    • OFW Vision 01/11/13 07:10 1
    • Refining the OFW Vision• CSA’s strategic vision for the Army – Changing primary focus away from Transformation to the Objective Force to near term support of the Current Force, which is at war – Plans to reorganize Army combat forces now vs. over a 30 year period – Reorganization diverges from the previous CSA’s concept for FCS equipped Units of Action (see slides 3-6) – CSA is truly “Soldier-Centric” & “network-centric” vs. “platform-centric”• OFW vision (and name) must be refined to align with the new CSA direction• Request feedback from OFW leaders on OFW vision (slides 7-9) by COB Friday, 21 Nov 03 01/11/13 07:10 2
    • CSA Strategic Vision • Currently, 20 of 33 Army active brigades are serving overseas – Only two-thirds of an Army brigade are stateside, resting and training, for every one brigade that is deployed overseas – The insufficient slack means deployments are too long and there isnt enough rest time for Soldiers between deployments • CSA plans to fix the situation by taking the existing pool of Soldiers and dividing them into 48 brigades instead of the current 33 • Plans to re-train troops to turn all Soldiers into riflemen first, specialists in logistics and other subfields second • The reorganization will mark the most fundamental change in Army combat organization since the 1950s 01/11/13 07:10 3
    • CSA Strategic Vision • Main elements of CSA reorganization – Increase the number of brigades • Take the Armys 33 maneuver brigades and spread their personnel across 48 brigades – Push support roles down to the brigade level • Take the support brigades -- those that do artillery, supply and maintenance, for the most part -- and sprinkle their personnel across the 48 as well – New “brigade-based” structure will replace the current arrangement, designed for the Cold War when the Army was prepared to fight giant set- piece battles on European soil, where the support roles were organized at the division level – Improve the deployment ratio so that there can be two brigades at home for every one deployed overseas 01/11/13 07:10 4
    • CSA Strategic Vision – Make every Soldier a rifleman: The support troops in the new brigades will have to be more versatile as Soldiers • Where under the current structure troops have completed basic training then gone immediately into their specialized fields of logistics, etc., the new structure will require a higher level of combat proficiency from each Soldier • Draws on the traditions of the marine corps, where every Soldier is an Infantryman first, and on his own experience in the Special Forces, where every member of a 12-man "A" team is a special operator first, and a communications expert or medic second – CSA is putting into wider practice the analysis that smaller units make better and faster combat forces, which are better suited for the conflicts of our age, than do bigger, lumbering Cold War-style units – Reorganization increases the mixture of weapons and functions at a lower level of the force 01/11/13 07:10 5
    • CSA Strategic Vision – Changes will require a ramping up of training for Soldiers, so that all can be skilled in combat arms – Commanders who previously dealt only with combat troops will now need to lead logistics and other supporting forces as well – Todays engagements -- in Iraq, or indeed some future battlefield -- require rapidly deployable & lighter forces – Create two prototype organizations now (Jan 04) by reorganizing the 3rd Infantry Division (Mechanized) and the 101st Air Assault Division • Brigade sized teams become the basic maneuver modules for Army forces • Joint Fires Control Teams (personnel from any service authorized to call for and deliver joint fires) organic down to platoon level (Army trained personnel authorized terminal guidance) 01/11/13 07:10 6
    • OFW Vision• Battlespace dominance for small combat units of dismounted Infantry – Across full spectrum of environments, missions & scenarios – Against full spectrum of threats• Enabled by … – Networked Wireless Communications • Mobile, self forming & healing network with robust availability & bandwidth – Dominant Knowledge & Understanding • Collaborative, relevant & real time shared situational awareness & understanding – ISR “push & pull” to and from higher & adjacent Army & Joint forces – Organic ISR via Soldier-borne, unattended & unmanned vehicle sensors 01/11/13 07:10 7
    • OFW Vision• Enabled by … – Dominant Lethality • Organic piece of Joint Fires Control Team at Dismounted Infantry Platoon level • Battle Management to integrate Platoon combat power with Joint Fires – Synchronized & massed (simultaneous) effects • Increase volume, precision & stand off of organic LOS & BLOS lethality – Dominant Maneuver • Reduce Soldier carried weight • Organic robotic vehicles for load carriage & Soldier maneuver • Airborne & Air Assault capable 01/11/13 07:10 8
    • OFW Vision• Holistic, Soldier-Centric, System of Systems approach – Maximize human performance, soldier acceptability & utility – Enhanced & embedded training• Open architecture for – Spiral integration of emerging technology – Modular reconfiguration for other soldier variants (e.g., ground & air vehicle crewmen)• Organic mission duration of 24 to 72 hours• Enhance Stability & Support Operations – Modular Non-lethal capabilities• Deliberate, spiral development of small team requirements – Approved CCD at conclusion of ATD 01/11/13 07:10 9
