum of conflict. These seven characteristics, outlined in the Army Vision, are the foundation for the development and evolution of Army organizations, its operational concepts, required capabilities and missions.
