WASHINGTON (June 27) -- The Army released its Modernization Plan today in support of the Fiscal Year 2012 (FY12) President’s Budget Request for Army Research, Development and Acquisition (RDA) equipment funds.

The Modernization Plan is a blueprint for the Army’s priority equipment necessary for our Soldiers to succeed in current operations and to prepare for missions in a complex and unpredictable future.

It incorporates lessons learned from almost a decade of conflict and provides details on what is needed to build a versatile mix of tailorable and networked units and what is required to develop, field and sustain the needed equipment in an affordable, incremental manner.

The Army Modernization Plan 2012 is available at: www.g8.army.mil.

For more information, contact Lt. Col. Dave Gercken, Army Public Affairs, 703-697-7592.
