Task Force Modularity 4 Feb 2004 THEME: This series of decision briefs sets the Army on a course to become modular, ready, and relevant...in a true joint context. MESSAGES: 1. More than a modular design, this work represents an intellectual approach to force design that will drive a cultural shift in the Army....it embodies the Joint and Expeditionary Mindset. 2. This design represents our current/near term capabilities, joint enablers, and integrated campaign qualities with clear linkages to the future, FCS equipped force. We fully expect to grow these capabilities through a comprehensive experimentation and analysis program. 3. This modular design in clearly relevant to the Combatant Commanders, as it is lethal, agile, and versatile....with boots on the ground, ready to fight on arrival characteristics, and endurance for sustained land combat.
Your overarching mission to TF Modularity was to create a modular, brigade-based Army....more responsive to RCCs, better capable of employing joint capabilities.....rapidly deployable in self-contained units -- capable of full spectrum operations.... The essential tasks in that mission include developing maneuver and support Units of Action, and command and control Units of Employment. On the upper right of the chart you see a graphic representation of Units of Employment X and Y, (Division and Above), with maneuver and support Units of Action represented underneath these headquarters. These units are tailorable, so the commander of the JTF has the capability to assemble and fight powerful, lethal, agile units as part of a joint force. While today's brief will cover all aspects of this transformation (as shown at lower left of the chart), we will initially focus on one of the centerpiece elements of the Modular Army -- the Armored Brigade Unit of Action. As one of the two types of maneuver units in the modular force, this brief addresses the first essential task we have -- "establish BUAs as the basic maneuver module for Army forces." In the next slide, I'll show you a representative layout of the conversion path for the current divisions into this modular design....
On this chart, we portray a representative glide path to convert the current force of 10 active Divisions into 41-43 AC brigades....it is a 4 year glide path which completes the conversion prior to the first FCS equipped Unit of Action goes to Initial Operating Capability in 2010...the current Divisions convert to Units of Employment during this same period, and Support Units of Action (not shown) convert as well. The arrow highlights focus of the initial portion of today’s brief-- the Armored Brigade UA...and indicates we believe the current 17 Heavy Brigades can convert to 22 to 23 Armored UAs. These UAs will be as lethal as the current ones. Based on resourcing and other strategic decisions, the number and mix of UAs can change as we move forward -- this representation is a direct transfer of current force to the modular force.....and we have assumed that the 5 planned SBCTs will be fielded IAW the current schedule.
With your guidance in September, TF Modularity assembled a team of the best minds we could bring together: Members of all the other services, Special Operations, Greybeards from the Army and other services, and an active and retired team of Soldier focused people.....we began discussions with Fuzzy Webster and the 3ID as they began their own redesign work, and although we were on separate paths in many respects, we kept up an active dialogue to insure we were learning from each other as we worked..... Later in the Fall, we came back to you with mission analysis, course of action development, and an in progress review of our efforts. Your subsequent guidance led to an intensive study and analysis of all previous work in redesign, and a dedicated analysis of the courses of Action, to include later analysis of the 3ID Marne design, to develop the most lethal, agile, and versatile organization we could find. Similarly, we went to the Combatant Commands and JFCOM, and reviewed their operational requirements relevant to land campaigns, and mapped our design work against over 300 requirements. In partnership with the AASLT and the Army staff, we also began a detailed feasibility study of what the conversions would cost. Additionally, we brought in a number of critics and showed them our work, and garnered their insights. Some, like Colonel Doug MacGregor, were part of the Task Force from the outset....others, like Mr. Bill Lind and LtGen(R) Van Riper, USMC, were asked to come in for a series of review sessions. We learned much from these people, and we believe they bought in to at least some of our work. MG(R) Bob Scales, for example, offered to help us "tell this great story" outside the Army....we have our second day long experts session in early March, and the electronic/mail/phone dialogue continues every day..... On the next two charts, we'll describe the results of our analytics as we narrowed the course of action work toward a recommendation for an Armored Brigade UA decision...
Our recommendation is shown on the lower center of this chart -- as a variation of COA 1. The original COA, shown at the top of the page, presented a series of risks which I reviewed in the comparison chart earlier....so we took several mitigation measures, which were vetted with a number of key leaders and stakeholders, to develop the recommendation you see. From left to right, I'd like to highlight some key measures: We saw a clear vulnerability in the UA with 3 separate companies as part of the Brigade UA headquarters -- HHC, MI, and Signal -- so we consolidated them into a Brigade Troops Battalion. We noted a lack of reconnaissance and security in the 2 battalion formation, as well as additional fighting power if needed to develop the situation, so we added a 3rd recce troop to the Armed Reconnaissance Battalion. Concerned with the lack if infantry for complex terrain, SASO, and other close combat missions, we added a company of Infantry, leading to the formation of two, 4 company, balanced battalions. This gives the brigade commander 8 companies, with the potential for 10 (with the Engineers), or even 13 (if the Recce troops are committed).....the Infantry can fight away from the Bradleys, or in the "traditional" mechanized role. For COA 1, we also saw a lesser lethality in the 2X6 configuration of Paladin howitzers in the Strike Battalion, so we added enough to go to 2X8 guns...that also gave us 4 platoons to fight with. Fuzzy Webster indicates that he has seen the same shortfall in his experimentation work in the 3ID, so we think this is a good mitigation step. Finally, we saw great improvements in versatility and agility by adding Forward Support Companies into the recon/manuever/strike battalions.....this was part of COA 2 up front, and it makes good tactical sense with a distribution based formation. Our tactical concept is to fix forward rapidly, resupply by cycling units into and out of the fight, so the FSCs fit well in that concept.
Here we map the path of this proposed design to the FCS equipped formation we will field within the next 10 years....the characteristics of interdependence, joint qualities, versatility and agility for full spectrum operations....all of those are here now in this design. The UA can be packaged to deploy rapidly in support of the RCC, ready to fight on arrival with boots on the ground, and rapid growth in combat power as forces arrive. As enablers improve and overhead goes down, we think it may be possible to out a 3rd maneuver battalion into the UA -- and every commander and senior leader we consulted said when we can support that step, we should take it....the good news is this formation has all of the capabilities resident inside its design now to take in and fight the 3rd battalion....so other overhead to go with it isn't necessary. There is a clear path from the current to the future in all facets of this design, and we're excited about the potential for spiraled growth this concept entails.....
Task Force Modularity recommends the Two Battalion Infantry UA Brigade Design that mitigates risk by incorporation of combat and joint enablers, while staying under 3000 spaces. The design reflects not only best of breed ideas from OEF/OIF, the Light Infantry Study, but also insights from our previous Armored Brigade work. Additionally, in the development of our designs we incorporated the advise of our panel of experts and the Chief of Infantry.
The UEy will be the the principal Army headquarters at the theater strategic/operational level that plans and executes major land operations as the Army component command to a RCC, or as a joint or coalition land component commander. The UEy is also responsible for orchestrating joint, multinational, and interagency support as well as performing support to other services (ASOS). At the higher tactical level, UEXs are the execution echelon for decisive operations in MCO and major theater war. At this level, UEXs employ combined arms, air-ground maneuver for decisive action. Highly tailorable for specific missions, UEXs support committed combined arms UAs with long-range fires/effects, ISR, and maneuver support capabilities allocated or mission-tailored from UEY as required by the tactical situation and assigned objective. Directed to deep objectives, the UEX will have the assigned capability to conduct operational maneuver by ground, with augmenting operational level assets and joint support to do the same by air. Organic joint linkages permit the UEX to coordinate joint support independently or through its higher headquarters. Key enablers for higher tactical operations include advanced aviation, long-range precision fires, multifunctional sensor/attack UAVs, and advanced C4ISR networking. Overall, the incorporation of these kinds of advanced capabilities will enable mission-tailored UEXs to be smaller, but more effective than current units.
Depicted is the composition of the UEx Headquarters and special troops battalion. The headquarters has its signal battalion and security company embedded into its structure. The staff operates from four mutually supporting locations: a Home Station Operations Center (HSOC), Deployable Command Posts (DCP) 1 and 2, and the commanders mobile command group (MCG) with battle command on the move.
The five types of support UAs with a notional depiction of subordinate units are depicted on this chart. Each support UA consists of redesigned multifunctional headquarters and a mission tailored package of existing battalion and smaller-sized units that have already been designed for modularity. Support UA headquarters will replace a substantial number of existing 06/07-level division and corps HQs.
We are recommending five distinct types of multifunctional support unit of action headquarters to be organized to provide and manage additional capabilities not resident in the maneuver UAs. The five types are: Aviation, Strike, Protection, Reconnaissance and Surveillance, and Sustainment.
This slide depicts the campaign qualities of a UEy. At the top of the chart is depicted the structure of a UEy regionally focused and tailored for an MCO with subordinate functional commands: a Theater Information Superiority Command (TISC), a Theater Protection Command (TPC), and a Theater Support Command (TSC) in addition to the Theater Army Special Operations Command (TARSOC) that it supports and is supported by. Based on the JFC’s requirements, these may themselves be joint, but in this case we show Army support forces. Note that the TISC has received joint assets for space and information operations, as well strategic signal brigades. The theater protection command provides JOA- wide AMD and other protective capabilities. The TSC has expanded to include tailored operational sustainment brigades, each of which can develop the base from which a line of operations may originate. The left side depicts a steady state of forces in CONUS stationed at various locations for readiness and deploying tailored rotational capabilities to forward based forces. The bottom right side depicts a notional portion of an Area of Responsibility (AOR) for a regional combatant command function employing the UEy in a MCO as both the ASCC and JFLCC. The JFLCC includes two tailored UEx and a USMC division-sized task force. The UEy has allocated forces and capabilities in the form of support UAs to the USMC force commander.
The UEy Headquarters design is similar to that of the UEx and consists of a Home Station Operations Center (HSOC), two Deployable Command Posts (DCP), and a mobile command group (MCG). Each of these elements is fully capable of providing command over subordinate units, but the DCP 1 is fully enabled to serve as a JTF or JFLCC. Unlike the UEx, the UEy is dependent upon theater-level assets for network operations, communications connectivity, and security.
This map demonstrates the types of units that would be employed by the Modular Army. These comprise a UEy level HQ serving as a JTF with its three functional commands (TPC, TISC, and TSC) serving in joint roles as well as the TARSOC. Three UExs are in this operation with UEx 1 making the main effort with a tailored package of maneuver and support UAs; UEx 2 is making a supporting attack along a northern line of operation with an Allied Division; while the UEx 3 is arriving to provide a follow and support force.
Our recommendation is to: - approve the proposed Armored Brigade UA design for implementation and further analysis - approve Infantry Brigade COA 2 for continued development and analysis - approve the Unit of Employment X construct and headquarters design - approve the Support UA designs for continued development and analysis - and approve the Unit of Employment Y construct for further refinement We believe our analysis and refinement efforts must continue, and we have a plan to do just that. 3 ID and their upcoming tactical training will certainly inform us, just as you have tasked them to examine certain options, and our ongoing modeling and analysis of the UEs and support UAs will also continue inform this design effort. AS you can see, we have several upcoming significant events at DA level that the designs of Task Force Modularity impact. Based on your guidance and approval we will also take this modular Army design to the Regional Combatant Commanders and other services for their review in March or April. Thus, by continuing analysis, experimentation, and work across the joint force, we will mature these designs. It should, along with our operational lessons learned, give us reasoned basis for making further decisions in determining future force characteristics. Pursuant to your questions or guidance, sir, this concludes our briefing.
