The Infantry Squad: Decisive Force Now and in the Future
ARMY COMBINED ARMS CENTER FORT LEAVENWORTH KS MILITARY REVIEW
Pagination or Media Count:
THE U.S. ARMY dismounted infantry squad is today s most decisive force on the battlefield, yet it lacks access to capabilities it could use to truly synchronize the total fight. Despite new soldier equipment and technological advances we deployed in Afghanistan and Iraq, squads operate in the same manner their predecessors did in Vietnam and Korea and during World War II. The infantry squad has been excluded from the technological development that provided combat overmatch for the remainder of our forces. The future infantry squad needs Access to a complete mission-command and intelligence network. Organic and external on-demand feeds for situational awareness. Reduced soldier load and robotic improvements. A design that includes the human dimension as a foundation.
