Essential Information[edit]

Modernizing For Greater Lethality

Provided by The Office of the Chief of Public Affairs, Department of the Army, 09 OCT 2017

Modernizing for lethality is about capabilities, not platforms. To be ready for the next war, the U.S. Army and the other services must effectively innovate and adapt concepts, equipment, and training. The U.S. Army is behind on modernization and U.S. forces are contested in all domains. The Army must adapt its modernization strategy to account for both current fiscal constraints and a complex, uncertain, dynamic operating environment. Innovative solutions and streamlined processes focused on prioritized capabilities will ensure the Army is ready to face any adversary across all domains.

The Army continues rebuilding the readiness stretched by 16-plus years of sustained combat and continued budget turmoil. The Army must fundamentally change its approach to modernization to consider multiple possible futures and leverage commercial innovations, cutting-edge science and technology, and feedback from the warfighter.

What continued efforts does the Army have planned for the future?

  • The Army will promote science and technology initiatives to field capabilities to the force through the 2030s.
  • The Army will sustain incremental upgrades by prioritizing capabilities that have the greatest impact against a near-peer threat and that can be in Soldiers' hands in the next 10 years.
  • The Army will take risks in new development by start new programs only if required to close an extremely high risk gap.
  • The Army will go slow and keep options open, slow down procurement, and keep programs going for when funding becomes available.
  • The Army will divest where appropriate by identifying equipment and systems that are excess, obsolete, or no longer required in order to reduce and eliminate the associated sustainment costs.
